Atigeo, an innovative provider of platforms that deliver relevant information across a broad spectrum of communities, announced today that it has executed an OEM License Agreement with Vianix. Under this agreement, Vianix's MASC technology will become the voice standard at the core of Atigeo's mobility platform which will be made available to the companies' joint customers.
"We are committed to integrating only the best partners and technologies in our platform," said Michael Sandoval, CEO of Atigeo. "MASC is clearly the best of breed in speech processing when it comes to voice recognition and compression. Our relationship with Vianix expresses our continued commitment to associating ourselves, and our clients, with the best in the business. I have tremendous admiration for the quality of Vianix's MASC technology, and I'm very proud to be partnering with a company that shares our vision for providing customers truly revolutionary advanced social mobile solutions."
Atigeo plans to use the MASC technology for transcription, biometrics and automated call directory, to name a few.
Reza Hashampour, Vianix's President and CEO said, "It is extremely rewarding to work with a professional and visionary organization with which we share so many common values. I am a confirmed believer in Mr. Sandoval's vision for community and mobility, and I am very pleased to be able to contribute to Atigeo's success."
Founded in June, 2005 by CEO Michael Sandoval, Atigeo's mission is to reveal relevance in personal connections, information, and entertainment. Adding value in political, charitable, and faith-based organizations, and in the areas of sports and entertainment, retail, and education, Atigeo's platform and technology replace intuition with statistical analysis to predict human behavior across the entire spectrum of electronic devices, from cell phones to computers, in real time. Voice applications are a key driver for these solutions. MASC further enhances the value to both users and service providers with management of bandwidth and storage requirements, while also maintaining the high intelligibility and Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) accuracy which has made MASC an industry-proven choice.
Notably, the voice search component of the Mobile Voice Services market alone is valued at $11B.
