ForteVoice Improves Smartphone Voice Quality and Enhances User Experience

Sunnyvale, CA. (May 15, 2014) - Fortemedia Inc. (, the world leader in voice processing technologies, today announced that Huawei has chosen Fortemedia’s ForteVoice to provide the best sounding call quality for its flagship smartphone, Ascend P7, that was recently launched in the European and Asian market.

Unlike traditional stand-alone DSP solutions commonly used in many high-end smartphones, Fortemedia’s ForteVoice runs on HiSilicon’s processor core, allowing leading edge voice processing performance to be provided at the lowest cost and power consumption. The ForteVoice combines advanced voice-tracking and beam-forming, as well as a speech feature extraction, to outperform competing solutions on both incoming and outgoing calls. The dual-microphone advanced processing provides echo-free, noise-free and wide-angle voice pickup on the outgoing voice, whether it’s being used in hands-free or hand-held modes.

“Fortemedia’s ForteVoice solution works great with the HiSilicon DSP core that provides the optimum solution needed for our high-end products,” said Dr. Fang-Ching Lee, Audio & Acoustic Global Leader. “With the outstanding technical support team working diligently with our engineers, I believe we will have more products using Fortemedia’s technologies in the future.”

“Huawei develops some of the most outstanding smartphone products in the industry,” said Dr. Paul Huang, chairman and CEO of Fortemedia. “We appreciate all the support provided by Huawei and its outstanding engineers, and we believe this will be a long term relationship between the two companies.”

ForteVoice is now available with Qualcomm’s DSP, Wolfson, Realtek and Yamaha audio codec. For more information, please contact Fortemedia at
