Introducing First Low-cost, Light-weight, and Portable USB Array Microphone for Consumer Market

FLORHAM PARK, NJ (Feb. 2, 2010) – Li Creative Technologies (LcT), Inc. is pleased to introduce CrispMic™, a highly directional, USB plug and play array microphone that provides crisp, clear, noise-reduced speech. CrispMic™ is the first low cost, light-weight, and portable array microphone with advanced digital signal processing for noise-free speech communications.

CrispMic™ is designed for optimal use with speech recognition software, Skype®, conference call software, and VoIP software. Advanced acoustic beam forming and noise reduction on its multiple microphones allow the user to capture clean speech signals regardless of their noisy background environment – at home, at work, or outdoors.

CrispMic™ represents the successful commercialization of SBIR-funded research. The technology behind the CrispMic was initially created by LcT for the US government to enhance military communications. Early versions of CrispMic™ were demonstrated at the 2008 and 2009 International CES to well-receptive audiences.
