Interference-Free Voice Assistance Accessible Anywhere in Your Home with DSP Group’s SmartVoice™ and ULE™ Wireless Smart Home Solution.
［Taiwan－Taipei］Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), the global leading motherboard, Mini-PC, Notebooks, mobile device, Voice-activated device, IOT, IOV, and smart solutions provider, announced today that will leverage DSP Group's SmartVoice™ and ULE™ technologies for new portable device that features DSP’s interference-free voice user interface (VUI).
ECS has designed a smart home display with Alexa built-in and far-field mics that allow users to be heard from around the house. Equipped with DSP Group's advanced ULE (Ultra Low Energy) SoC (System-on-a-Chip) and SmartVoice audio/voice processors powered by HDClear™, this smart home display is ideal for the up-and-coming IoT world. ECS did this by integrating DSP Group’s HDClear™ voice enhancement algorithms to support low-power, always-on voice activation and DSP Group’s ULE SoC for a reliable intelligent two-way voice channel.
Using one’s voice to manage the connected home, ECS’ new device opens up use of a portable smart display, sound dock, and Alexa capabilities from around the house. It’s an ideal starting point for anyone’s smart home, providing users with effortless voice control of smart devices like thermostats and lights.
ECS offers innovative smart solutions to build products for the smart home ecosystem, and needed a solution to avoid any disturbance or interference, plus offer exceptional voice quality. Ultra Low Energy (ULE) has become the ideal technology for Two-way voice support this features extremely low cost, low power consumption, long range (full house coverage with simple star technology), interference free, high-stable bit-rates, and value-added complementary voice and video capabilities. A market leader in ULE technology, DSP Group’s Solution is ultra-low energy, guarantees ultra-crisp voice quality, and offers superb range. Unlike other RF technologies, ULE utilizes a unique frequency band, making it more reliable than the crowded standard wireless networking systems. ULE features decades of design and development for high voice quality which strengthens the SmartVoice ecosystem.
The far-field voice reception and clear natural voice combined with low power consumption from DSP Group’s technologies is an elegant solution and is exactly what we envisioned for our wireless home network. ULE Technology was the clear choice for both our Whirlwind™ smart display and Sirocco™ wireless voice mini pods” says Joseph Lin, Vice President from Elitegroup Computer Systems.
“We are excited to work with Elitegroup Computer Systems and others seeking advanced technologies for high-end products and recognize the breakthrough power consumption and voice quality benefits of DSP Group’s SmartVoice and ULE technologies. Qualities like far-field reception and interference-free connectivity are instrumental in increasing the global adoption of integrative voice interface applications,” says Tali Chen, Chief Marketing Officer from DSP Group.
