Westford, Mass – Digital Voice Systems, Inc. (DVSI) the recognized leader in the development of low-data-rate speech compression technology has introduced the USB-3012™, a multi-channel USB device capable of up to twelve full-duplex simultaneous encoder/decoder operations.

The USB-3012™ is available in two models allowing it to meet a wide variety of customer applications.  The standard USB-3012™ USB Device features DVSI’s latest generation AMBE+2TM vocoder and offers interoperability with DMR, dPMR and MotoTRBO applications.  The USB-3012™ P25 version also includes interoperability with APCO P25.  All USB-3012™ USB Devices provide access to the advanced features and benefits of DVSI’s vocoders that include: Voice Activity Detection (VAD), adaptive Comfort Noise Insertion (CNI) and support for DTMF tones. 

Whichever version is chosen, the USB-3012™ USB Device is the fastest and easiest way to access multiple channels of DVSI’s vocoder technology.  Integration of the USB-3012™ USB Device is simplified since drivers are available for a variety of operating systems.  DVSI includes Windows based PC software so that users can install the USB-3012™ USB and begin to encode and decode files immediately.

The USB-3012™ can play a key role in the development and production of real-time communication systems, including push-to-talk land mobile radio, satellite and telephony.  With off the shelf availability and no up-front licensing fees or royalties the USB-3012™ USB Device is a low cost alternative to a vocoder software implementation.  The USB-3012™ USB Device enables users to quickly and easily integrate a DVSI vocoder while minimizing the engineering time and development costs associated with hardware demos/prototypes. 

The value of DVSI’s USB-3012™ goes beyond its compact and easy to use design.  The USB-3012™ USB can also be used as a comprehensive, evaluation, test and development platform to simulate actual system conditions as a quality control reference standard for production.

According to Bob Maher, DVSI’s Director of Sales and Marketing: “The USB-3012™ provides 12 channels of DVSI’s most advanced AMBETM vocoder technology in a single USB Device.  It is an ideal solution for manufacturers to develop multi-channel systems for critical applications where bandwidth is at a premium and voice intelligibility is imperative.”
