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 ETSI LC3plus speech codec. TC STQ also published a report to evaluate aspects of speech transmission based on the observed media volume in terms of time units. With our Working Group STQ Mobile we work closely with the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP™) and collaborate with other Standard Developing Organizations. STQ Mobile recently published a report to provide recommendations on how to best measure the network performance vs. user experience of downloading modern web content. The Committee regularly organizes Workshops, successfully bringing together key stakeholders, promoting ETSI work and attracting participation in TC STQ.
