Fortemedia Announces Availability of Next Generation Voice Processing SAMSoft™ iS700 Targeting All PC Form Factors at Intel’s IDF14 Shenzhen

Today, Fortemedia Inc. (www.Fortemedia.com), the leader in voice processing technology, announced that it will showcase SAMSoft™ iS700, Fortemedia’s latest voice processing solution, at Intel’s IDF14 (Intel Developer Forum) which will be held April 2-3, 2014 at the Sheraton Shenzhen Futian Hotel in Shenzhen, China.

SAMSoft™ iS700 improves voice recognition and voice communication, especially in noisy and heavy human traffic environments such as a cafe, restaurant or airport, by leveraging the availability of multiple (two or more) microphones that are being widely adopted by manufacturers of today’s notebooks and ultrabooks. For “always-on-the-go” consumers, iS700 provides enhanced key stroke and key pad noise suppression, enabling ultrabook and tablet users to multi-task by providing the ability to have a Skype or VoIP call while typing away on the keyboard. Consumers may also use these devices in a variety of use cases, providing a superior end user experience. Based on Fortemedia’s advanced beam forming technologies, SAMSoft™ iS700 enhances existing voice tracking and voice zoom features by allowing a beam to track the person’s voice in 3D, while eliminating noise, resulting in clear voice communications.

“Working closely with the Intel team, we are happy to provide leading edge solutions solving many of consumer’s everyday voice and speech problems. At the same time, we see increasing adoption of new use cases, resulting in compelling user experiences,” said Dr. Paul Huang, Chairman and CEO of Fortemedia. “SAMSoft iS700 is a breakthrough technology increasing usability without compromising performance in noisy environments. We are pleased to provide PC OEMs with this choice.”

More than 100 million SAMSoft™ solutions have been shipped worldwide with leading OEMs. SAMSoft™ is now available with selected customers.

Dr. Brian Bai from Fortemedia will be demonstrating and presenting these solutions jointly with Intel at IDF14 on Thursday, April 3 between 15:45pm – 16:45pm, in Theatre 7. Please contact [email protected] for additional information and to arrange meetings with Brian.
