Detection of an audio signal transient using first and second maximum norms


Provided are, among other things, systems, methods and techniques for detecting whether a transient exists within an audio signal. According to one representative embodiment, a segment of a digital audio signal is divided into blocks, and a norm value is calculated for each of a number of the blocks, resulting in a set of norm values for such blocks, each such norm value representing a measure of signal strength within a corresponding block.

Synchronous audio distribution to portable computing devices


Analog audio inputs are processed by a digital signal processor and rebroadcast over a local wireless network synchronous with a separate broadcast device or in real time with a live audio source. A software application on a portable computing device provides end-users the option to select from a plurality of audio source streams, cached translations of preprocessed audio streams and speech-to-text captioning.

Proximity-detection systems and methods


When two or more devices are near each other, they are likely to hear the same ambient sounds. To detect such proximity, each device captures a short digital audio signal from its microphone and uploads it to a proximity-detecting service along with a timestamp that indicates when the clip was captured.
