Discover a whole new world of better hearing.
Oticon Alta 2013
Inside Alta is the new Inium signal processing platform which raises speech understanding to a new level. Inium’s computing power and memory drives a new generation of Oticon features that put your clients at the center of a uniquely personalized hearing experience.
Alta’s new YouMatic fitting technology enables you to create a highly customized solution that matches the client’s unique hearing preferences. The fitting process is designed to proactively include the client’s input and capture their individual needs and preferences right from the start.
Alta offers a complete family of style options, including our popular miniRITE design and all-new process for manufacturing custom solutions. Alta has been redesigned from the ground up for better fit, wear and performance.
With Alta, you can now shape our most advanced hearing technology to fit the unique contours of the individual life of the patient who needs it. It’s what you have always wanted for your patients. With Alta, now you can provide it.
Spatial Sound is an exclusive technology based on the wireless communication between Oticon devices. It overrides the traditional compression to better preserve the naturally occurring between-ear level differences. These level differences maintain the natural binaural cues to spatial orientation of signals and confirm the natural relationship between the sound level on the ear that is closer to the signal and the one that is farther away. This helps the user to more easily place where sounds are coming from.
The Evolution of Spatial Sound
Since the introduction of our original Spatial Sound, Oticon has introduced improvements to this technology to continue to improve spatial awareness for your patients. Spatial Sound 2.0 added binaural noise management and emphasizes the ear with the better signal to noise ratio for improved understanding when necessary. Spatial Sound Premium brings the benefits of Spatial Sound to Alta and the Inium platform and is more customized through Alta’s more personalized fittings.
Speech Guard is an exclusive speech processing technology that manages the dynamic response of the hearing instrument. It more precisely codes information for the brain to process and maintain the subtle and fine characteristics of speech, clearly and cleanly. This allows the auditory system to receive more information in the speech signal. Speech Guard delivers the benefit of comfort and clarity for your patients.
Speech Guard E better preserves the onsets and offsets of words and phonemes. This helps keep voices distinct from one another and separates them more clearly from competing background noises.
Oticon’s feedback shield meets the strict performance criteria of preventing feedback without increasing artifacts, decreasing sound quality, or reducing audibility and speech intelligibility. The Inium feedback shield avoids significant distortion common with other feedback approaches and maintains full, appropriate gain that is crucial for audibility. The gain manager in feedback shield optimizes and ensures audibility even in difficult situations.
Inium feedback shield is designed to prevent whistling and howling by canceling re-amplified output that are looped back into the signal path. The intelligent balance of frequency shifting and phase inversion in feedback shield effectively removes feedback while maintaining the best possible signal fidelity. This supports speech understanding and listener acceptance.
The key to this level of personalization is Alta’s signal processing, which performs constant environmental detection and analysis and maps this information to your patient’s hearing abilities, needs and preferences. By combining these inputs, YouMatic can provide real-time adjustment of instrument response times, focus mode, noise management settings, transient management and compression changes to give your patient a highly personalized listening experience.
