Fortemedia Brings ForteVoice to New Samsung Smartphones

Fortemedia is providing ForteVoice iS820 advanced voice processing and self-adaptive adjustment features to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. ForteVoice's advanced noise suppression greatly reduces background noise in the calling mode, which also includes VoLTE support.

Fortemedia's latest-generation ForteVoice iS820 uses advanced microphone array processing (AMAP), a hybrid voice processing system that combines spatial filtering, source separation, and adaptive statistical signal processing. Furthermore, Smart Spectrum Analysis (SSA) and Acoustic Awareness (AA) technologies are implemented into this release. Acoustic Awareness is a noise environment classifier. The noise types that can be identified by the noise environment classifier in ForteVoice iS820 include traffic road, traffic X-road, train station, car cabin, cafeteria, quiet, office, home, pub, and church, or concert hall. Supported noise types can be further identified and customized.

"We are excited to provide the ForteVoice iS820 product, our latest-generation voice processing technology, which enables high-quality voice experience for Samsung's latest flagship products on a worldwide basis," said Paul Huang, Fortemedia's CEO and chairman, in a statement. "With our relentless innovation in voice processing solutions that enable Samsung to provide industry-leading voice quality, no matter in traditional or emerging 4G and 5G networks, we are glad and look forward to extending our partnership with Samsung that will continuously bring new and exciting features to their smartphones."

Fortemedia had previously worked with Samsung, providing the voice processing technology for its Galaxy 7 smartphones.
