The Expansion of the AX Portfolio
Signia CEU courses
Presented by Jennifer Gehlen, AuD, Lisa Klop, AuD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37258Level: Introductory1 Hour
The Augmented Xperience (AX) platform with Augmented Focus separates the target speech signal from the surrounding signals at the input stage, then processes the two signals separately in two different processors. The separate processing creates a clear acoustic contrast between the focus area and the surrounding area and results in clearer speech and ambient noise that is not intrusive. This webinar will discuss expansions to the AX portfolio, with more form factors to match the individual needs of the wearer.
