Virtual speakers characters are the result of a research program within Cube systems, largely supported by the ANVAR.
Assistants have been used since 2005 to produce short broadcasts for TV channels and Neoscreen They act as a speaker, presenting news, programs and automated games on our channels.
As they are so easy to user, and on screen performance is excellent, program editors use them a lot. The remove the need to produce filmed broadcasts, which are much more costly in terms of materials, manpower and time.
Their use on web services naturally derives from these applications.
Based on a Flash program, assistants can be easily integrated into any web application They enrich our interactive products such as KWIZ, or merely provide a voice for KP.
Multilingual characters read out simple texts thanks to voice synthesis tools But they can also react to natural recorded voices In this case, lip synchronisation is ensured by voice recognition tools which identify phonemes..
Assistants can interact with a multimedia décor and present various multi-media subjects, perfectly synchronised.
There are multiple uses:
- Virtual speaker or presenter
- Virtual guide or hostess
- Information agent
- Virtual advisor
- Virtual professor
- Vendeur virtuel
- Virtual vendor
