Auraya Systems releases its Armorvox system, which integrates both voice biometrics and voice recognition in a single system.
ITWire.com reports that previous versions of the Armorvox system used voice biometrics alone and have seen use in customer identification at the St. George call center as well as in New Zealand’s tax office. The inclusion of voice recognition comes from Auraya CEO— and former Syrinx Systems founder— Clive Summerfield’s experience with the technology.
The latest version of Armorvox is set for rollout as soon as a customer has been identified for the product. Summerfield posits that a typical server will support 250,000 voice biometric prints. Running on both Linux and Windows servers, the latest version will enable a single server to handle up to 50,000 verifications per hour, housing anywhere from 250,000 to 1 million voice prints.
Introduced back in January, the Armorvox brand has since seen three new versions come to fruition, each adding to its predecessor— Armorvox 7 with text-independent voice verification and Armorvox 8 with text-prompted voice verification.
The current version is Armorvox 9— which has added auto-tuners— allows the system to set access thresholds depending on the clarity of the captured voice print. The tuners are a speaker adaptive technology that allows Auraya partners to adjust the Armorvox system according to the specific language being used.
There are two pricing models for the new Armorvox system—$40,000 for a full year of Armorvox service, or $60,000 per server plus 15 per cent a year for service and maintenance.
