Orange HD Voice tech

Orange, a wireless provider and brand of France Telecom on Tuesday announced its future technologies at the La Collection show in Paris. Key among them is the planned introduction of High Definition Voice technology that aims to improve voice clarity during calls. The software will find its way into certain Orange handsets starting in December, and promises to reduce background noise by doubling the handset's ability to pick up the human voice.

Orange will use an Adaptive Multi Rate-WideBand (AMR-WB) codec that will up the voice quality but only between handsets that support it. Users with the HD Voice-enabled handsets will have the added benefit of hearing improved conversations coming from non-HD handsets. Orange said other networks will experiment with the technology in the coming months. [via T3]
