Samsung and DSP Concepts Collaborate on Voice Controlled "Freestyle"
DSP Concepts, creator of the Audio Weaver development framework that powers sound and voice functionality for consumer and automotive manufacturers, is working with Samsung on the Freestyle, a portable screen with an integrated smart speaker.
For the Freestyle, DSP Concepts collaborated with Samsung to provide voice pre-processing for voice command recognition. DSP Concepts used the Audio Weaver design platform to craft a custom solution for the Freestyle based on its TalkTo audio front end technology. TalkTo combines advanced signal processing to create audio signals for voice assistants.
Designed with a three-microphone array, the Freestyle enables users to control the device with voice commands and interact with both Amazon Alexa and Samsung's Bixby.
"I see more and more of our customers moving toward adding voice and immersive audio features that bring connectedness and enjoyment into our home spaces. These days, our lives include a blend of physical and virtual togetherness, and Samsung is way out in front of that trend. We are thrilled that Audio Weaver can help our customers explore better ways to bring our devices, family, and friends more closely together," said Chin Beckmann, CEO and co-founder of DSP Concepts, in a statement.
