HD Audio Recording

We've been offering audio recording for a while, but our audio recorder was saving audio in 8KHz, since it's the most used format in good old telephony and when we have calls to/from PSTN. When we work with VoIP endpoints that do support wideband audio (WebRTC, SIP, mobile SDKs) we can save audio with much better quality without downsampling it to 8KHz. We chose 48 KHz as the base sample rate for HD audio recorder, since WebRTC/Opus can offer this quality, audio from endpoints with lower sample rate will be re-sampled.

It's easy to use HD audio recording, just add hd_audio parameter in the recorder params:

// Example for the record method of the Call class function
call.record({hd_audio: true});
// Example for the Recorder class
require(Modules.Recorder);
// ...
const recorder = VoxEngine.createRecorder({hd_audio: true});
call.sendMediaTo(recorder);

You can also use the lossless parameter, which is mutually exclusive with hd_audio. If lossless is set to true, audio will be recorded in the "Flac" format.

What is a No-code Contact Center?

If you’re involved in evaluating cloud contact center services, you’ve likely recognized two distinct categories and a big difference in the amount of technical expertise required to implement them. You’re attracted to the ease of use offered by contact center as service (CCaaS) offerings, but their fixed functionality doesn’t fit your business needs. In contrast, a cloud contact center built on a communications platform as a service (CPaaS) offering provides unlimited flexibility, but requires expensive software development resources to build a complete solution.
