Audio technologies can create engaging user experiences and human/machine interactions, via complex distributed technologies that are easily customised by individual Users.

Brands and Manufacturers recognise in this the potential to power emotionally engaging experiences, but know also that a "me too" approach is simply not enough to succeed.

Segotia combines technical experience with an understanding of market and customer requirements to design differentiated products from the ground up, using strong, partnership-based processes.

PLATFORM

We're investing in the following key technology pillars to build a platform that accelerates the integration of solutions spanning Hardware, Software, Cloud and Machine Learning:

VOICE

Voice is the ultimate User Interface, promising hands-free, touch-free, personalised interactions between Users and Machines

SEGOTIA provides WakeWord, Speech-To-Text and Speech-To-Intent solutions, across multiple languages

PERSON

Personalisation is differentiation by physiology, privacy, geography, timing - or anything the User wants to make their own

SEGOTIA P13n solutions provide a range of UX customisations - powered by the User themselves

SPACE

Sound is a complex, 3-dimensional phenomenon, comprising both sound sources and, importantly: physical acoustic context

SEGOTIA delivers full-sphere 3D audio, for Capture (Direction-of-Arrival) and Render (Virtualisation)

FOG

The Edge Device (Earbud, Soundbar) is where personal, private stuff runs, while the Cloud is where large-scale, complex anonymous systems and services live

SEGOTIA navigates the fluid Fog deployment model to meet dynamic User and context-driven requirements

SOLUTIONS

SEGOTIA integrates best-of-breed technologies, delivered through its purpose-built Platform to accelerate the development of next-generation Products for the following key Application areas:

HEADPHONE

We power Headphone and Earbud products by integrating DSP IP & Companion App development for wireless Headphone SoC and wired PC platforms

LOUDSPEAKER

We make speaker products smart, personal and space-aware with Voice Activation, Personalised Service Delivery and Spatial Audio Capture & Render solutions

APP

Our OS-agnostic Companion Mobile/Tablet App connects resource-critical functions on the Edge Device to fog-based services, all configured & controlled by the User

INDUSTRIAL

Our Voice and Spatial audio technologies drive Cobotic features, such as: Voice Activation, Spatial Awareness and Predictive Noise Control

TEAM

Culann mac Cabe
Culann mac Cabe

After completing a PhD in psychoacoustics in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, Culann worked in Windmill Lane Recording Studios, with some of the biggest bands in the world, designing creative/productivity tools for day-to-day activities.

He then built and ran a number of hybrid Studio/R&D businesses, combining real-world, real time learning from commercial recording activities with technology development and consultancy to develop useful tools for ever-changing customer needs.

Culann has worked with audio/music throughout his career and Segotia is a return to roots: that 3D spatial psychoacoustics PhD from years ago now gets used in ways that he never imagined... and the best is yet to come!

Brendan Clavin

Brendan has spent his career in Silicon Valley, starting with Apple subsidiary Claris, to deliver the first Japanese version of Clarisworks. He went on to build Ariba's Globalization Development team, serving European and Asian customers.

He was Google's first Internationalization Engineering team hire, responsible for internationalisation of Google products worldwide. He went on to found his own company, Tethras, and has held senior engineering positions at Adobe, GoDaddy and Monsanto.

Brendan is passionate about delivering software solutions to a global audience. When he's not tackling the challenges Segotia throws his way, you can find him relaxing on the golf course, or maybe powering up a steep incline on his mountain bike.
