Andrea Electronics launches PureAudio Center Channel Focus noise reduction audio filtering software
BOHEMIA, N.Y., April 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrea Electronics Corporation (OTCMKTS:ANDR) (Andrea), the pioneer of digital array microphones and noise reduction software that optimizes the performance of voice driven applications, announced today that it has developed a real time filter processing software for increasing the intelligibility of speech in streaming video feeds.
This new speech enhancement technology for broadcasting can also greatly improve the listening intelligibility for transcription services such as Closed Captioning (CC), perfect for content that is typically corrupted with crowd noise making transcription services more challenging and fatiguing to transcribers over time.

Andrea's Center Channel Focus is a new audio filter for the broadcast industry. This is an adaptive audio algorithm that cancels the stereo ambient sound mixed into the broadcast audio stream. This feature focuses and highlights the center channel voice audio for better intelligibility and listening to the speech content of the recording. PureAudio™ Noise Reduction and Center Channel Focus functions are perfect for editing mobile journalism interviews that take place in real world noisy environments
"This filter effortlessly isolates the spoken word from unwanted background noise and can instantly clean up voice recordings, interviews, or dialogue with a touch of a button. The best part is that there is no wasted time rendering and you can show your production team instant results without the need to sweeten in a mix session," said Matt Grzan, Director of Post Production for The Paramount Network – Viacom.
PureAudio's Adaptive Digital Noise Reduction Filter reduces up to -40dB of repetitive noises, while supporting wide frequency bandwidth sample rates of up to 48Khz. The variable control allows the user to select the level of noise cancellation for the desired amount to be applied to the embedded noisy segment and are ideal for use with professional video editing tools like Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC and Adobe Audition® CC., part of the Adobe Creative Cloud.
"Andrea's Center Channel Focus noise reduction plug-in is ideal for manual transcription services, and the broadcast organizations that rely upon them," said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for video at Adobe. "Our testing in Adobe Audition and Adobe Premiere Pro shows it works very well without requiring complicated parameters or deep knowledge of noise reduction techniques. This plug-in shows the value that open standards and extensibility offer our mutual customers, allowing them to choose the right solution for their individual needs."
