Tymphany and XMOS to Showcase New Soundbar with Alexa Built-In at IFA 2018

August 24 2018, 03:00
Tymphany and advanced embedded voice solutions specialist XMOS announced the latest project in building a new Amazon Alexa Built-In soundbar that will be demonstrated at Amazon’s exhibit at IFA in Berlin, 31 August to 5 September 2018. The global audio ODM company will show how the new soundbar combines its acoustic expertise to create an immersive audio experience, featuring XMOS' Vocal Fusion far-field voice processor.

The low-frequency bass extension powered by Tymphany’s patented, slim profile GBS subwoofers allows for smooth frequency response down to 50 Hz. Using Tymphany’s A113D SOM and XMOS’ XVF3500 stereo-AEC voice processor, the soundbar connects with the Amazon Alexa Voice Service (AVS) via WiFi and has an excellent far-field voice capture and barge-in performance from across the room – even when the Tymphany soundbar is playing content at high volume and the commands are spoken softly. The soundbar will include Amazon’s signature LED light ring response and buttons, as well as provide access to Amazon Prime Music and TuneIn support.

The project demonstrates how Tymphany’s extensive resources and global engineering team is able to leverage its expertise and excellent partnerships across the entire signal chain, enabling the company to deliver products that offer unique combinations of user experiences and features.

“We are extremely excited to introduce the Tymphany Alexa Built-In soundbar this year at IFA 2018. We are proud of our team’s efforts to realize this complex, groundbreaking and great performing soundbar reference design. We would not have been able to achieve this milestone without the awesome support of the Amazon Alexa Voice Service and XMOS development teams”, says Chris von Hellermann, Senior Director of Technology Management at Tymphany.

“We’re proud to have helped bring this project to life”, adds Mark Lippett, CEO of XMOS: “This new soundbar showcases the innovation, dedication and collaboration of the international partners involved.”

“Tymphany and XMOS have created a soundbar that enhances the listening experience by providing simple, hands-free interaction with Alexa,” states Priya Abani, Director of the Alexa Voice Service. “We’re excited to have a new solution that brings rich voice capabilities to our customers.”

The new soundbar can be seen and heard at the Amazon booth in Hall 26, booth 201 at IFA 2018, August 31 to September 5, in Berlin, Germany.
