Nearly every device in your home or office contains integrated digital signal processing (DSP). With embedded DSP, iZotope technology can be integrated directly into your hardware, removing the need for additional or external processing.
iZotope’s widely-used and award-winning technologies are now found on Analog Devices SHARC and Blackfin processors. Whether you’re integrating audio DSP for a microphone, mixing console, video camera, or handheld device, we’ve made our flagship technologies available for your real-time audio processing needs.

Tiki USB Mic
iZotope DSP in the new Tiki from Blue Microphones
Whether it's a serious Skype session with a business partner or a festive FaceTime date with the grandparents, nobody wants to hear commotion on the other side of the call. For microphone manufacturers, this pesky environmental noise can be a real pain in the ear. To address the issue for Tiki, Blue Microphones' latest USB mic, Blue turned to iZotope's ANR (Adaptive Noise Reduction) and KCR (Keyboard Click Reduction) technologies.
iZotope's ANR is based on the simple premise that speech and music are highly variant over a short period of time, while background noise is persistent and changes slowly. Using a sophisticated spectral processing technique, ANR can quickly identify and surgically subtract the "noiseprint" from the incoming audio signal without degrading the quality of the desired speech or music.
iZotope's KCR, however, is based on the inverse—keyboard click sounds are extremely short and transitory. As a form of noise, they tend to span the entire frequency spectrum. While ANR performs its sonic surgery over a long period of time, KCR operates only in short slices of time, ensuring that the speech or music you want to hear won’t be interrupted.
The end result is that Tiki is constantly "listening" to noises and either reducing them or eliminating them entirely before they get to the computer, yielding significantly cleaner speech and music on the other side.
