Overview

The CELT codec is a compression algorithm for audio. Like MP3, Vorbis, and AAC it is suitable for transmitting music with high quality. Unlike these formats CELT imposes very little delay on the signal, even less than is typical for speech centric formats like Speex, GSM, or G.729.

Using CELT application developers can build software that allows musicians to perform together across the Internet, or simply build great sounding telephony systems. Why shouldn't your telephone sound as good as your stereo?
