Digi-Key deal means there is need to wait on EveryWord
Digi-Key Electronics is now an authorised distributor of ArkX Laboratories’ EveryWord Ultra Far-Field Voice Capture products.
The products enhance human-to-human speech recognition and superior performance. They target Fortune 1000 companies, OEMs, and start-ups who want to bring their voice-enabled smart products and devices to market.
ArkX solutions are production-ready and pre-qualified by Amazon Voice Service (AVS) to mitigate risks reduce development costs and accelerate time-to-market.
Michael Lang, EVP of ArkX Labs, said, "Digi-Key is an ideal partner for our overall distribution strategy to drive growth as we expand our product offerings throughout 2021 and beyond. They offer OEM engineers and developers a reliable resource to access our advanced voice capture solutions and provide first-class customer service."
Digi-Key e-commerce center will now showcase both the EveryWord far-field Audio Front End (AFE) Voice Module and the integrated Development Kit, featuring Cirrus Logic's SoundClear and FlexArraytechnologies.
The high-performance voice capture technology outperforms other existing far-field solutions and delivers a far superior voice experience to consumers by capturing voice commands from three times (3X) the standard distance, around corners, in noisy and reflective environments, and without lowering playback volume.
Additionally, EveryWord technology provides the unique ability to identify and suppress speech from TV or other single-point noise sources.
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 customised for a company's eco-system and applied to a wide range of products, including smart speakers, soundbars, televisions, appliances, voice controllers, and IoT products.
“We are excited to feature the EveryWord voice capture product portfolio from ArkX Labs to Digi-Key's customers around the globe," said David Sandys, Director of Technical Marketing at Digi-Key. "From ideation through design and prototyping to production, ArkX’s advanced far-field products enable engineers and developers to bring a powerful voice experience to their products."
