AuViD Graphical Design Tool
Visual Design Tool Facilitates Tuning for Audience Voice Processors
AuViD from Audience is a graphical design tool for mobile equipment manufacturers to support the design-in and integration process for the company’s range of voice processors. The visually-guided tool allows handset manufacturers to easily and efficiently tune the audio features of the Audience voice processors to customize the voice and multimedia capabilities for individual handset models and other personal computing devices.
Featuring easy-to-use graphical user interfaces, the AuViD tool is designed to simplify the process for tuning the voice and audio features of the Audience voice processor during product development. With intuitive step-by-step direction, incorporating easy-to-understand visual components, AuVid tool allows audio engineers to more easily optimize the voice/audio experience during the handset design phase. With faster, easier design-in, the AuViD tool also helps speed time-to-market for new products.
For handset manufacturers, the AuViD tool enables audio engineers to efficiently work through the tuning processes, and minimizes the need for outside support. It also manages the sending and receiving of application programming interface (API) commands to optimize the Audience voice processor to meet design specifications. AuViD specifically provides audio engineers with processes to:
Program analog and digital gains in the audio path
Enable and tune different filters such as post-equalization (PostEQ), multi-band compander (MBC), side-tone equalization (SideTone EQ), and parametric EQ
Enable and disable features such as noise suppression, voice processing, and acoustic echo cancellation (AEC)
Quickly download binary images
Create and execute API macro files
PC-compatible: with Windows® XP and Windows® 7 operating systems
Home screen with visual representation of the audio paths
Each module on the home screen provides visual representation of the key building blocks in the transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx) audio paths, as implemented in Audience voice processors. This feature makes the tool very intuitive to use.
