Disrupted Voice & Video Calls
We want to be able to make calls or shoot videos anywhere, even when we’re amongst other people talking. Calls made in busy environments are easily disrupted by unexpected sounds – particularly nearby voices.
Existing solutions based on noise suppression may reduce listener fatigue but won’t improve speech intelligibility and won’t remove competing speech.
Technology that relies on beamforming only focusses a device’s microphones in a specific direction, amplifying all sounds in that direction.
