In this short video Laurence Strong, XMOS, demonstrates how the VocalFusion Speaker Kit uses an adaptive beamformer, acoustic echo cancellation, dereverberation and automatic gain control to extract his voice while playing music. The demonstration also shows the integrated keyword detection and barge-in capabilities of the XVF3100 device.
The VocalFusion Speaker Evaluation Kit is based on a device from the XVF3000 family of voice processors. It is the ideal platform for smart speaker and smart TV designers who want to integrate far-field voice interfaces into their products.
At XMOS we believe the future of machine interaction lies in our voice. The ability to speak to computers and embedded devices the way we talk to humans will make it simpler to manage complex tasks and easier to control the many devices that fill our day-to-day lives; making advanced technology more accessible to all.
XMOS VocalFusion solutions create opportunities for manufacturers, retailers and entertainment companies to integrate voice interfaces to existing products, and design new product categories that change how we interact with our homes, work environments and leisure activities.
In this short video Mark Lippett (President & CEO) and Paul Neil (VP of Marketing & Business Development) explain why voice is so important as a way to interact with machines, and discuss the challenges faced to make voice interfaces ubiquitous across our home, office and leisure lives.
XMOS voice interfaces connect to automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems running remotely on Cloud servers or locally on an application processor. The captured signal allows an ASR to respond to a question or instruction in a natural and conversational way.
