NEC rolls out HD voice support in new softphone

NEC’s new UNIVERGE SP350 softphone will support the G.722 HD voice codec when it is released in the United States in the second quarter of 2010, said a spokesperson for the company.

Updates to the company’s website to reflect support for G.722 are in progress and are not available line as of press time, but are expected to be made by the time the product starts shipping in North America.

The NEC UNIVERGE SP350 softphone can be used as a replacement or supplement to a standard desktop phone, a VPN-based remote/mobile user client, and has Microsoft Office Outlook integration.  It has all the usual bells and whistles for a softphone client, including drag and drop calling, presence information, and collaboration features like audio and video conferencing, applications sharing, file transfer, whiteboard, and instant messaging.
