MONTREAL -- OCTASIC Inc., a member of the ARM Connected Community, today announced its new ARM926EJ-S-based SoftEcho. The readily portable echo cancellation software solution is for end-user devices, like desktop speaker phones, IP and soft phones, car hands-free communication systems and IP PBXs.

“Octasic is very pleased that our SoftEcho product runs on an ARM processor. We are sure developers will find it very easy to integrate and accordingly will benefit from a quick time-to-market” says Frédéric Bourget, Octasic’s Director of Product Management. “Octasic is known for its innovative products that provide superior sound quality. Our SoftEcho offers high-performance acoustic and line echo cancellation which include high-quality noise matching, fast convergence, transparency, and excellent double-talk handling.”

With Octasic’s SoftEcho technology, designers are unburdened by the design of complex echo cancellation solutions: they can leverage Octasic’s sound quality expertise and focus on their own value-add to create a strategically enhanced solution.

“ARM welcomes Octasic’s release of SoftEcho said Ian Thornton, Director of Solutions Marketing for ARM. “As a member of the Connected Community, Octasic increases the growing products and services that are centred around the ARM architecture and currently available to developers worldwide.”
