ArkX Laboratories, a leading provider of advanced far-field voice-capture technology for voice-enabled devices and products, has appointed LENA LTD as a key distributor forits EveryWord™ portfolio of voice solutions in the Asia-Pacific market, including Hong Kong, Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Chengdu and Taiwan.
“Our partnership with LENA is a key component of our strategy as we continue to build out a world-class global sales and distribution network for our ground-breaking voice solutions,” said Eric Bauswell, CEO of ArkX Labs. “Their experience, expertise, and support structure provide the perfect fit to help us expand our reach to this important and growing market.”
EveryWord’s advanced audio and voice technology enables enhanced human-to-human and human-to-machine speech recognition and superior performance for OEMs and start-ups who want to bring their voice-enabled smart products and devices to market. ArkX solutions are production-ready and pre-qualified by Amazon Voice Service (AVS) to mitigate risk, reduce development costs and accelerate time-to-market.

Additionally, EveryWord technology provides the unique ability to identify and suppress speech from TV or other single-point noise sources.”
