The Age of Voice Voice is evolving as an active partner in the security industry
We all are talking to machines these days. We talk to assistants in our home, in our cars and on our phones. By using our voice, we feel more engaged (Thanks to Alexa!). We also become more productive, freeing our hands and minds for other tasks.
At the same time we are communicating with the machines, we are teaching them about us. The more we engage the better they can assist and anticipate our needs.
Even at this stage in the technology, we still have our issues. The exceptional user experience is still wanting. Often it is due to the limitations of clarity that befuddles the machine and leads to multiple attempts by the user to communicate.
With all these issues, how is voice evolving to meet the needs of organizational security?
It turns out, there are very similar problems that have diluted voice’s promise.
Our patented Sonic Vortex technology combines proven design methods with what would traditionally be a very long port, and wraps it around the internal cavity of the enclosure. This produces amazing bass and effortless clarity in an integrated enclosure. It is literally a “twist” on ported transmission line design, which optimizes air movement to provide astonishing sound in a compact speakers.
Technology Integrator has announced its 2018 EXCITE - Excellence in Custom Installed Technologies and Electronics - award winners.
LRG is proud to congratulate Vanco International for being one of this year's honorees!
