Our client has developed a digital signal processing algorithm and system that effectively removes undesired audio from television programming.
- Rather than simply filtering the audio signal, the algorithm is able to identify the specific components of the offending audio signal and dramatically attenuate it.
- This leaves the remaining audio signal, including dialogue, sound effects, and other desirable information, essentially unchanged.
- Many people have difficulty understanding the audio during television viewing.
- Often, the “background” music, “emphatic” effects, or “laugh track” make it difficult to hear the dialogue and other sounds present in a show.
- Audiences currently do not have an effective way to avoid these audio effects in their favorite shows unless they simply elect not to watch them.
- Our client’s algorithm may be deployed in several ways, including in provider-side and client-side devices.
- The algorithm has been developed, tuned, and validated in a software environment.
- Proof of concept has been established, and the algorithm is ready to deploy in various commercial hardware / software environment.
- The algorithm and associated technology are protected by a granted U.S. patent.
- Our client aims to partner with organizations interested in supporting the continued development and commercialization of their audio processing algorithms.
- Our client is also interested in further developing their core technology in order to intelligently enhance or attenuate other components of audio signals in A/V content.
- Partners are being sought with major market share in their respective segment in the United States.
- Our client is willing to remain involved in the development process, if desired, and is available for consultancy to support the commercialization of this and other applications of the algorithm.
