Telecommunications company Bitė Lietuva has informed that they will be launching a new service which will enable the possibility to make calls of high sound quality – HD voice. 

Telecommunications company Bitė Lietuva has informed that they will be launching a new service which will enable the possibility to make calls of high sound quality – HD voice.

The company also claimed that it is a new standard of regular calls and the first innovation in this field in last 20 years. The service allows customer to hear more natural voice of interlocutor and reduces sound of noise in the background.

“Sound quality of today could be compared to regular television and HD voice – with high definition television. It is a new worldwide standard of the highest sound quality that can be experienced by customers of Bitė. They will be able to hear voice intonation of their interlocutor as he will be standing next to them,” said Chris Robbins, CEO of Bitė Lietuva.

The quality of HD voice calls can be experienced by owners of the newest smartphones, further writes Bitė Lietuva. Some smartphones will show letters HD on their screen when such call will be made. Even though these letters will not appear on the screen of specific smartphones, customers will hear considerable difference in sound quality.

“If operator or smartphone is not compatible with HD voice standard, the quality of the call will be a bit lower than actual HD voice. But the quality of the call to our customers will be higher than to customers of other operators who will hear regular sound,” continued Robbins.

Transmitted sound during the regular call are in the specter of 300 and 3,4 thousand hertz and during the HD voice call this specter is widened almost two times. This standard allows transmitting sounds between 50 and 7 thousand hertz, so the voice during a call is much richer.

Bitė has further informed that the customers can experience free-of-charge HD voice calls in whole Lithuania where 3G network is accessible.

HD voice was presented in the US, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Finland, Saudi Arabia, Canada and other countries.
