sonoware: boost your voice in noisy places

The exhibit will be displayed at the CAU booth C07 in hall 2 for the whole fair week. On thursday, April 26 at 11:30 am Stephan Senkbeil will present sonoware at the CAU booth.


For the first time, sonoware will publicly present a generic, scalable system to support voice communication in noisy environments. For this purpose, the various voices are captured via microphones and subsequently amplified through speakers close to the audience. Innovative signal processing ensures that disturbing feedback and background noise are eliminated, so that only the voices of the people speaking are played back.

In addition, sonoware will present an example of optimal voice recording in acoustically badly-disrupted environments, to make this speech signal available to further applications, such as communication systems, hands-free systems or speech recognition. This utilises numerous innovative technologies for adaptive combination of several microphones (beamforming) as well as adaptive noise compensation.
