Glensound’s Paul Grant to discuss HD Voice benefits

As part of the seminar programme on 16 February, Glensound’s chief designer, Paul Grant (pictured), will present a session headed ‘HD Voice – Your new secret weapon’.

A new technological approach that is still be discovered by broadcasters, HD Voice (AMR-WB) allows any compatible phone to connect automatically and provide 7khz audio bandwidth via Orange or 3 Networks. Apart from pro broadcasters’ phones manufactured by Glensound, this includes many currently available smart phones. Although 3G is required, it is seen by the phone network as a voice call – not data – meaning no set-up requirements or data charges.

In his session – which will take place in the Audio Room at 15:00 on 16 February – Glensound chief designer Paul Grant will explain the technology involved, demonstrate how it works and sounds, and explain the potential benefits to the sports and news reporting worlds.

Meanwhile, Glensound will be highlighting a wide variety of its broadcast audio products on stand F46.
