Voice-Tracking Array Microphone

Voice-Tracking Array Microphone

The AM100 Array Microphone has 8 microphones electronically configured in an array that is only 18 inches long. It has been specially designed for voice-controlled home automation. It allows you to walk around the room and speak to your home automation system in a normal voice while canceling out background noise from television or radio. The microphone works equally well in home automation applications and desktop computer command and control. The microphone array will track your voice any where in the room. At the same time, it has special noise canceling circuitry that eliminates background noise. This improves overall signal quality and offers superior speech recognition.

The Voice-Tracking Array Microphone is built from a string of microphones that are connected together through sophisticated signal processing circuitry that adds up the speech component from each microphone while canceling the noise component. The Voice-Tracking locates the talker and electronically listens only to that location, even if it is significantly off axis. The microphone can focus very tightly on the talker, spatially filtering noise from other sources. The higher signal to noise ratio that results also enables the talker to be farther away from the microphone, than with a single microphone.

The AM100 has superior Speech Recognition for:

  • Command and control of computers and PDAs in noisy environments.
  • Dictation of documents without a headset.
  • Teleconferencing with the microphone located at one end of the conference room, on the monitor, or on the ceiling.
  • Hands-free digital recording with your computer or handheld recorders.
  • Long range. It is no longer necessary to sit rigidly in front of the microphone. The user is free to lean backwards, sideways, or even move around.
  • Quick, effiicent tracking as you walk around the room.
  • Several talkers can be scattered around the room and the Array Microphone will rapidly steer to the speaker with headset-like performance.

The AM100 Voice-Tracking Array Microphone employs Location Dependent Squelch (LDS™, Patent Pending) which de-sensitizes the microphone to unwanted sounds coming from directions outside its field of view.

  • Automatic electronic steering of "listening beam" to the talker's location.
  • Selectable steering limits (90 degrees and 180 degrees) for teleconferencing modes.
  • Selectable reduction of annoying interference of additional talkers during speech recognition or feedback during teleconferencing.
  • Two stage noise reduction (spatial filtering and noise reduction processing).
  • Microphone tilt capability to facilitate desktop, monitor top, ceiling, or wall mountingoice Tracker™ Features.
