Soundscape, an iPhone/iPod-Touch app based on CYBIT technology, is now available at iTunes Store. More digital sound/music apps will follow.
AnyTune has been expanded to AnyTune/Voice Morphing. VM morphs any voice into the voice of a male, female, kid, robot, monster, cartoon character; plus slower voice, faster voice, and singing (spoken words mapped on select melody, such as a mother's loving words on Brahms' Lullaby).
CYBIT MusicTech technology family introduces AnyTune, a "talking karaoke" that converts spoken words into a song with accompaniment music.
CYBIT WideSound technology has attracted special interest from game chip developers for handheld game device applications. WideSound broadens the narrow sound field produced by any two closely-spaced loudspeakers to much wider sound field for significantly better stereophonic effect. WideSound is applicable to a wide range of speaker spacings, from very-narrow (e.g., 2cm center-to-center) for mobile phones to much larger for home TV.
CYBIT technologies were exhibited (with hardware and software demos) at the Embedded Systems Expo (ESEC) at Tokyo International Exhibition Center, Japan, May 13-15, 2009.
CYBIT digital speech compression technology was included in the GEN3 MVL Bluetooth project for Nissan Motor. The project will be implemented by Yanfeng Visteon Automotive Electronics (China), a joint venture with Visteon Corp. (USA).
Under a contract with SONY, Japan, CYBIT had successfully developed a new technology - Audio Pattern Matching for automatic audio quality (QC) control during mass production of Blu-ray disc players.
Based on TI DSP platform, CYBIT's chip solution with voice compression and channel error protecton has enabled customers to implement efficient wireless and secure voice communication systems. These customers include CESG (Switzerland), Enmac (UK), Microel (France), Osatu (Spain), and Codan (Australia) .
Teamed with Fonix and Seiko-Epson, CYBIT's voice compression technology (HCC-5) and Fonix's multi-lingual text-to-speech (TTS) technology (DECTalk) are now embedded in the products of several electronic dictionary manufacturers including Casio, Canon, Seiko Epson, Noah and others.
CYBIT's Music Beat Tracking technology/module was featured in the New Products section of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, March, 2005.
CYBIT's new technology, HCC/VX, for integrated voice compression and voice transformation, was featured in the New Products section of the IEEE Communications Magazine, Sept. 2003.
CYBIT's combined voice compression and voice changing, HCC/VX, offers low-data-rate voice coding; voice changing (among male, female, children and robot voices;) and speaking speed control. HCC/VX is useful for language learning devices, e-dictionary, toys, children books, text-to-speech, and many other applications.
CYBIT unveils MobiVoice, an attachement device for BlackBerry PDA for voice email and other functions.
CYBIT has collaborated with ASUSTek Computer (Taiwan) on a secure mobile phone. The mobile phone employs CYBIT proprietary technologies in digital speech compression and signal-dependent channel error protection, as well as robust data encryption algorithm to ensure absolute secure voice conversation.
CYBIT's Communication Voice Module for full-duplex narrow-band wireless communications was successfully field-tested by Chuang-Shan Science Institute (Taiwan) for secure communication application. The module features low-data-rate voice coders and robust channel error protection for up to 1% BER (bit error rate.)
CYBIT's digital voice and audio compression technologies have been embedded by almost all major audio chipmakers in Taiwan in their chips for digital audio storage and playback applications. These licensees include Sunplus Technologies, Sonix Technology, Elan Microelectronics, Sitronix Technology, Syntek Semiconductor, Macronix International, Winbond Electronics, King Billion Electronics, etc.
CYBIT's wideband speech coder, after rigorous subjective tests conducted by Dynastat, a world famous speech subjective testing house, won the Visteon/Ford Motor's open voice coder competition for in-vehicle applications.
