ACOUSTIC MAGIC VOICE TRACKER 101

Unlike first generation array microphones which have a fixed "listen" direction, the Acoustic Magic Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone automatically locates and electronically steers toward the talker.

Freedom of Movement
For speech recognition applications, it is no longer necessary to sit rigidly in front of the microphone. The user is free to lean backwards, sideways, or even move around.
For teleconferencing applications, several talkers can take part since the Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone rapidly steers to the individual participants.

Headset-Like Performance
The Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone improves signal-to-noise ratios in two ways. First, its digital signal processor creates a listening beam (like a searchlight) that focuses on the talker and spatially filters noise from other directions. Second, its proprietary noise reduction algorithms filter out background noise and reverberations that are present in the acoustic environment.

Works at Long Range
The Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone contains the largest number of array elements available today, which, when combined with its two stage noise reduction algorithms, give it the longest effective range of any array microphone.

Easy to Use
Our patented steering technology employs digital electronics and proprietary embedded algorithms. There are no moving parts, so the Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone is rugged, reliable, and easy to use. Simply plug it into your computer's sound card and a wall outlet. No software needs to be loaded, and there is no drain on your computer's processing capacity.

Suppresses Interfering Sounds
The Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone is also the only array microphone to employ Location Dependent Squelch (LDS™, Patent Pending) which de-sensitizes the microphone to sounds coming from pre-selected directions. Consequently, the array can reduce unwanted sounds coming from directions outside its field of view.

FEATURES:
  • Automatic electronic steering of "listening beam" to talker location
  • Selectable steering limits (90 degrees and 180 degrees) for speech recognition and teleconferencing modes
  • Selectable LDS™ to reduce annoying interference of additional talkers during speech recognition or feedback during teleconferencing
  • Two stage noise reduction (spatial filtering and noise reduction processing)
  • 8 element, 18 inch long array for maximum range

  • ACOUSTIC MAGIC VOICE TRACKER 101 FAQs

    Why is the pickup from the Voice Tracker I on my Mac is so weak?
    Macs need line level audio input. The analog output of the Voice Trackers is mic level. Use the USB audio output that can be obtained through the USB adapter, VOICETRACKER 102, with the Voice Tracker I. USB audio works fine with Macs.

    Where is the best place in a room to set up a Voice Tracker microphone?
    the Voice Tracker I and II are more sensitive from the front than from the rear and sides. If placed on a podium, with the objective of picking up the speaker and members of the audience, the Voice Tracker should be placed facing toward the audience. If placed on a conference table, the Voice Tracker should be placed near the front of the table pointing towards the far end. The Voice Tracker should be placed far from any source of background noise such as a fan or AC. Although Voice Trackers filter out such background noise, if too loud, voices will sound as if underwater.

    Can the Voice Tracker 101 be mounted on the ceiling?
    Yes. The Voice Tracker 101 has a built-in ceiling mount. You simply need to remove the weight in the base, revealing four mounting holes. The Voice Tracker 101 is mounted upside down and swiveled to point towards the speakers.
