CouthIT, a leading global provider of highly optimized, best-in-class, speech, audio and video codecs was the first company to obtain a development license of the RT Audio codec from Microsoft, to help OEMs and Design houses quickly deploy the Microsoft Unified Communications solutions on ARM cores.

CEO of CouthIT, Krishna Nagarajan, who had envisioned that the agreement would expand their product portfolio for IP telephony, said: "The collaboration between CouthIT and Microsoft on IP telephony solutions will help address the needs of companies building solutions using Microsoft Unified Communications platform. We are now keen to enable OEMs and Design houses using ARM cores, achieve the desired optimization in CPU and memory footprints to support the RT Audio codec so that the precious processor resources can be freed up for other critical, resource-intensive software blocks."
