Alec Saunders asks if HD Voice can help reinvent VoIP or light another fire. I say yes, and all you need to do is talk to clients HiDefConferencing or GIPS, as both are experts in the art of delivering voice in HD. HiDef Conferencing is in the business of delivering the best high quality audio in the conferencing business, as conference calls over their SIP based service always are more alive and more colorful.
GIPS is in the business of developing the best audio and video codecs for real time communication. Instead of all the so called experts and pundits weighing on why HD is the future, my vote is to ask those who pioneered the concept, and had the vision and fortitude to make it work.
