BlueAnt Wireless today announced that CES Las Vegas 2008 will be the launch-pad for its latest and most innovative Bluetooth Headset – the BlueAnt V1. The world’s first voice controlled Bluetooth headset
, the BlueAnt V1 is destined to appeal to those looking for something a little more sophisticated from their Bluetooth device. The BlueAnt V1 Voice Controlled Headset allows users to easily control most functions of their headset using the revolutionary ‘BlueGenie Voice Interface from Sensory, Inc. Talk to it – and it will talk to you. Ask it for assistance – and it will assist you in getting the right command. This headset eliminates the combinations of button pushes, button holds and flashing lights synonymous with advanced Bluetooth devices. One activation button provides you with total control of the V1’s entire function menu system via an easy to use voice interface.
The ‘BlueGenie Voice Interface uses advanced Voice Recognition and Voice Synthesis technology to allow users to easily control the functions of their headset using their voice rather than multiple button presses.
The V1 also incorporates dual microphones allowing for BlueAnt’s patented ‘Voice Isolation Technology™’, a revolutionary proprietary Digital Signal Processor (DSP) software solution. Voice Isolation Technology™ uses advanced techniques to separate the user’s voice signal from all other sounds, enhancing and isolating all frequencies that affect voices coming into and out of the headset resulting in outstanding environmental noise reduction, echo cancellation and wind noise protection.
Fitting into BlueAnt’s premium headset range, the V1 is small and lightweight and clips neatly onto a tie, shirt or jacket when not in use.
BlueAnt CEO, Taisen Maddern, says, "BlueAnt’s success is a result of development and focus that goes into every aspect of each of our products. We have used the BlueAnt Z9 as our foundation for the V1, and then taken our development process one step further. The products may look slightly similar but the technology is more advanced. It is a sophisticated product offering unlike any other headset that is currently on the market. The V1 will lead the way in Voice Controlled Headset technology providing consumers with the kind of functionality that they have been waiting for.”
