Sensear clinches Motorola headsets deal

A PERTH technology company has signed an exclusive deal with US giant Motorola to design cutting edge headsets for international markets.

The partnership deal will provide new headsets for use in high-noise environments, such as in the mining and heavy industries.

Sensear, which has been in operation for seven years, will design Bluetooth noise-cancelling headsets and two-way radios with Motorola.

Sensear managing director Justin Miller said it was “a major win for us and a huge boost to our credibility as the world leader in communication headsets”.

Under the deal, the jointly designed headset, XBT, will be used in Motorola’s Bluetooth enabled two-way radios.

The XBT will combine Sensear’s patented speech enhancement, noise suppression technology with Motorola’s propriety push-to-talk technology.

The headset was launched in Las Vegas last week at Motorola’s annual Channel Partner expo.

Technology developed by Sensear separates harmful background noise from voice to allow both face-to-face and remote communication in loud environments while still enabling operators to be aware of their surroundings.

Its products are aimed at the resources and manufacturing sector, which for safety and productivity reasons need to be able to clearly understand conversations.

Motorola is a communications giant which specialises in communication infrastructure, devices, software and services and reported $US8.7 billion in sales in 2012. Motorola estimates there are more than 40 million two-way radios deployed across the globe, with a trend of replacing analogue radios with digital ones.

It sees two-way radios as an important market with innovative technologies keeping the company ahead of the competition.
