Technology Record - Issue 27: Winter 2022

85 our technology helps users concentrate while protecting their hearing. The technology creates an augmented and immersive audio experience that makes the user feel as though they are speaking to someone face-to-face, no matter where they are. What’s more, users can listen to their teammates or keep an ear out for announcements without removing the headset. For more focus, users can also block out background noise with ease, allowing their own performance and energy levels rise. EPOS Voice improves speech intelligibility and enables better conversations by creating an acoustic lens that focuses speech. By removing remaining noise disturbances, it ensures a more natural reproduction of the human voice. It also recognises and removes background noise to ensure users can be heard wherever they are, creating the ultimate audio experience. At EPOS, we just don’t talk about using these technologies; we know how to bring them into the real world. In conjunction with Microsoft, EPOS brought to market the first edge AI-based headset in the unified communications space – EPOS ADAPT 660. EPOS technology is not limited to headsets, though. Our research and development team continues to use technology to perfect the audio experience in the hybrid environment. For example, in partnership with Microsoft, EPOS has developed premium speakerphones and video conferencing solutions that are certified for Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows and Android. Whether it’s for a huddle or a small, medium or large meeting room, EPOS brings its technologies into all Microsoft Teamscertified products. Joe Debold is vice president of sales at EPOS
