In 2008 Digital voice was in its infancy. Both the ADR 9000 modems and D-Star were devloped in 2004 and later released on the market. By 2008 D-Star had begun to spread across the States and was slowly gaining popularity in Europe. Free DV was an attempt to produce an open source system which would allow experimentation by radio amateurs. In years to come a company by the name of Rowenta developed a modem with many enhancements as a result of experimentation. The Video below shows the state of play in 2008.
