Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) February 5, 2010
Vianix® today announced several PDA/SmartPhone-based mobility products based on SPART®, the revolutionary successor to its well known and widely deployed MASC® technology. SPART® (Speech Processing for Automatic Recognition Technology) is a completely re-architected solution which delivers the ultimate in high quality voice reconstruction with unrivaled human intelligibility and Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) accuracy.
MASC® has been delivering value with support for end-to-end solutions in key vertical industries for over 10 years, with an installed base of over 500,000 end users. During this time Vianix® became acutely aware of the need for an approach which did not simply offer voice compression at the expense of voice quality, but rather one which focused first and foremost on voice quality and leveraged other speech processing technologies as well as compression to deliver voice that is essentially indistinguishable, or even better, than the original.
Over two years in development, and now in several key commercial engagements, SPART® has been benchmarked against virtually every other readily available technique, both in terms of voice quality and ASR accuracy. The results are dramatic: SPART® achieves 10% to 17% higher voice quality and 57% to 88% better ASR accuracy compared to other standards-based and proprietary approaches, thus delivering great value in a variety of applications in served markets including Healthcare, Public Safety, Legal, Insurance, Call Centers, Mobile Voice Services, Voice Biometrics and Semiconductor. The broad and richly featured PDA/SmartPhone support extends the reach of this best-in-breed technology to mobile professionals in these markets as well as high end “Prosumers”.
The mobility products include:
Windows Mobile® Platform Support for narrow (8 and 11 KHz) and wide band (16 KHz):
ACM Framework: SPART® on Windows Mobile® is available in the Microsoft® ACM framework which instantly ties into any ACM based application with little to no development and integration effort. Vianix® ACM Mobility Package includes a complete speech processing solution for the mobile and the PC and Server platforms.
.NET Compact Framework (.NET CF) and Native Platform (C/C++): SPART® is now supported on the .NET CF and the Native Platform as an SDK for various voice applications. It includes record, play, pause, forward, rewind, etc. This CF also includes support for transcoding and conversion of various formats such as PCM, GSM, A-Law and others from and to the MASC®/SPART® formats.
Windows Mobile® Platform Applications:
Pocket Talk Enterprise ProTM: PTEP is a full-fledged feature rich powerful audio recording application that runs on Windows Mobile® with powerful audio features such as mark points, flexible deletion and insertion with both live and existing audio files into the current recording, and selectable quality/compression levels.
VPlayerTM is a simple audio application to play audio files that have been processed with MASC®/SPART® technology.
Mobile Phone Duplex Call Recording is a sophisticated application, based on PTEP, which sends recorded mobile calls and call information such as time of recording, and caller information, to a media server using traditional E-mail, FTP or other standard protocols.
