Soundskrit & OmniSpeech Partner to Deliver Next-Gen Voice Experience for Edge Devices

Gives next-gen microphone path demo at CES 2024 at the Venetian in Las Vegas

Las Vegas, Nevada — OmniSpeech, the AI voice technology company on a mission to remove noise and improve voice quality on any app, device, or environment, and Soundskrit, a company on a mission to bring next generation microphone technologies to consumer electronic devices announced today a strategic technology partnership to empower voice experiences on edge devices. 


Leveraging a directional microphone from Soundskrit, and OmniSpeech’s next-gen AI noise suppression algorithm, the companies were able to reduce background speech by >30 dB compared to the speaker.



Use Cases and Benefits

The combination of OmniSpeech AI algorithms and Soundskrit directional microphones are ideal for low-power consumer electronics such as headphones and IoT devices.


With directionality built in at the hardware level, Soundskrit’s microphones bring the power of traditional 2-microphone omnidirectional arrays into a single device. By combining this with OmniSpeech’s next-gen algorithm, running on the edge, device manufactures can achieve:


  • Unmatched Background Noise Removal: A combination of software and hardware excels in isolating speech from unwanted background noise and interfering speakers, ensuring crystal-clear voice reception in even the noisiest environments.

  • Low Power Consumption: Reduced number of microphones and a highly efficient algorithm deliver superior performance without draining battery

  • Low Processing Resources Required: Runs on resource constrained DSPs, providing flexibility in chip selection for the device manufacturers. Readily available for ARM, Cadence, Qualcomm, and other leading DSPs.

  • Low Latency Processing: Surpasses even the most stringent latency requirements for real-time processing

  • Seamless Integration: Designed with flexibility in mind, OmniSpeech and Soundskrit technologies can be easily integrated into existing or next-gen edge devices 

  • Flexible configurations: Single and multi-microphone designs available based on end product requirements


Revolutionary AI Noise Suppression Paired with the Best-In-Class MEMS Microphones:


"We’ve been extremely impressed with the audio quality results when combining Soundskrit’s directional dipole microphones with OmniSpeech’s latest AI noise suppression algorithms. This combination gives edge device manufactures an ideal solution for high performing audio on small footprint edge devices." 


David Przygoda | CEO, OmniSpeech


"The best audio performance is going to come from a combination of innovations in both hardware and software. OmniSpeech is able to eliminate a tremendous amount of background noise very efficiently. By providing their algorithms with a cleaner input from our directional microphones, the two technologies stack up on one another to provide an overall great listening experience.  "
