ArkX Laboratories Adds MYDO CO. of Japan to Global Distribution and Sales Network for EveryWord™ Touchless Voice Technology Solutions
ArkX Laboratories, a leading provider of advanced far-field voice capture and speech recognition technology, has added MYDO CO., LTD to its expanded global distribution and sales network as the exclusive representative for its portfolio of production-ready EveryWord™ touchless voice solutions in the Japanese Market.
“We are excited to welcome MYDO to the ArkX sales team”, said Tom Huffman, VP Channel Sales for ArkX Labs. “With MyDO’s entrepreneurial culture, deep technical expertise and experienced management team, they are an ideal partner for our advance voice capture and control product line.”
“MYDO is pleased to join ArkX Labs in representing their EveryWord portfolio of Advanced Far-Field Voice Capture and Control Solutions in Japan” said Jiro Tamura, President of MYDO CO., LTD. “Their advanced far-field voice technology is a critical and synergistic addition to our line-card focused on the voice experience.”
Featuring Cirrus Logic’s SoundClear™ FlexArray™ and Sensory technologies, the EveryWord™ portfolio includes an Audio Front End (AFE) Module, a Voice Module (System-on-Module + AFE), Development Kit, and Software Stack. ArkX’s production-ready voice capture solutions outperform other existing solutions in far-field voice capture and deliver a far-superior voice experience to consumers by capturing voice commands from three times the standard distance, around corners, in noisy and reflective environments, and without lowering playback volume. Additionally, EveryWord™ technology provides a unique ability to identify and suppress speech from T.V. or other single-point noise sources.
EveryWord™ technology does not require source-ducking for reliable interaction, provides linear, circular, square, triangular, or 3-D 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 (unlike others’ linear beam-forming approach) enables fewer blind spots and increased performance while incorporating fewer redundant microphone arrays for coverage.
All ArkX solutions 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 various products, including speakers, soundbars, televisions, appliances, voice controllers, and gadgets. The modules can be installed in hubs, ceilings, and in-wall for smart home or office applications.
