  • Publication number: 20190320276
    Abstract: An improved method and system for varying an amount of mechanical coupling in a speakerphone is disclosed. Solutions and implementations provided vary the amount of mechanical coupling between one or more speakers and one or more microphones of the speakerphone to generate high-quality sounds. Implementations include receiving a signal for a first speaker, transforming the signal to send to a second speaker or actuator to generate either complementary or opposing vibration forces to those generated by the first speaker, and an accelerometer to measure the amount of vibration caused by the speaker and adjust the transformation applied to the signal to increase or decrease the amount of mechanical coupling, as needed.

  • Publication number: 20190320277
    Abstract: An improved method and system for varying an amount of mechanical coupling in a speakerphone is disclosed. Solutions and implementations provided vary the amount of mechanical coupling between one or more speakers and one or more microphones of the speakerphone to generate high-quality sounds. Implementations include receiving an input signal, sending a copy of the input signal to a first speaker, performing a signal transformation on the input signal to produce a transformed input signal, and transmitting the transformed input signal to a second speaker, where the first speaker generates a first vibration force in response to the input signal, and the second speaker generates a second vibration force in response to the transformed input signal, the second vibration force being in an opposite direction to that of the first vibration force and offsetting at least part of the first vibration force.

  • Publication number: 20190068734
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software are disclosed herein for providing notifications on an external device. In an implementation, a computing apparatus comprises one or more computer readable storage media, a processing system operatively coupled with the one or more computer readable storage media, and program instructions stored on the one or more computer readable storage media for automatically joining a user to a conference session. The program instructions direct the processing system to detect an invocation of an application and, in response to detection of the invocation, send a context request to an external device. The program instructions further direct the processing system to receive from the external device a context response comprising a notification type, determine whether the notification type corresponds with a meeting type, and automatically join a user to the conference session within the application if the notification type corresponds with the meeting type.

  • Publication number: 20190068771
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software are disclosed herein for providing notifications on an external device. In an implementation, a communication endpoint comprises a communication system configured to communicate with a communication device, a microphone, a speaker, an indicator, a user interface, and a controller. The controller is programmed to receive a notification type from a conferencing client application running on the communication device via the communication system, control the indicator based on the notification type, and receive a user input via the user interface.

  • Publication number: 20180286431
    Abstract: Non-limiting examples of the present disclosure describe a human interface device (HID) communication protocol enabling communication between an application, executing on a host device and an accessory device. A connection with an accessory device may be detected through an application executing on a host device. A communication session with the accessory device may be established based on the detected connection. An exemplary communication session is established through an HID communication protocol that is configured to enable direct communication between the application and the accessory device. In one example, a control feature within the application may be toggled based on the established communication session with the accessory device. For instance, the control feature may be a voice activity detection feature. Other examples are also described including examples where an HID communication protocol is used for transmission of frame data between a host device and an accessory device.

  • Publication number: 20180285056
    Abstract: Non-limiting examples describe an accessory device that is configured to improve voice activity detection processing and communication with an application executing on a host device. A new configuration for an accessory device is disclosed herein that comprises a dual microphone array for enhanced voice activity detection processing. In an exemplary configuration, the accessory headset comprises a first boom and a second boom that each comprise at least one microphone, collectively forming a microphone array for capture of an audio signal. A voice activity detection state of the accessory device as well as voice activity detection processing results may be generated by the accessory device and transmitted to the application through a human interface device (HID) communication protocol, for example, that is used to initiate a communication session between the accessory device and an application executing on a host device. In one example, an accessory device is a headset device.
