Extreme Noisy Environments
- On November 19, 2016
Following our last post on the profile-based noise reduction technology, in this post we would like to cover few environments that suffer from extreme ambient noise. In these environments, many existing technologies are used to minimize the ambient noise. Unfortunately this is not enough and the output usually suffers from significant residual ambient noise which can be easily addressed by the profile-based noise reduction.
Construction sites are one of the noisiest civilian sites. When a person is making a call from a construction site, most chances are that the far-end will be annoyed and disturbed by the overwhelming ambient noise.
Factories and manufacturing floor
Similar to construction sites, the ambient noise in these places is deafening and the workers usually use hearing protection devices. Unfortunately, the earplugs do not protect the far-end from hearing the ambient noise during a phone call.
On the field, emergency forces are usually located in very noisy environments. The profile-based noise reduction can be placed, for example, in the call centers to attenuate the noise that is coming from the field.
In addition to the civilian scenarios stated above, military forces are usually positioned in extremely noisy locations that make voice communication very difficult.
The profile-based noise reduction, being a flexible and robust technology, can be easily integrated in any of the above scenarios. The integration is simple and can be performed in any location along the audio-path. No matter which noise-reduction technology is being used today, the profile-based noise reduction can further improve the audio quality.
