Airline delays and high fuel prices are boosting interest in video conferencing, but the technology still lacks the realism some users want. Polycom Inc. is addressing sound quality with its SoundStructure, an installed audio system that delivers remarkable sound clarity and full stereo echo cancellation ideal for conference rooms, classrooms, meetings and other environments.
SoundStructure applications use a host of DSP-intensive audio processing algorithms like acoustic echo cancellation, automatic gain control, dynamics processing, equalization, noise cancellation and audio mixing. Texas Instruments' TMS320C6727 DSP handles these tasks, with extra attention focused on noise cancellation and 22 kHz wide band stereo acoustic echo cancellation.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
