Trends and challenges of voice/audio pre and post processing in smartphones, tablets and mobile computing devices
With the growing demand for clearer, better-intelligible and noise-tolerant voice communication in smartphones and mobile devices, the DSP voice processing tasks are increasingly complex. Audio processing has become more demanding as well with >100h of audio playback time, and ample post-processing requirements for improved sound. In addition to increased complexity and higher performance, cost and power consumption must be addressed as well, to allow for a competitive solution. This webinar will review the growing mobile voice and audio processing complexities (wide-band codecs, multi-microphone noise reduction, speaker compensation and other post-processing), and trends in recent handsets such as the iPhone4S. A market proven solution based on the CEVA-TeakLite-III DSP family and the Alango voice processing SW package, to address these challenges shall also be reviewed.
Registrants will learn:
- The trends and complexities of voice and audio processing in advanced mobile devices
- The CEVA-TeakLite-III DSP architecture and voice/audio unique processing features
- The Alango Advanced-VCP voice processing SW package for mobile
