SALT LAKE CITY, May 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cypher, a leader in next-generation audio enhancement solutions for mobile communications, today announced it has been included in Gartner Inc.'s "Cool Vendors in Human-Machine Interface, 2015" report authored by Werner Goertz and published April 13, 2015 which recognizes innovative, best-of breed vendors in the space of audio, gesture/motion control, handwriting and eye tracking.

"We are very pleased to be included as one of Gartner's Cool Vendors for 2015. We believe it highlights our powerful, effective, software solution for improving poor mobile audio quality," said John Walker, Cypher's chief executive officer. "By focusing on specific elements of human speech, our technology delivers better voice isolation, voice clarity and speech recognition performance than any solution on the market."

Cypher's novel approach uses math, neural networks and pattern matching techniques to detect and isolate the target speaker's voice and ignore all other background noises.

The result is a 99% reduction in background noise and over 20% improvement in audio quality according to third party, standards-based testing. It also boosts speech recognition accuracy and performance by up to 40% in noisy environments.

Unlike traditional noise reduction methods and emerging HD voice technologies, Cypher's patented technology does not rely on specific hardware or network upgrades. Instead, the software is fast and efficient and can be adapted to operate on a wide range of current generation mobile processors.
