Enabling speech recognition and voice control from a distance in smart platforms requires overcoming substantial challenges related to echo cancellation, background noise, microphone speaker position and more. Conexant solutions are able to separate voice commands from background noise so that the speech recognition engine hears the user's command as clearly as possible, which in turn provides a far more accurate voice-enabled experience, even in noisy, real-world conditions, up to several meters away from the target device. The Conexant Far-Field Voice Input Processor solution for voice interactive devices is an industry first. This family of processors leverages Conexant AudioSmart™ far-field voice processing algorithms, enabling OEMs to deliver products, like NUGU, that offer a voice-enabled user experience.
"As the voice-enabled revolution continues to shift the way people interact with devices of all types, reliance on speech enhancement technologies that help devices hear user commands more accurately will continue to grow," said Saleel Awsare, President of Conexant. "Conexant has been a leading provider of voice processing solutions that improve speech recognition accuracy and enable advanced voice capabilities for years. We are pleased to be working with SKT to bolster the speech recognition performance of their NUGU smart speaker."
