Flexbeam™ is a brand-new adaptive beam-forming technology that can provide flexible directional control for a compact microphone array based on the DiMAGIC Corp Virtualizer X (DVX) technology. From sophisticated stereo recording to high directivity audio recognition, Flexbeam represents the latest in directional control methods using a built-in stereo microphone. The software has been optimized to leverage the performance and flexibility advantages of the CEVA-TeakLite family, allowing SoC developers to easily add high-quality microphone functions into their existing designs. For licensees of the CEVA-TeakLite-III and CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSPs, the DiMAGIC Corp software can further harness the low power and native 32-bit high performance voice capabilities to enable better sound quality and extended battery life, delivering highly accurate sound reproduction capabilities for mobile devices that rivals traditional high-end professional systems.

"DiMAGIC Corporation Ltd. has established a strong track record in consumer and automotive applications through its offering of very high quality, multi-channel voice enhancement capabilities. By integrating this technology tightly with the CEVA-TeakLite family of DSPs, product developers can quickly incorporate advanced microphone features into their products with lower costs and lower risk," said Eran Briman, vice president of marketing at CEVA.

"We are continually seeing requirements for ever more sophisticated sound capture technology, particularly in noisy environments like in-car infotainment systems. In order to address this, more powerful DSP capabilities are required to efficiently implement and run our audio technologies. CEVA's proven expertise and advantages in audio and voice processing platforms with its CEVA-TeakLite family are well known in the industry, and together we are able to offer a solution that is easy to implement, flexible and meets demanding cost, size and power requirements of these next-generation products," said Hareo Hamada, Executive Chairman at DiMAGIC Corporation Ltd.
