The SX1200P provides speech at 1200 bps making it the lowest bit rate coder
available for Internet Telephony. However, it is also suitable for a variety of applications other than Internet Telephony.
This speech codec is
recommended for situations where ultra low bit rate is paramount. Applications such as video
telephony, voice messaging, and multimedia conferencing over narrowband channels are ideal for
the SX1200P since it uses very little bandwidth. Modest memory and processing power requirements
enable implementations of the coder on general-purpose processors such as Intel's Pentium™
or on inexpensive DSPs.
