Raising your voice

Ensuring conversations are clear and natural is key to letting people convey the most subtle of emotions. NXP Software will demonstrate how LifeVibes VoiceExperience noise suppression and beam forming algorithms suppress ambient noise and focus on the person talking to enable people to hear each other clearly. Even when there are multiple people on a call, beam forming enables the mobile device to identify between them and raise the voice of the person currently talking. 

Me in control 

Voice commands are the most natural way to interact with a mobile device, but background noise can make it difficult for devices to 'hear' the commands. A voice-controlled game demonstration illustrates how acoustic echo cancellation gives you full control as your commands are unaffected by the game's noise and sound effects. In a similar way, such echo cancellation is vital to ensuring clear conversations, especially in speakerphone mode, by suppressing unwanted echoes from the speaker. 

You sound so close 

As wideband voice calls ('HD Voice') become more common, the difference in quality with traditional narrowband calls can be startling. Ensuring consumers always receive a wideband experience, the latest LifeVibes VoiceExperience software automatically extends the bandwidth of narrowband calls to make any call sound as if it is on a HD Voice network. Visitors to the NXP Software stand can listen to a number of voice samples from narrowband to full HD and discover how close people sound when making higher bandwidth calls. 

Sense your scene

Live your life to the fullest with help of your personal smart device, which supports you on your day-to-day decisions, for example when using Google Now. LifeVibes solutions always sense where you are and what is said, improving the context awareness for various use cases.

Creating the best together

At MWC, NXP Software will show exciting new use cases for tomorrow's smart devices, bringing value to the entire mobile ecosystem through consumer research, a variety of partnerships and strong customer relations. 

"You will be amazed what tomorrow's smart devices can do for you; for example with fullband calling and a voice UI your device is already smarter than ever," says Edwin Zuidema, Marketing Director NXP Software, "And LifeVibes speech and sensing solutions will make your devices even more human, more you!"
