Fortemedia Announces World's Leading Voice Processing Solution for Reliable Voice Recognition Targeting "Hands-free" Mode in Smartphones
SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Fortemedia Inc. (www.Fortemedia.com),
the world leader in voice processing technology, today announced its new
flagship platform, FM36-600, that addresses the market's need for better
voice recognition and clear talking, especially for hands-free usage on
smartphones. With the expected ability to speak at a greater distance in
hands-free mode, which is commonly used in Facetime™ and Skype (News - Alert)™, the
injected noise has been a challenge for the user. This is the case in
any noisy environment, especially for voice recognition. FM36-600 uses
two microphones to adaptively track talkers and form a "beam" that
effectively removes the noise outside of the specified area. With noise
rejected, a clearer voice is much more easily recognized by human and
machine, either for voice recognition commands or voice-to-text messages.
FM36-600 consists of a newly developed DSP and a novel voice processing
algorithm engine. Packaged in a small 2.3x2.3mm² chip-scald package
(CSP (News - Alert)), this very low power DSP supports up to eight microphones that
satisfy the need for the latest leading smartphones and other devices
that require better voice communication. The leading feature for
FM36-600 also includes multi-talking-angle compatibility that relieves
the constraints of a traditional fixed talking style. Furthermore, the
new platform allows for voice tracking in a multiple speaker scenario.
FM36-600 is suitable for other applications such as laptop computers,
tablets, smart TVs or 'infotainment' systems for automobiles.
"We are very excited about the release of this new flagship product,"
said Paul Huang, President and CEO of Fortemedia Inc. "FM36-600 solves
the challenges of clear hands-free communication, freedom of a phone's
holding positions and tracking multiple speakers in noisy situations. In
addition, FM36-600 enhances the applicability of voice recognition and
can be deployed in a wide range of scenarios."
Fortemedia will demonstrate these advanced features at the coming
Consumer Electronics Show, January 8-11, 2013 at the Las Vegas Hilton
Hotel, suite 319. Availability is limited, please contact email@example.com
to schedule private demo.
The mass production of FM36-600 is expected by end of Q1, 2013 and
engineering samples are now available for selected customers.
