Vivox Uses Polycom HD Voice to Power the World of Online Chat Vivox Uses Polycom HD Voice to Power the World of Online ChatVivox Uses Polycom HD Voice to Power the World of Online Chat

3 November 2009

Vivox Inc., the market leader in voice services for developers of online games, virtual worlds and the social web, delivers voice chat to over 16 million users and supports billions of minutes of chat per month. Having doubled its number of users in the past year, the company expects to see exponential growth in the next 12 months thanks to a growing customer base and its recent launch of the Vivox Voice on Facebook application. One of Vivox's key differentiators is its high quality voice, which is powered by Polycom, Inc. [Nasdaq: PLCM] using the company's high definition (HD), royalty-free Siren™ 14/G 722.1C voice codec.
Since launching in 2005, Vivox has become the clear choice for developers and publishers that require a complete communications solution for its community, and the best for its brand. Recognizing the demand for the clearest communications among the gaming community, Vivox chose the Polycom Siren 14 codec for all of its online voice channels. Vivox HD voice chat brings the deepest level of connection and immersion to any experience where a user is engaged with a community. In a world where the stories within games and virtual worlds rival those of cinema and novels, voice renders emotion and imparts power. Quality voice chat is a game changer for players and developers alike who make these worlds and communities come alive, and Vivox is changing that game.

The move to HD Voice is inevitable
Consumer multimedia relies on state-of-the-art technologies to deliver the best end-user experience, and HD Voice is no exception. With the broadcast industry already standardized on HD technology for radio and television as well as the HD experience of MP3 players, iPods, etc., the next essential need for HD is the human voice. Carriers in Europe have already made strides in deliver HD voice over their networks, as stated in the New York Times article, Sound of Mobile Calls Gets an Upgrade.

Polycom, which first introduced HD Voice in its video conferencing systems more than 15 years ago, is also a visionary in delivering HD for voice communications. Polycom introduced its first HD phone in 2003 and now delivering its entire lineup of SoundPoint® IP desktop, SoundStation IP® conference and VVX 1500 business media phones with built-in support for Polycom HD Voice and other high definition codecs. Others telephone manufacturers are following suit; business-class phones that don't support HD Voice are rapidly disappearing, and the move to HD Voice across all communications modes is rapidly accelerating.
