Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Harmonic Vector Excitation Coding (HVXC): Samples and / or encoders?

Hi, I'm learning a bit about HVXC right now, as defined in MPEG-4 Part 3.

I'm a big fan of Codec2, not least because in ham radio, digimodes (digital voice) is becoming quite popular. Codec2 is quite impressive of its ultra-low bandwidths, etc.

Now, I'd like to test HVXC against Codec2 a bit, but I can't find any listening samples, or encoders. If anyone can link me to those, that would be great.

Another thing is: when did the patent expire? I can't find any information about that, was it even patented? It was released as ISO/IEC standard in 1999, and then amended in 2000. As I understand it, the patent should've expired by now, but I'm not sure. As it is with AAC and MP3, it was covered but a bunch of patents, which were difficult to track down, as it isn't always 100% clear, whether a patent concerns that codec, or not.

However, I can't find anything about patenting pertaining to HVXC.
