DSP Concepts, whose Audio Weaver framework powers sound and voice for many of the world’s consumer and automotive brands announced it has added delResearch’s AirModem to the extensive Audio Weaver feature set. AirModem offers an alternative to Bluetooth and allows for two-way data transfer between phones, computers, and other IoT devices without the need for specialised hardware: just speakers and microphones.
AirModem packages years of sophisticated software research and development into a plug-and-play solution that can be added to any smart product design instantly with Audio Weaver.
“The AirModem solution shows the unique flexibility of the Audio Weaver framework,” said Chin Beckmann, CEO of DSP Concepts. “Now, any product maker can add a secure, low-cost alternative to Bluetooth or Wifi with just a drag-and-drop using the Audio Weaver graphical interface.
AirModem has been tested and proven to work in a variety of environments including noisy public spaces, making it a viable option for securely transmitting data even with external sound interference.
The use cases for AirModem include:
- Sharing WiFi passwords and securely bringing devices online
- Payment processing for brick-and-mortar retail transactions
- Broadcasting content to multiple devices from a single source based on proximity
- Extracting data from devices for diagnostics and inventory management
AirModem is compatible with any device that has a built-in microphone and speaker and requires no additional hardware components. This means product makers can easily build AirModem into a wide range of new smart devices and can retrofit existing products to activate its functionality.
“We are excited to introduce AirModem on the Audio Weaver framework to product makers across the globe,” said John DellaMorte, President of delResearch. “Many of the world’s most innovative brands use Audio Weaver to develop product-differentiating audio features, so we’re confident that partnering with DSP Concepts will lead to the adoption of AirModem across a wide range of product categories.”
