CEDIA 2017: Alexa, Google Assistant & Other Voice UIs Come Into Their Own
Joseph Palenchar for Twice: This week’s CEDIA 2017 is giving A/V products and custom-installed integrated systems more of a voice in the way they’re controlled.
New products are on the way from multiple suppliers to deliver voice control of key product features through speakers equipped with the Amazon and Google voice-powered digital assistants. Proprietary voice control is also turning up in the second product from Josh.ai.
Some products, mainly tabletop speakers, are getting built-in Amazon and Google virtual assistants and far-field microphones.
“Voice control and its ever-evolving place in the ecosystem for our type of sale” are among the key trends that ProSource CEO/president Dave Workman said he will be tracking at the show.
“Voice is critical at this point,” added CEDIA emerging technologies VP Dave Pedigo. “We’ll continue to see more products with voice control.”
