Voice Technology Company ArkX Laboratories Inks European Sales Agreement With Redtree Solutions

Share

ArkX Laboratories, a leading provider of advanced far-field voice-capture technology, has appointed Redtree Solutions, the largest Pan-European electronic representative in the semiconductor industry, as the exclusive sales representative for its production-ready EveryWord™ voice solution in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) marketplace.

This announcement coincides with growing demand from Fortune 1000 companies, OEMs, and start-ups in the region who want to bring their voice-enabled smart products and devices to market. The EveryWord™ portfolio offers a production-ready path that delivers an unmatched voice experience while mitigating risk, reducing development costs, and accelerating their time-to-market.

Featuring Cirrus Logic's SoundClear™ and FlexArray™ technologies, ArkX's advanced line of production-ready voice capture solutions outperform other existing solutions in far-field voice capture and deliver a far-superior voice experience to consumers. The products are Alexa-compatible and meet or exceed all requirements for the Amazon Voice Services (AVS) qualifications. In addition to Alexa, EveryWord™ is compatible with other platforms such as Google, Siri, Cortana, AliGenie, Baidu/Kitt.ai, Tencent, and Sensory. EveryWord™ voice solutions can be customized for a company's eco-system and applied to a wide range of products, including speakers, soundbars, televisions, appliances, voice controllers, and gadgets. For smart home applications, the modules can be installed in hubs, ceilings, and in-wall.

"The ArkX EveryWord portfolio solves the toughest problems facing innovative OEMs today, including capturing voice at a greater distance, around corners, in the presence of blaring TV, and other noisy and reverberative environments without having to lower playback volume," said ArkX CEO Eric Bauswell. "EveryWord truly outperforms the performance of standard far-field voice solutions by so large a margin that consumers will never want to go back to the 'old' technology."

Covering 19 countries with more than 500 active customers, Redtree will help accelerate ArkX Labs' market penetration in the region by generating greater awareness of the company's solutions and providing on-the-ground support to ArkX Labs' expanding customer base.

"We were impressed with the innovation and superior far-field performance of the EveryWord™ solutions. It's a huge leap forward and certainly the best far-field solutions ever seen on the marketplace over our 10+ years' experience in this segment," said Steve Judge, Redtree Solutions Managing Director. "The addition of ArkX's EveryWord™ voice solutions represent a strategic addition to our electronic component portfolio that will have appeal to many of our customers operating in the smart home, broadband telecom, consumer, robotic, automotive, and industrial marketplaces."

ArkX Executive Vice President Michael Lang added, "Redtree's experience, expertise, and support structure provides the perfect fit to help us expand our reach beyond existing North American and Asian markets."

The portfolio includes the EveryWord™ Audio Front End (AFE) Module, EveryWord™ Voice Module (System-on-Module + AFE), EveryWord™ Development Kit, and EveryWord™ Software Stack.

The product line offers clear performance advantages for capturing voice commands from three times the standard distance, around corners, noisy and reflective environments, and without lowering playback volume. Additionally, EveryWord™ technology provides a unique ability to identify and to suppress speech from TV or other single-point noise sources.

EveryWord™ technology does not require source-ducking for reliable interaction, provides linear, circular, square, triangular, or 3D mic array geometries, and requires fewer microphones. The technology features ultra-low power battery operation for wake-on-word, and the flexibility for placement of microphones allows for in-wall, ceiling, or dashboard solutions. The 3D mic array versus other linear beam-forming approaches enables fewer blind spots and increased performance while incorporating fewer redundant microphone arrays for coverage.

Luxembourg to Start Real Life Testing of an International Standard for a Digital Circularity Fingerprint for Products27.11.2020 12:00:00 CETPress release

The Ministry of the Economy of Luxembourg just launched phase two of the development of an international standard. It provides information on the circularity of products to all stakeholders involved along their value chains. A first viable version of the standard is being tested in real life, allowing to identify the most suitable governance model, the audit scheme and reliable IT systems for its management. Luxembourg started the Circularity Dataset Initiative in 2018 to address the difficulty for industry and consumers to access reliable data on the circular properties of a product. A lot of circularity information is missing, as its generation and handling requires too many human and financial resources. Furthermore, trade secrets are hindering transparency and reporting standards are lacking, forcing manufacturers to send out different data sets in diverse formats to customers and product platforms. To tackle these challenges, the Luxembourg government is working with multinational
