Kane Computing Unveils RealDuplex Hands-Free Speakerphone Software

7/30/2003 - Kane Computing Ltd introduces RealDuplex Hands-Free Software to the UK. Designed by Spirit Corp it provides core functionality for rapid development of popular hands-free speakerphone devices.

Due to the unique algorithms used this solution provides superb echo cancellation in all environments, allowing users to enjoy reliable full-duplex conversation. The software supports advanced echo suppression functionality in speakerphone mode and significantly shortens development time by including all the building blocks necessary for designing full-duplex hands-free speakerphone devices.

RealDuplex Hands-Free building blocks are managed by a control software module through a simple convenient interface and comprise advanced Acoustic Echo Cancelling, Line Echo Cancelling, Telephony Signalling and Interpolator functionality which provides seamless synchronisation between codecs.

"Having all the underlying technology building blocks developed in house, we are proud to provide the complete software package, that delivers enhanced speech quality and enables manufacturers to significantly reduce their time-to-market and development costs" - said Spirit's CEO, Andrew Sviridenko.

"The solution has given us a competitive edge, as it provides the core functionality for a range of up-to-date telephony applications that has not been supported in the market up to now; as well as delivering optimal performance, compared to alternative solutions".

Development cost reduction compared to alternative full-duplex solutions can be attributed to shortened development time, high integration and advanced process technology. Reducing the component cost enables system designers to implement new performance-enhancing features required by emerging telephony applications, while achieving high speakerphone speech quality and the cost ratios required by consumers.

Spirit's RealDuplex Hands-Free Solution is available now in the form of object codes for TI's TMS320C54x, C54CST and C55x DSPs.
