Pocketalk Introduces a Suite of Translation Solutions
Pocketalk, a provider of translation solutions, is launching Pocketalk for Business, a suite of artificial intelligence-powered solutions including Geneva, delivering instantaneous translations to audiences across any event; Sentio, a web-based solution for in-person and virtual meeting spaces; Vox, a high-speed video translation capability; and Ventana, an administrative panel that provides insights into translations and device management.
Geneva is for multilingual interactions in any setting that has an audience, such as conferences, classrooms, and training sessions. It enables audience accessibility to content in their own languages via their smart devices. With a simple QR code scan, event attendees gain access to content, via audio and text, in their preferred languages through a web platform on their devices.
Sentio is a browser-based live translation service that uses OpenAI's Whisper voice technology, enabling users to engage in conversations in their own languages during meetings or through any virtual meeting platform, including Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams.
Accessible via browser across PC, Mac, iOS, and Android, Vox provides translations of video content, spanning everything from movies, training and documentaries to educational materials and social media moments. It crafts voice-overs and subtitles, regardless of the video's original language. An hour-long video can be translated in just 15 minutes .
With Ventana, businesses gain complete control over their Pocketalk devices from real-time translation insights and management. This administrative panel enables users to group Pocketalk devices, remotely manage functions, gain valuable insights into device usage, and export data on translated languages and usage frequency.
"Language is the final hurdle for us to truly become a global marketplace, workforce, and community. There has been a huge shift since the pandemic that has enabled the world to work closer together, more efficiently and offer better opportunities for all involved. However, without the ability to communicate it's not reaching its full potential," said Noriyuki Matsuda, president and CEO of Pocketalk, in a statement. "Pocketalk has responded to this by creating Pocketalk for Business and providing solutions that empower people to communicate with anyone simply with a device or a browser. We are so excited to see the meaningful impact that these new products will have and welcome the response to help us evolve."
