The HD Connect Logo Committee has published Version 1.0 Guidelines for the incorporation and use of the HDConnect logo.
The purpose of the HDConnect logo and publication of the guidelines is to enable end-users the ability to quickly and easily make and receive high-quality voice calls over the Internet using VoIP — no legacy PSTN needed or desired. The logo will be applicable to devices, services, and technologies that participate in the larger HDConnect ecosystem for enabling high-quality calls.
Initial expectations are relatively simple at this point, with a user able to place and receive a call from one HDConnect product to another HDConnect product by using a SIP URL and be connected, with the wideband G.722 codec providing the “ride” for audio. The end user should just make the call without additional configuration.
Version 1.0 of the guidelines also provide a testing protocol for HDConnect functionality and an number of best practices, including an indicator that the end-user gets a positive indication that a call is connected in wideband audio with the use of an LED, icon on a display or an audio announcement.
The original, unmodified (i.e. how it was given to me) HDConnect Logo Version 1.0 Guidelines are available for download in Microsoft Word (.doc) format.
