Digium Confirms Asterisk 10 Release, Media Engine Gets Makeover

"Asterisk 10, also known as Asterisk version 1.10, is a substantial update focused on the platform's media engine, according to Steve Sokol, Asterisk marketing director at Digium. Developers added a number of new codecs to the platform, including Skype's SILK codec, 32kHz Speex support and pass-through support for CELT, and it can support all types of audio. According to Digium, Asterisk previously operated on 8kHz and 16kHz sampled audio, but can now support 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 44.1, 48, 96 and 192 kHz rates for audio.

"'The new version is actually capable of negotiating the specific details of media,' Sokol explained. 'That's the biggest thing: a rip-and-replace of the media engine so that it's now capable of doing any kind of media or any video at almost any quality rate.'"
