D-Link and SVOX Launch Speech Server
ZURICH, SWITZERLAND -- D-Link, a global networking manufacturer, is launching its Speech Server together with SVOX, its partner in speech synthesis technology. At CeBIT, products and solutions for the call center sector will be presented for the first time. As well as the Speech Server itself, these products include Speech Server implementation into telephony environments. The Speech Server unites D-Link's server technologies with SVOX's speech technology software. The Server is available as a 19" unit and offers numerous features such as SCA hot-swap drives, slim DVD/CD-Rom and FDD as well as its minimal dimensions. D-Link uses SVOX speech technology in the form of text-to-speech software. This enables integration into speech applications that can operate over a maximum of 200 channels. Its special features are the natural quality of its voices and its mixed-language capability. According to D-Link, this is the world's first system with mixed language output that makes it possible to switch languages mid-sentence in the same voice. For Klaus Dieter Hesse, managing director of D-Link Germany, the partnership with SVOX represents a further significant step in the expansion of D-Link's product range: "The increasing integration of server technologies and all kinds of applications requires strong partners and the best skills to bring rewards for both sides. In SVOX we have found such a partner. The forward-looking technology and first-class quality of SVOX's software enable optimum integration into our products and top quality and ease of use for our customers."
