Samsung GALAXY series
NXP Software deployed LifeVibes VoiceExperience software solutions on various smartphones in the Samsung GALAXY series. The latest Samsung Galaxy S5 features a high-quality speakerphone mode using NXP Software’s LifeVibes VoiceExperience 4.0 to suppress background noise and to enable full-duplex conversations in both normal calls (circuit switched GSM and VoLTE) as well as OTT VoIP services such as the pre-loaded Samsung ChatON Voice and Video Chat.
Another example is the seamless integration of LifeVibes VoiceExperience in the Samsung GALAXY Note II for the Korean market with the Qualcomm MDM9615 LTE modem. LifeVibes VoiceExperience is fully API compatible with the Qualcomm QDSP Elite framework. This allows Samsung to integrate the software without having to make any changes to the framework, therefore enabling a short time to market.
Benchmark tests carried out by Samsung showed that LifeVibes VoiceExperience delivers a superior performance compared to competing solutions. The improvement is particularly noticeable when calling with wideband mode (known as HD Voice), as well as in speakerphone mode. A good, full-duplex speakerphone performance is especially difficult to achieve, as the loudspeaker volume is high and strong echoes are typically present.
LifeVibes VoiceExperience enables natural, comfortable communication over phone networks and IP-based channels such as Skype and Google Talk. It improves the intelligibility of speech, eliminates echo and distortion, and minimizes stationary and non-stationary background noise (such as traffic or crowds). VoiceExperience software is available on all the popular hardware and software platforms, and uses the same proven engine for voice calls, video telephony and VoIP, and is HD Voice compatible. joining the Qualcomm *Hexagon Access Program, NXP Software brings an extensive set of market-proven products to the latest Snapdragon platform. Deployed in nearly two billion devices, LifeVibes products offer fast time-to-market and measurably superior quality, backed by worldwide support. By optimizing NXP Software’s algorithms for the Hexagon DSP, we are integrating computationally intensive multimedia processing in the most suitable location in the system. This leads to lower overall power consumption, enabling device makers to offer consumers exciting and distinctive features with less battery recharging.
