Erlangen, Germany - Aug 31, 2011 - Fraunhofer IIS has signed a licensing agreement with Nullsoft, which will enable the inclusion of Fraunhofer's MPEG audio codec software in Nullsoft's software products, such as Winamp and Shoutcast.

The Fraunhofer-provided codec suite includes HE-AAC v2 and HD-AAC. HD-AAC combines lossless audio quality with the flexibility and convenience provided by the underlying AAC codec.

The latest versions of the Winamp client and Shoutcast broadcast tools incorporate Fraunhofer's HE-AAC v2. Future versions will also feature HD-AAC.
