Global IP Sound for Symbian 9 and Windows Mobile 5.0

Some news to share from one of my favorite VoIP companies - Global IP Sound.

Global IP Sound (GIPS), the leading provider of embedded speech-processing solutions for the Voice over IP (VoIP) market, today announced that it is shipping two new versions of its VoiceEngine Mobile product, including VoiceEngine Mobile for Symbian 9 and VoiceEngine Mobile for Pocket PC with support for Windows Mobile 5.0. This latest product update also includes GIPS Voice Quality Enhancement (VQE) and encryption features, to give applications developers the tools they need to integrate high quality VoIP into their mobile solutions.

"Global IP Sound is aware of the challenges that developers of VoIP applications for smartphones and PDAs face," said Roar Hagen, Founder and CTO of Global IP Sound. "Our new releases focus on these challenges by handling the most common problems found in mobile devices such as background noise and echo.We are also constantly striving to provide our customers with the most up to date products by offering VoiceEngine Mobile on the broadest array of platforms possible."

The success of VoIP in the business and consumer marketplace will largely be driven by the availability of VoIP wireless handsets, analysts say. By 2009, over 66 million cellular/WiFi handsets will be in operation, according to a forecast from In-Stat, a market research firm based in Scottsdale, Ariz. Consumer VoIP subscribers using wireless IP phones will grow from 2 percent worldwide today to 73 percent by 2009, the firm adds.

The latest VoiceEngine Mobile for Pocket PC also incorporates GIPS VQE, which includes noise suppression and automatic gain control (ACG) to maximize the quality of VoIP conversations by reducing echo and background noise while adjusting speech levels to create a consistent and comfortable listening experience for mobile users.It also features support for the Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP), as well as the latest version of GIPS NetEQ, which is an advanced jitter buffer and packet loss concealment module that dramatically improves sound quality and minimizes latency in IP telephony systems.This is in addition to existing features such as support for push-to-talk and wideband audio.

VoiceEngine Mobile is now optimized for the newest generation of Symbian and Windows Mobile platforms and to give OEMs everything they need to extend the mobility of their end users, and to improve usability and voice quality compared to previous generation products.It also supports Symbian 7/8 and Windows Mobile 2003/04 for Pocket PC platforms.

The VoiceEngine family of products provides a common API across all platforms, including Microsoft Windows PC, Pocket PC, Linux and Symbian, in order to allow streamline product development for vendors and help them to rapidly integrate GIPS technology into their existing applications.
