Mobile video provider Dialogic Corporation announced the integration of its DiaStar Server release 2.1 and the LumenVox (News - Alert) Speech Engine.
This combination will give the LumenVox ASR solution more power and flexibility for Asterisk developers creating video and voice applications with the DiaStar Server.
The new features and improvements offered through this combination include speech recognition for English, French and Spanish; support for speech-industry standards including SRGS grammars; real-time barge-in and speech recognition by the use of the native Asterisk (News - Alert) speech API; and compatibility with LumenVox Speech Tuner to aid in testing, troubleshooting and enhancing speech recognition accuracy.
The ability for Asterisk developers to use the DiaStar Server to build applications like video surveillance systems, IVVR systems, mobile advertising and banking, video portals, basic video call completion and multimedia social networks continue to be expanded by these new features and improved features.
'This particular integration highlights many of the benefits of the open source development model and the client server architecture used with the DiaStar Server,' said Antony Martin, Director of Open Source Engineering at Dialogic (News - Alert). 'We were able to leverage the previous work of LumenVox to integrate its products with Asterisk and get this integration working by only adding one simple function to DiaStar.'
Edward Miller, the president at LumenVox noted that this solution offers more value to the existing and brand new users of Asterisk and LumenVox.
"It is now easy to develop a video and voice IVR with world-class speech recognition with the DiaStar Server's seamless integration," Miller said.
According to a release, Project DiaStar is an open source project that offers access to Dialogic's improved media and signaling functionality from present open source platforms like Asterisk through the Woomera protocol.
