LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#IoT—ArkX Laboratories, a joint venture between Silicon Valley pioneer Surfaceink and ArkUSA Electronics, is challenging the status quo of voice technology at the CES 2023 Show in Las Vegas. When it comes to voice recognition performance, “good enough” is no longer acceptable. Users are frustrated with their devices’ lack of understanding, reliability, and accuracy, especially at a distance or in noisy environments. OEMs in the voice space should take notice.
ArkX Laboratories’ EveryWord™ Ultra Far-field Audio Front End (AFE) Module is at the center of the company’s production-ready portfolio. It features Cirrus Logic, NXP, and Sensory voice capture and control technologies. EveryWord™ delivers far superior human-to-machine and human-to-human speech recognition accurately at 3X the distance of standard far-field, around corners, and in noisy and reverberative environments. Its unique ability to identify and suppress speech from TV or other competing single-point noise sources makes it unmatched in the voice marketplace.
This technology is a game-changer for Fortune 100 Brands, OEMs, and start-ups who want to upgrade or develop their own voice-enabled devices while reducing development time and costs, mitigating risk, and accelerating their time to market.
EveryWord™ technology does not require source-ducking for reliable interaction, provides linear, circular, square, triangular, or 3-D mic array geometries, and requires fewer microphones. The technology features ultra-low power battery operation for wake-on-word, and the flexibility for placement of microphones allows for in-wall, ceiling, or dashboard solutions. The 3D mic array (versus others’ linear beam-forming approach) enables fewer blind spots, and increased performance while incorporating fewer redundant microphone arrays for coverage.
With the addition of Sensory hands-free technology, OEMs can create their own branded voice experience with custom wake words and command sets.
EveryWord™ voice solutions can be customized for any company’s eco-system and applied to a wide range of products, including healthcare devices, robotics, kiosks, speakers, soundbars, televisions, appliances, and any smart home device. It is perfectly suited for loud public environments such as offices, and industrial, hospitality, or educational spaces.
To experience the unmatched performance of EveryWord™ voice capture and control firsthand, visit ArkX Labs on the CES Audio Floor, Suite 29-203, in the Venetian Towers, January 5-8, 2023.
