Voice Technology Company ArkX Laboratories Inks European Sales Agreement With Redtree Solutions

Share

ArkX Laboratories, a leading provider of advanced far-field voice-capture technology, has appointed Redtree Solutions, the largest Pan-European electronic representative in the semiconductor industry, as the exclusive sales representative for its production-ready EveryWord™ voice solution in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) marketplace.

This announcement coincides with growing demand from Fortune 1000 companies, OEMs, and start-ups in the region who want to bring their voice-enabled smart products and devices to market. The EveryWord™ portfolio offers a production-ready path that delivers an unmatched voice experience while mitigating risk, reducing development costs, and accelerating their time-to-market.

Featuring Cirrus Logic's SoundClear™ and FlexArray™ technologies, ArkX's advanced line of production-ready voice capture solutions outperform other existing solutions in far-field voice capture and deliver a far-superior voice experience to consumers. The products 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 a wide range of products, including speakers, soundbars, televisions, appliances, voice controllers, and gadgets. For smart home applications, the modules can be installed in hubs, ceilings, and in-wall.

"The ArkX EveryWord portfolio solves the toughest problems facing innovative OEMs today, including capturing voice at a greater distance, around corners, in the presence of blaring TV, and other noisy and reverberative environments without having to lower playback volume," said ArkX CEO Eric Bauswell. "EveryWord truly outperforms the performance of standard far-field voice solutions by so large a margin that consumers will never want to go back to the 'old' technology."

Covering 19 countries with more than 500 active customers, Redtree will help accelerate ArkX Labs' market penetration in the region by generating greater awareness of the company's solutions and providing on-the-ground support to ArkX Labs' expanding customer base.

"We were impressed with the innovation and superior far-field performance of the EveryWord™ solutions. It's a huge leap forward and certainly the best far-field solutions ever seen on the marketplace over our 10+ years' experience in this segment," said Steve Judge, Redtree Solutions Managing Director. "The addition of ArkX's EveryWord™ voice solutions represent a strategic addition to our electronic component portfolio that will have appeal to many of our customers operating in the smart home, broadband telecom, consumer, robotic, automotive, and industrial marketplaces."

ArkX Executive Vice President Michael Lang added, "Redtree's experience, expertise, and support structure provides the perfect fit to help us expand our reach beyond existing North American and Asian markets."

The portfolio includes the EveryWord™ Audio Front End (AFE) Module, EveryWord™ Voice Module (System-on-Module + AFE), EveryWord™ Development Kit, and EveryWord™ Software Stack.

The product line offers clear performance advantages for capturing voice commands from three times the standard distance, around corners, noisy and reflective environments, and without lowering playback volume. Additionally, EveryWord™ technology provides a unique ability to identify and to suppress speech from TV or other single-point noise sources.

EveryWord™ technology does not require source-ducking for reliable interaction, provides linear, circular, square, triangular, or 3D 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 versus other linear beam-forming approaches enables fewer blind spots and increased performance while incorporating fewer redundant microphone arrays for coverage.

Sumitomo SHI FW fluidized bed technology – upscaling thermochemical energy storage to a commercial level1.12.2020 19:47:00 EETPress release

One of the largest obstacles in using renewable energy efficiently is the possibility to store energy on a large scale. SaltX Technology AB has partnered with Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) to solve this in terms of heat energy. "The storage solution is like a "salt battery". It is based on a basic chemical process with a very common material, calcium oxide produced from limestone, with enhanced properties by our nanocoating process", explains Carl-Johan Linér, CEO of SaltX. Simplified, when calcium oxide reacts with water, it turns into calcium hydroxide and releases heat. Respectively, when calcium hydroxide is dried, it absorbs heat. SFW has designed a fluidized bed pilot reactor, which serves as the point of discharge, where the salt releases the heat. The new 100 kW reactor in SaltX's new testing installation in Sweden, near Stockholm, combines the performance of SaltX's patented nanocoated salt with SFW's fluidized bed technology. "SFW's technology has huge potential to take the salt batt

PierianDx Announces Expanded Partnership with Illumina to Support Cancer Genomic Reporting in Global Markets1.12.2020 19:00:00 EETPress release

PierianDx, the leading clinical genomics informatics company, today announced an expanded partnership with Illumina to enable PierianDx genomic reporting solutions for use with AmpliSeq™ for Illumina ® Focus Panel, AmpliSeq™ for Illumina ® Myeloid Panel and the TruSight™ Hereditary Cancer Panel. Adding these panels expands the existing relationship between Illumina and PierianDx, which currently covers use of the PierianDx platform to support genomic reporting in key global markets for the TruSight Oncology 500 portfolio. Performing a comprehensive NGS test and delivering an accompanying genomic report were once only accomplished via a send-out test to a commercial lab. However, in performing tests as send-outs, healthcare organizations relinquish control over samples, turnaround time, and quality. The PierianDx platform enables healthcare organizations to accelerate their precision medicine programs by empowering them to create accurate, timely, and comprehensive clinical genomic repo

Rhizen Pharmaceuticals Announces US FDA Acceptance of its IND Application for RP7214 in SARS-CoV-2 Infection; Phase 1 Clinical Trial of RP7214 Set to Begin Early December 20201.12.2020 18:01:00 EETPress release

Rhizen Pharmaceuticals, a clinical-stage oncology-focussed biopharmaceutical company, today announced the approval of its Investigational New Drug (IND) application by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to study its oral DHODH inhibitor for SARS-CoV-2 infection. The company announced that initial study shall evaluate single ascending doses of RP7214 in healthy volunteers and that dosing is expected to commence in early December 2020. The company also announces positive feedback from the FDA during its pre-IND discussion on its plans to follow-up this study with a multiple-ascending dose study in Covid-19 patients. Dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHOHD) is a key enzyme involved in pyrimidine biosynthesis in the cell. RP7214 is potentially a best-in-class selective DHODH inhibitor that has shown potent inhibition of Covid-19 viral replication. RP7214 has also been studied extensively across multiple inflammation models where it has demonstrated excellent anti-inflammatory activity
