Speech Recognition Capabilities Added to the DiaStar® Server

Parsippany, NJ (MARCH 10, 2010) — Dialogic Corporation ("Dialogic"), a global provider of world–class products and technologies for multimedia and signal processing, and LumenVox, an innovator in speech recognition technologies, today announced the integration of the DiaStar™ Server, release 2.0 and the LumenVox Speech Engine. This integration brings all of the power and flexibility of the LumenVox ASR solution to Asterisk® developers building Voice and Video Applications with the DiaStar Server.

New / enhanced features of the DiaStar Server include:

  • Speech recognition for English, Spanish, and French
  • Real–time barge–in and speech recognition using the native Asterisk speech API
  • Compatible with the award–winning LumenVox Speech Tuner to help test, troubleshoot, and improve speech recognition accuracy

These new features and enhancements continue to expand Asterisk developers' ability to utilize the DiaStar Server to create applications such as IVVR systems, Video Surveillance Systems, Video Gateways, Mobile Advertising and Banking, Multimedia Social Networking and basic Video Call Completion.

"This particular integration really 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. "We were able to leverage the previous work of LumenVox to integrate their products with Asterisk and get this integration working by only adding one simple function to DiaStar."

"This solution brings even more value to users of LumenVox and Asterisk, whether they are existing customers or brand new users," said LumenVox President Edward Miller. "With DiaStar's seamless integration, it is now simple to build a voice and video IVR with world–class speech recognition."

Project DiaStar™ is an open source project sponsored by Dialogic Corporation, providing access to Dialogic's enhanced media and signaling functionality from existing open source platforms such as Asterisk via the Woomera protocol.
