Featuring Cirrus Logic’s SoundClear™ and FlexArray™ technologies, the portfolio includes the EveryWord™ Audio Front End (AFE) Module, EveryWord™ Voice Module (System-on-Module + AFE), EveryWord ™ Development Kit, and EveryWord ™ Software Stack. ArkX’s production-ready voice capture solutions outperform other existing solutions in far-field voice capture and deliver a far-superior voice experience to consumers by capturing voice commands from three times the standard distance, around corners, in noisy and reflective environments, and without lowering playback volume. Additionally, EveryWord™ technology provides a unique ability to identify and suppress speech from T.V. or other single-point noise sources.
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 (unlike others’ linear beam-forming approach) enables fewer blind spots and increased performance while incorporating fewer redundant microphone arrays for coverage.
All ArkX solutions are Alexa-compatible and meet or exceed all requirements for the Amazon Voice Services (AVS) qualifications. In addition to Alexa, EveryWord™ is compatible with other platforms such as Google, Siri, Cortana, AliGenie, Baidu/Kitt.ai, Tencent, and Sensory. EveryWord™ voice solutions can be customized for a company’s eco-system and applied to various products, including speakers, soundbars, televisions, appliances, voice controllers, and gadgets. The modules can be installed in hubs, ceilings, and in-wall for smart home or office applications.
