2Hz, is a developer of voice and audio technologies and applications aimed at enhancing call clarity and productivity. After hearing that the company has released its patented Krisp noise cancellation and voice enhancement application on Windows and Mac OS, I felt compelled to find out more.
The new AI-powered Krisp removes background noises and adapts to each person’s voice resulting in unparalleled call quality. Krisp mutes noises in both directions of the call, plus it seamlessly integrates with all conferencing apps including Skype, WebEx, Zoom, Slack, Hangouts Meet and more, independent of the users microphone or headset.
2Hz developed and trained a deep neural network to address two fundamental challenges with audio and video communications: muting background noises bi-directionally for all users on a call, and providing clear speech throughout the call. But I wanted to find out more about the story behind this technology.
The result of the company’s research of tens of thousands of unique noise distractors, voice types and languages, became Krisp, an application that at its core requires no dependency on specific microphones or speakers and cancels all extraneous noise types during calls.
“More and more professional calls are taking place from noisy, distracting environments- open workspaces, coffee shops- even the home office, and we want to fix that for everyone,” said Davit Baghdasaryan, CEO of 2Hz.
