DSP Concepts Provides Voice Technology for the KT Genie TV

DSP Concepts, an embedded audio software provider and creator of the Audio Weaver development platform, has partnered with South Korean telecom KT to bring smart voice control to KT's latest set-top box, the Genie TV All-in-One Soundbar.

With the Genie TV, precision far-field voice recognition is enabled with TalkTo from DSP Concepts. Designed with the Audio Weaver platform and offered as one of several open IPs from DSP Concepts, TalkTo is an audio front end technology that combines advanced signal processing to create clean audio signals for voice assistants. With TalkTo, end-users can control the Genie TV and perform voice searches for content.

TalkTo makes it possible for the GiGA Genie AI voice assistant to respond. The Genie TV features a multi-microphone TalkTo design for far-field voice performance with acoustic echo cancellation, beamforming, and noise reduction algorithms. TalkTo processing runs seamlessly on the  Cadence Tensilica HiFi 4 DSP on the S905X4 SoC from Amlogic.

"We are thrilled to have this opportunity to build on our previous collaborations and join industry-leading audio partners on this latest award-winning product from KT," said Chin Beckmann, DSP Concepts' CEO, in a statement. "KT continues to define the shape of voice and sound with their innovative set-top boxes and soundbars, bringing smart, immersive entertainment into living rooms. We are especially excited to provide the development benefits of our Audio Weaver open platform, allowing KT, their ODM partners, silicon partner, and DSP Concepts to collaborate in the same environment and with full visibility throughout the development process "
