Octasic Introduces Echo Cancellation Software for End-User Devices

Octasic introduced its SoftEcho software suite for enhancing the audio quality of VoIP calls. Based on Octasic's Echo Cancellation algorithms, SoftEcho is a readily portable solution for up to 4 channel voice applications enabling manufacturers to integrate superior voice quality into their products.

Octasic is offering two versions of the SoftEcho suite initially.

  • SoftEcho AEC (Acoustic Echo Cancellation) version is designed for acoustic echo situations such as hands-free and speaker phone uses. This product is intended for such applications as the demanding car hands-free environment or wireless handsets where the environment is unpredictable, with specific extensions for noise reduction.

  • SoftEcho LEC (Line Echo Cancellation) version is designed for manufacturers of IAD's or PBX's. This product allows for simple integration of a ready-made, complete solution that delivers the best audio quality through added features such as complex echo point support, which is crucial when multiple hybrids are crossed, as is the case during conference calls.

SoftEcho is available for a variety of applications, including:

  • Car-hands free kits

  • IP Phones

  • Desktop speaker phones

  • Table top conference phones

  • IAD (Cable, DSL)

  • SOHO routers

  • Analog Gateways

  • IP DLC Line Cards

  • IP PBX

The SoftEcho Suite is configurable with a high-level ANSI C API, which allows for a simple interface for all development. Coupled with Octasic's support and porting expertise, customers can receive an optimized code for their particular platform without compromising sound quality.
