Technical Committee (TC) Speech and Multimedia Transmission Quality (STQ)
We are responsible for standardization relating to terminals and networks for speech and media quality, end-to-end single media and multimedia transmission performance, Quality of Service (QoS) parameters for networks and services and Quality of Experience (QoE) descriptors and methods. New specifications published recently cover methods for objective assessment of listening effort, and characterization methodology and requirements for the LC3plus speech codec. With our Working Group STQ Mobile we work closely with the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP™) and collaborate with other Standard Developing Organizations. The Committee regularly organizes Workshops, successfully bringing together key stakeholders, promoting ETSI work and attracting participation in TC STQ. The next workshop will focus on Emerging Services for Speech and Audio, and will take place in Bratislava, Slovakia, on 27-28 October 2020.
