Fortemedia Announces Its World Leading Voice Processing Technology Is Now Available on the Qualcomm Hexagon™ DSP
SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Today, Fortemedia Inc. (www.Fortemedia.com),
the leader in voice processing technology, announced that it will
present and showcase its latest multi-microphone technology at
Qualcomm's (News - Alert) Uplinq™ 2013 wireless ecosystem conference, which will be
held Sept. 3-5, 2013 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel. As
Qualcomm's annual conference, Uplinq provides a cross-platform view of
how to exploit the powerful capabilities of today's leading mobile
devices to produce the most compelling user experiences and cultivate
the business connections essential to be successful in mobile.
Fortemedia will be located in booth #215.
Based on Fortemedia's advanced beam forming technologies, smartphone
users now have the ability to use their phones in a more natural way for
both handset and hands-free modes. By utilizing two or more microphones
that form a "beam" to suppress outside noise, smartphone users can now
enjoy much-improved voice quality, even in a crowded restaurant or high
traffic environment. The latest technology adds new features suc as
voice tracking and voice zoom that allow a beam to track the person
speaking. This is best used when the phone is in speaker mode, on a desk
or sits on a car dashboard cradle. Fortemedia's solutions have been
adopted and shipped in more than 30 models of devices from leading
smartphones, tablets and ultrabook ODMs today.
This level of high-performance voice processing technology was supported
by a stand-alone DSP in the past. However, with this new development, it
is now available on Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors. The new
approach with iS600 also allows for lower power consumption, a smaller
footprint, flexible features and lower DSP silicon cost.
"iS600 is the breakthrough voice processing technology that helps phone
ODMs achieve lower cost, lower power consumption and provides increased
flexibility in phone designs without compromising performance. At the
same time, it inherently improves voice quality to help support features
such as voice recognition in noisy environments," said Dr. Paul Huang,
Chairman and CEO of Fortemedia. "We are excited to work with the
Qualcomm Hexagon™ DSP team to bring this solution to customers and
provide phone ODMs with a better voice processing choice."
iS600 is now available for selected phone and tablet customers and has
been considered by several leading ODMs for their next generation of
