For a long time, many a VATSIM user has asked for a new codec which will bring better clarity and ease to using voice on VATSIM. Well, the time is now upon us and the first preview of the new codec has been shown off over on VATSIM’s YouTube channel.
The video shows off some of the new features of this codec which include substantially better voice quality as well as the new blocking feature when more than one person tries to speak.
The team behind the creation of this codec have been working hard to produce this new voice software for VATSIM and this video shows off the amazing work that they have been able to achieve.
FSElite has been informed exclusively that we will be seeing a mass user trial in just the coming weeks and if all goes well will see a full release in a matter of weeks, not years.
I was lucky enough to be able to try out this new codec earlier today and I can vouch for it being a significant improvement over what is currently used on the network.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the progress of this codec so make sure to check back at FSElite for when more news becomes available.
