Video: AMBE exposed

AMBE is a voice compression algorithm employed in vocoder chips used by DVSI Inc., and is commonly used in Icom’s D-Star, Yaesu’s Fusion, APCO-25, DMR, Opensky and other digital formats on the amateur, commercial and public safety frequencies.

In this talk from last September’s TAPR/DCC conference in Austin, TX, Bruce Perens K6BP presented his views on the current state of the AMBE voice codec patent, and the potential this codec has in the amateur and radio experimenter community.
