Acacia Subsidiary Gains Access to Patents Related to High Definition Voice Technology

January 06, 2014

Voices are becoming much richer now. HD Voice Technology is taking a bigger wave. Cellular providers are pitching on improved call quality and this technology is slowly getting its position to do well. Worldwide, operators are trying to make mobile HD voice accessible to all. Mobile HD voice offers extreme clarity in audio and is sure to enhance the user experience.

According to the results of a recent survey, 96 percent of customers are satisfied with HD Voice calls, which have resulted in quick commercialization of the services across the globe.

Acacia Research Corporation is an American company which through various subsidiaries deals with patent licensing. Recently, the company’s subsidiary acquired patents for wideband speech and audio compression technology.

Speech compression plays a great role in voice transmission with limited capacity.

"As our licensing success grows, an increasing number of technology companies are selecting us as their partner for the licensing of their patented technologies," commented Matthew Vella, chief executive officer at Acacia.

"Acacia is rapidly becoming the leader in technology licensing and we continue to grow our base of future revenues by adding new patent portfolios," added Vella.

As an intermediary in the patent marketplace, Acacia partners with inventors and patent owners to unlock the financial value in their patented inventions. The company has been focusing in brindging the gap between invention and application, facilitating efficiency and delivering monetary rewards to the patent owner.

In a recent report, Susan J. Campbell, unified communications Contributing Editor, spoke about this souring technology. Also known as Wideband Audio, HD voice is becoming a standard on smartphones. It not only delivers a communications experience that is both crisp and clear, it also reduces background noise. It’s carried over LTE, taking advantage of 4G technology being built out by carriers seeking to dominate the lucrative mobile industry, noted Susan.
