DSP Group's CleaRtalk Enhances Speech Clarity for Improved Comprehension and Attentiveness
SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan 4, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- DSP Group, Inc.(TM) (Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications at home, announced today the availability of CleaRtalk(TM), voice processing capabilities which dramatically improve user comprehension and attentiveness. CleaRtalk enhances communications effectiveness for both callers and called parties while conversing using corded, cordless and IP phones.

CleaRtalk includes specialized algorithms designed to make speech clearer and more audible. The WideBand Voice Synthesis (WBS) algorithm makes audio more natural and understandable, closely resembling the live human voice. Hearing and comprehension are also enhanced by DSP Group's new Flexible Noise Reduction (FNR) algorithm that reduces background noise including noise from cars, trains, and the wind for both the caller and called parties.

Another major addition is the new Flexible Listening Enhancement (FLE) algorithm which dynamically adjusts the volume of ring tones and listening voice levels relative to the ambient background noise, so calls are not missed and speech is always audible.

As part of the CleaRtalk family of algorithms, DSP Group also enhanced its high-quality full-duplex speakerphone performance to conform to the advanced CAT-iq and high-end VoIP telephony roadmap. The Enhanced Acoustical Echo Canceller (E-AEC) supports true wideband voice and provides additional noise reduction, filtering and equalization capabilities for keeping the best audio quality during hands-free conversations.

"We are pleased to deliver a superior listening user experience to our customers and their consumers," said Oz Zimerman, Corporate VP Marketing of DSP Group. "With our new offering we are reaching the highest standards of audio quality, which will bring unique value to the home and office telephony market."
