VAD/CNG

The VAD determines whether or not speech is present in the outbound signal, when speech is not present, the CNG algorithm generates a "comfort" noise signal.

FEATURES

Voice Activity Detection/Comfort Noise Generation for ARM
  • Functions are C-callable.
  • Multi-channel capable
  • Can be used with all types of speech coding
  • Spectrally shaped noise generation


VAD / CNG is used in systems that used reduced bandwidth channels during silent or non-voiced portions of a conversation.

ADT VAD / CNG is available on the following Platforms: Other configurations are available upon request.

DESCRIPTION

Adaptive Digital’s VAD/CNG software performs voice activity detection and comfort noise generation. It is used in systems that used reduced bandwidth channels during silent or non-voiced portions of a conversation. The VAD algorithm is used at the transmit side of a communication link. The VAD determines whether or not speech is present in the outbound signal. If speech is not present, the VAD algorithm determines the level of the background noise. The background noise level is transmitted to the opposite end of the link in place of the speech signal. The noise level requires little channel bandwidth and only needs to be transmitted when the background noise level changes. The CNG algorithm runs at the receive side of the link. When speech is not present, the CNG algorithm generates a noise signal at the level sent from the transmit side.

Applications include Voice-Over-Packet, Satellite, and other digital voice applications.
