VoIP device manufacturer Ooma announced today new high-definition voice technology that company officials claim sets a new industry standard for voice quality.
The new HD Voice component of Ooma PureVoice delivers what officials describe as “natural, life-like voice quality,” for a “superior” home telephony experience.
“As consumers we demand the highest resolution viewing experience on our TV's – now it's time to expect the same from the telephone. Ooma sets the benchmark with its Ooma HD Voice offering, enabling rich, lifelike sound quality,” said Jim Gustke, Vice President of Marketing at Ooma.
This new update will be rolled out automatically for all Ooma Telo customers beginning today.
Since the launch of its PureVoice technology back in April, Ooma has continued to put a particular focus on voice quality for home phones.
I had a chance to review the Telo device recently and was impressed by the ease of use and ability to centralize all my communications via one device.
This latest HD Voice capability now means Ooma Telo users can have twice the fidelity of a standard phone line when calling other Ooma Telo users.
In addition to HD voice, the Telo also includes advanced voice compression, Wirespeed QoS, adaptive redundancy and encrypted calls for privacy.
“Telephone call quality is an area of technology which has yet to evolve since the
1960s – before many of us were born,” said Richard Tehrani, CEO of TMC (News - Alert).According to Tehrani, VoIP makes it possible to improve call quality and Ooma’s decision to focus on this area of the market is impressive.
“This focus on the sound of phone calls coupled with Ooma’s relentless addition of
new features are two reasons to consider the company’s products for your home
or business,” Tehrani said.
