Lockheed Martin, Adaptive Digital Tech. Sign Marketing Agreement for Vocoder Technology
Companies collaborate to deliver ultra-low rate voice coding technology to the VoIP market.
Valley Forge, Pa., February 19th, 2010 -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Adaptive Digital Technologies have signed an agreement to introduce Lockheed Martins voice compression technology Time Domain Voicing Cutoff (TDVC) to commercial markets. TDVC is a robust speech-coding algorithm that delivers superior voice quality, while operating at much lower bit rates than standard voice codecs of comparable quality. TDVC is highly suitable for voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) wireless communications as well as other markets.
"Through joint marketing, development and distribution, we look forward to working with Adaptive Digital to provide advanced voice compression technology," said Larry Easton, Director of Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Services-Defense's Ventures organization. "Adaptive Digitals expertise in all facets of voice communications offers us an opportunity to bring our TDVC technology to a wider set of customers and applications."
