Recently, 3GPP has finalized the standardization of its new communication codec for Enhanced Voice Services (EVS). This codec offers significant improvements over existing low-delay communication codecs. For a broad range of bit rates it supports coding of not only of narrowband and wideband audio, but also of super-wideband and fullband content up to 20 kHz audio bandwidth. The codec is based on a switched speech/audio coding scheme and features various tools for better compression efficiency and higher quality for speech, music, and mixed material. It provides all necessary features for (mobile-) communication and aims at providing a new level of user experience for all transmission-channel conditions. The workshop provides an overview over the codec, its performance, and applications together with a number of sound demonstrations.
