VocalFusion Stereo Dev Kit:
In home electronics devices, this technology accurately captures voice commands from across the room, even in complex noisy environments, and when the same audio appliance is playing content at high volume. This development kit is the world's first stereo Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) far-field linear microphone array solution.
Uniquely, the solution also supports configurable AEC latency, where the AEC reference signals can be accurately calibrated, and the latency adjusted, to enable after-market far-field voice accessories for existing consumer electronics products. Available as an Amazon Alexa Voice Service qualified solution, and for use with Google, Baidu or other voice enabled AI systems.
An advanced blind sound source signal separation technology that spatially identifies individual speakers or conversations within a crowded noisy audio environment to optimise voice capture and input into speech recognition systems.
This technology elegantly solves the cocktail party problem, and opens up a wide variety of applications from video and conference calls, to automotive.
