TOULOUSE, FRANCE - Davi Interactive, an interactive 3D animation creation and production studio for multimedia applications, has chosen Elan Sayso TTS to speech-enable Lucy, one of their virtual hostesses. "Computers lack humanity. Our 3D animated actors are living interfaces who can listen and speak, so as to enable a more natural and intuitive means of communication than a keyboard and mouse." says Pascal Arbault, Managing Director of Davi Interactive. Davi Interactive's human actors can give advice, assistance, help or just entertain the end-users. They can be hosts or mascots to a trademark, but also presenters, salespeople, trainers, technicians or messengers. As a software integrator, Davi Interactive works with La Cantoche (real-time 3D agent animation Living Actor technology), among others, to offer turnkey solutions to clients who are looking for an original way to animate a website and improve their relationship with their visitors.
