Global IP Sound (GIPS) has announced an OEM license agreement with Microsoft for voice processing solutions. The solutions, which improve PC-to-PC voice quality, are expected to be used with MSN and Microsoft Office Real-Time Collaboration (RTC) solutions.
GIPS provides embedded voice-processing solutions for the Voice over IP (VoIP) market.
The MSN Service, which has more than 165 million active users each month, supports not only text instant messaging but also PC-to-PC voice and video services. MSN will use GIPS VoiceEngine, while RTC will take advantage of GIPS AEC (Acoustic Echo Cancellation) and GIPS AGC (Auto Gain Control) solutions to support those services for users that require high quality VoIP functionality.
“Microsoft’s adoption of GIPS technology for MSN and RTC is a major validation of our solutions and their ability to provide the best possible voice quality over the Internet,” said Gary P. Hermansen, President and CEO of GIPS. “There are over 200 million downloads of our software currently in market today, and the addition of Microsoft users further enforces our leadership as a provider of high quality VoIP software.”
