How can audio companies survive if consumers expect every speaker to be smart?

Smartspeakers such as the Amazon Echo and Google Home have caught on at a pace rarely seen in the history of tech. Sales of the Echo were seven times higher on Amazon’s 2017 Prime Day Sales than they were for the same event last year (1), and the company is expected to sell 10 million Echo products (including the Echo Dot and Echo Show) in 2017 (2). Not since the iPod has an audio product captured so much attention from average consumers.

How Audio Can Add a “Second Sense” to Security Cameras

IP technology is radically expanding the home security business. In a report titled “360 View: Residential Security and Smart Home,” market research firm Parks Associates found that nearly 20 percent of U.S. broadband households plan to acquire a networked security camera in the next 12 months. That suggests annual sales of roughly 16.7 million IP-enabled security cameras. Clearly, consumers appreciate what IP brings to home security.

Smart phone makers see the importance of quality sound to consumers

Samsung is placing emphasis on their sound and acting more like a HiFi product maker.  For years, smartphone makers don't understand the importance of tuning by golden ears.  Much of the sound have only be created by engineers by looking at SNR and chart graphs.  But the importance of psychoacoustics have often been ignored.  Until now...  http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/tech/2015/04/133_178080.html

Audio Weaver Highligted in EE Journal

Byron Moyer wrote this fabulous article on creating microphone processing easily using Audio Weaver.  The complexity of systems using multiple mics require an easy way to tune and shorten the iteration cycle on microphone algorithms.  Unlike playback speaker algorithms, microphone algorithms are a lot harder due to the very several unpredictable conditions that a microphone is subjected to.
