Sensory Brings Voice Activation to the Samsung Galaxy - "Hi Galaxy" 
Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Voice Control Continues to Differentiate in
Galaxy S3 
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/03/12 --    The new Galaxy
S(TM) III, unveiled today by Samsung, is the latest Galaxy device to
incorporate Sensory's TrulyHandsfree technology. Sensory's
TrulyHandsfree has now been integrated into three Samsung products:
the Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note(TM) and now the Galaxy S III. Sensory's
TrulyHandsfree enables users of these Samsung devices to activate and
access their device with the voice trigger phrase "Hi Galaxy."
Through voice activation users have the ability to access and run
applications such as voice-to-text, calling and music -- all without
touching their phone.  
Sensory, Inc., a developer of speech recognition, voice activation,
speaker verification and identification software and semiconductors,
developed the TrulyHandsfree technology to be the first always-on,
always listening voice control trigger that works. The technology is
robust enough to work in noisy environments, has a low risk of false
fires (won't make a call when you don't want it to) and has minimal
impact on battery life, making it the ideal voice activation solution
for mobile devices.  
"Sensory's TrulyHandsfree solution enables mobile devices to be safer
and more convenient to use," said Todd Mozer, CEO of Sensory.
"Samsung has been a pioneer in adopting this new approach to speech
technology which is really building momentum in the mobile market." 
"Voice activation is the last piece of the speech recognition puzzle
needed to deliver a 100 percent hands free device experience," said
Michael Morgan, mobile devices senior analyst with ABI Research.
"Sensory's TrulyHandsfree solution is the leader in bringing this
capability to iconic mobile devices such as the Samsung Galaxy II,
Note and III. The accuracy and low power consumption of Sensory's
solution in today's mobile devices will become a driving force in
making voice activation a must have feature across a vast array of
consumer electronics."  
Overview of Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Voice Control's Distinctive
Features: 
 Most Accurate Speech Activation 
 Accuracy concerns have
historically prevented mass adoption of voice trigger technology. The
risk of false fires must be eliminated so the device doesn't
mistakenly activate when human speech or other sounds are heard and
misrecognized as the trigger. Furthermore, performance should remain
reliable in the noisiest of environments like cars or crowded living
rooms. Sensory has perfected this highly noise tolerant approach, and
in a quiet environment the technology can even respond to commands
delivered as far as 20 feet away. 
Natural, Intuitive and Safe Voice User Interface 
 TrulyHandsfree can
be always-on and listening for dozens of keywords that will bring the
device to life to be controlled via further voice commands. These
keywords or phrases can be spoken in the middle of a sentence so
users are not confined to a forced dialogue. In this scenario,
consumers are communicating in a more human-like fashion, without the
distraction and inconvenience of button presses. With TrulyHandsfree
Voice Control, users are not required to hold the device to their
mouth to deliver commands.  
Unique Expertise to Deliver "Always-On," Low Power Hands-free
Experience
 Speech technology is experiencing dramatic growth due to
the rise of cloud computing and internet connected devices that
enable complex voice searches and text-to-speech for data retrieval.
Yet these server-based voice capabilities cannot be accessed truly
handsfree without a client-side, low power, voice trigger technology.
Certain use cases demand the safety and ease of button-less
activation. Sensory's low MIPS and low current consumption enable a
deeply embedded implementation to low power consumption in mobile and
other battery powered devices. This "deeply embedded" approach is
achieved by running below the OS layer on the lowest power hardware
within the mobile phone infrastructure.
