  • Publication number: 20210084410
    Abstract: A microphone array device including microphone capsules and at least one processing unit configured to receive output signals of the microphone capsules, dynamically steer an audio beam based on the received output signal of the microphone capsules, and generate and provide an audio output signal based on the received output signal of the microphone capsules. The processing unit is configured to operate in a dynamic beam mode where at least one focused audio beam is formed that points towards a detected audio source and in a default beam mode where a broader audio beam is formed that covers substantially a default detection area. The microphone array may be incorporated into a conference system.

  • Publication number: 20200208116
    Abstract: The invention provides for methods of differentiating pancreatic endocrine cells into pancreatic beta cells expressing PDX1, NKX6.1, MAFA, UCN3 and SLC2A. These pancreatic beta cells may be obtained by step-wise differentiation of pluripotent stem cells. The pancreatic beta cells exhibit glucose-dependent mitochondrial respiration and glucose-stimulated insulin secretion similar to islet cells.

  • Patent number: 9756441
    Abstract: A digital audio transmission system, in particular a wireless microphone or wireless pocket transmitter system. The audio transmission system has at least one wireless transmitter and at least one wireless receiver. The wireless transmitter has an analog input, a digitally adjustable input potentiometer for adjusting the input gain, an analog/digital converter for converting the analog signals into digital signals, a digital signal processing unit for performing digital signal processing, and a digital or a digitally adjustable output potentiometer for adjusting the output gain. The digital signal processing unit is adapted to adjust the gain of the digital input potentiometer and/or the digital output potentiometer in such a way that the dynamic range of the analog/digital converter is optimally utilized.
