the EVS Codec. Although the main application of the VAD algorithm is the detection of speech or voice signals, the
algorithm is more accurately described as a Signal Activity Detection (SAD) algorithm.
The present document is a high level overview of the functionality with reference to the Codec Detailed Algorithmic
Description where the functionality is specified in detail.
