Comparable to the AT&T TrueVoice concept, Sculptured Sound addresses a real-world network issue - effectively handling the problem of widely varying signal levels across different networks, with a comprehensive range of adjustment parameters to combat any given signal scenario.
The improved call quality is derived from the way in which Sculptured Sound adjusts the signal levels - by ensuring that operation is maintained closer to the optimum level, the effects of any potential distortion is minimized.
As the adjustment of the signal is typically conducted at a network gateway, Sculptured Sound can also have a beneficial effect on any coding equipment operating after the echo canceller in the network chain.
Coherent's Strategic Product Manager, Tushar Shah, explains the rationale behind the software's development: "The driving force behind Sculptured Sound was the need to find a solution to varying levels and their impact on network performance.
