High-definition (HD) audio conferencing
Muffled, bad quality phone conversation can now be a thing of the past with HD audio conferencing.
More and more people are holding their meetings via phone rather than wasting money and time travelling to business meetings. However, sometimes those meetings can be plagued with call dropouts and bad audio quality. HD audio conferencing is the solution for the future.
Listen to the difference between standard definition and high definition:
How does HD audio work?
Instead of limiting a call frequency to between 300 Hz and 3.4 kHz, a wideband audio call transmits at a range of 50 Hz to 7 kHz, or higher. That's much more in line with the human voice, which transmits audio between 75 Hz and 14 kHz. HD Voice also takes in more audio samples per second than a standard call. Instead of 8,000 audio samples per second, HD Voice calls double that to 16,000. That way, you're able to hear more details in a person's voice during a call by using a higher-quality speech codec called AMR-WB (Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband). This codec doubles the frequency of the call, which means you'll hear less muffled voices and be able to better distinguish between "s" and "f" sounds. Source
The voice of the speaker is recognisable, accents are more readily deciphered, superfluous noise is cut out, and it's easier to hear people talking over one another. Sounds are louder and more lifelike, with loud background noises hushed. Source
The future is here for Eureka Conferencing

Secure voice encryption technology
What is voice encryption?
Voice encryption is the process of encoding messages or information in such a way that only authorised parties can read it. Encryption does not of itself prevent interception, but denies the message content to the interceptor.
Why use voice encryption?
With increases in the number of public cases of hacking, data breaches, and privacy concerns, most organisations consider call security and privacy to be very important. Voice encryption ensures that your confidential information remains confidential. Voice encryption can help. Source
- Maintain customer privacy
- Facilitate secure connections
- Reinforce confidentiality
- Protect from malicious users
How our voice encryption technology works
Our HD-encrypted voice conferencing and secure SIP signalling provide confidentiality, authentication and message integrity against manipulation, all via key distribution and certification.
All phone calls consist of two components;
- signalling - establishes parameters for building, maintaining, and breaking-down the call, and
- media/payload - the actual call audio, formatted into digital packets.
Data packets that contain voice and audio signalling are encrypted and authenticated (using an authentication tag) before they are transmitted to the network. The RTP and RTCP packets received from the network are verified using the authentication tag and decrypted. Packets which fail the verification of the authentication tag are dropped.
Voice encryption is imperative for;
- legal discussions
- corporate IR briefings
- emergency management
- medical confidentiality
- government/classified information
- trade secrets
- corporate actions, or
- proprietary discussions
Don’t allow unauthorised connections into your important discussions. Start using audio encryption technology today.
