Low Complexity Communication Codec LC3 / LC3plus

As the quality of streaming content increases, so does the need for standardized solutions in audio coding. The complexity of the LC3plus codec meets the requirements of wireless communication platforms while still operating at low latency and low memory footprint. Even at low data rates, LC3plus provides high-quality speech and audio transmission. The LC3plus bit rate is roughly half that of legacy codecs, which facilitates low-energy audio services – making it possible to extend the battery life of products and create smaller devices. LC3plus features greater robustness against transmission errors, even lower encoding delay, and the ability to play back audio in high-resolution quality, for example on wireless headphones.
