HSINCHU, Taiwan – March 10, 2022 – Realtek Semiconductor Corporation (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2379.TW), a world leading network and multimedia IC provider, today announced their latest AI audio/camera solutions, including: 360-degree target speaker detection and tracking AI algorithms, and a low-power AI camera chip (RTS3916/RTS3916N Series).
360-Degree Target Speaker Tracking AI Algorithms
Realtek launched a new generation of neural-network-based algorithms supporting 360-degree target speaker tracking. The AI algorithms not only support noise suppression of transient and static noise, but also detect and track the speaker. The AI algorithms allow the speaker to freely move about within a room. Wherever the speaker goes within the room, the tracking beam will follow, and the caller will not hear other voices or sounds within the speaker’s location.
Low-Power AI Camera Chip (RTS3916/RTS3916N Series)
Realtek's low-power AI camera chip solution provides 0.75 to 1.0 TOPs of computing power. Through the Edge AI algorithm, specific objects (such as human detection, face detection, vehicle detection, pet detection, package detection, gesture recognition, behavior gesture recognition, etc.) can be identified, with greatly reduced false positives, making it suitable for various smart product applications. Event triggered recording saves local storage space and does not require a cloud server to do AI image analysis and filtering, thereby speeding up the response time of event processing, and eliminating the construction cost of a cloud server, as well as providing a higher level of personal privacy.
In addition, the RTS3916 series provides high-performance ISP processing capabilities, adopts 3D noise reduction and wide dynamic technology, and offers excellent performance in low light and wide dynamic scenes. It can help design professional or consumer smart cameras, and USB applications such as USB smart TV CAM.
“Outstanding developments in Realtek AI technology have brought the future into the present”, said Yee-Wei Huang, Realtek's Vice President and Spokesman. “Our 360-degree target speaker tracking AI algorithm gives users the comfort of clean digital voice communication within crowded environments such as busy offices and noisy home environments. Our low-power AI camera chip provides excellent performance in a small footprint for a vast range of applications”.
