In order to support the transition to HD VoIP, Broadcom is offering its BroadVoice family of voice codecs royalty-free and without any licensing fees.

Wideband and narrowband BroadVoice codecs, in both floating-point and fixed-point C code, will be available as open source software.

The codecs will enhance the quality of voice transmissions by reducing latency, complexity and bandwith usage.

They also reduce distortion and echo on VoIP applications.

Dan Marotta, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Broadcom’s Broadband Communications Group said: “We are seeing an increase in the number of requests for HD voice support from service providers who want to differentiate their telephony services from their competition.

“By offering high performance and highly efficient BroadVoice voice codecs royalty-free, we are enabling manufacturers and service providers to transition to HD VoIP as a means to significantly improve their customers’ audio experience.”
