Date:9/30/2008

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Audience today announced it is the overall Silver Winner in this year's Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Awards and the winner of the Semiconductors category.

By understanding the auditory pathway -- from the cochlea to the brainstem to the thalamus and cortex -- Audience is the first company to deliver a commercial product based on the science of Auditory Scene Analysis (ASA), or the grouping and processing of complex mixtures of sound. Since the Audience Voice Processor handles signals the way people actually perceive specific sounds, it is able to identify and suppress noise sources in an extremely efficient and accurate manner. Audience's first product, the A1010 Voice Processor, is already enabling people to be heard on mobile handsets from leading manufacturers throughout Japan and Korea.

In the Wall Street Journal article about the Technology Innovation Awards, Robert Drost, a distinguished engineer at Sun Microsystems Inc. and one of the judges, said the technology, "addresses what many people recognize is a big problem on cellphones."

The Wall Street Journal received more than 700 entries for the Technology Innovation Awards, with only about 4% receiving an award. "We are truly honored to receive one of the most prestigious technology awards in the world," said Peter Santos, Audience President and CEO. "We expect Audience's innovative technology to have a positive impact in mobile phones and across a broad range of consumer products where voice needs to be intelligible in noisy environments."
