Three and Four Microphone Solutions Provide Best Noise Suppression Results for 2 in 1 Ultrabook? Devices Held in Portrait and Landscape Orientation

Sunnyvale, CA. (September 5, 2013) – Today, Fortemedia Inc. (, the leader in voice processing technology, announced that it will present and showcase its latest voice processing solution at Intel’s IDF 2013 (Intel Developer Forum) convention to be held in San Francisco from September 10 to September 12. Fortemedia will showcase their SAMSoftTM iS620 solution for 2 in 1 Ultrabooks? and portable All-In-One devices with advanced features that enable three and four microphones to provide the best voice communication and voice recognition experience for users.

To improve the experience in voice communication and voice recognition, many of the latest ultrabooks have adopted two microphones that enable beam-forming to suppress surrounding noise; that makes communication and voice recognition possible at a busy workplace, restaurant or elsewhere. More recently, ultrabooks have evolved from a traditional clamshell approach to convertible or detachable modes to enable tablet use and mobility for users. Fortemedia worked closely with Intel to further enhance the voice processing experience for these products by adhering to Intel’s three and four microphone recommendations.

Fortemedia is one of the first companies to develop a solution that has been tested and proven to offer the best performance possible. Fortemedia will demonstrate these multi-microphone solutions at IDF next week. The four microphone solution adds a mic that faces away from the user and helps further reduce background noise.

“As a close partner of Intel, we are happy to be able to finalize these solutions that provide such excellent performance,” said Dr. Paul Huang, CEO and Chairman of Fortemedia Inc. “The three and four microphone solutions are proven to be very effective for noise suppression for the next generation 2-in-1 Ultrabooks? and portable All-In-One products.”

SAMSoft? iS620 is now available with selected customers. More than 100 million SAMSoftTM solutions have been shipped worldwide today with leading Notebook OEMs such as Lenovo and Acer.

Fortemedia will be presenting these solutions with Intel Acoustic experts at IDF. Fortemedia will also have demonstrations of the technology at their booth, 226, where they will be a general exhibitor.
