Roadmap

 
 
  We've come a long way since 2002, continually advancing our technologies as a vital technology provider. Our commitment to delivering the best pre/post processing technologies for voice, hearing enhancement, and audio remains unwavering.  

 

 

A lot has transpired at Alango in recent years, but what lies ahead? In general, you can anticipate further advancements and innovations in classical and neural network digital signal processing, benefiting voice and audio quality across various settings, from home and office to travel and automotive. Our focus on hearing enhancement and personalization remains strong, and we're venturing into the realm of sound acquisition.

Planned upcoming developments will enhance device performance and user experiences as follows:

  • Headphones meeting the Teams Open Office standard without a microphone boom.
  • Bluetooth speakers offering deep audio personalization for every listener.
  • Speakerphones delivering exceptionally clear transmit call quality passing stringent standards from portable units to high-end conference room systems to ceiling-mic arrays.
  • Real-time processing for sound reinforcement and hearing aids, achieving almost zero processing delay resulting in super clear intelligibility.
  • Automotive transmit call quality akin to face-to-face conversations.
  • Automotive sound acquisition and direction detection to enhance driver safety.

This is just a glimpse of what's on the horizon, not even considering our continuously improving existing technologies.

While we can't predict the future, we're excited to plan for it together. Your feedback and insights are always invaluable to us.
