Spectrum is a valuable commodity and it is the responsibility of governments to manage it appropriately. Much has been made recently of the Spectrum Squeeze both sides of the Atlantic with discussions on White Spaces and the Digital Dividend. With bandwidth at such a premium the Audio Industry has been forced to consider new technologies that make efficient use of spectrum without sacrificing quality or service. Within this context, we need a new revolutionary approach to maximizing bandwidth efficiency. The author will present a new and novel coding solution to overcome the prevailing technical limitations and industry requirements for wireless applications.
