NEC Unveils Voice Recognition and Auto-Transcription Solution at
eGov Global Exchange 2011


SINGAPORE, June 21 2011 
NEC Corporation
(NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today the
preview of its new voice recognition and auto-transcription solution at its inaugural participation
in
eGov Global Exchange 2011
in Singapore. This is the first time the technology is presented
outside of Japan.

This solution recognizes speech and transcribes conversations into digital transcripts. The
technology enables users to receive almost instantaneous transcriptions in a variety of
languages
[1]
, eliminating the need to take minutes manually, hence dramatically improving the
turnaround time, performance and operational efficiency of minute taking. The solution
recognizes conversations, which are captured and recorded in the Voice Recognition Servers for
Multi-Channel Recognition, where the conversations are transcribed into digitally formatted
scripts.

Benefits of this voice recognition solution:
1. Simultaneous speech recognition for multiple speakers by Multi-Microphone Input
The multi-channel Voice Activity Detection (VAD) technology detects who spoke when
in real time, even when two or more speakers speak simultaneously, reducing the time
and cost of taking minutes.

2. Quick Multimedia File Search
The solution files synchronized data for video, voice, and text. Users can rewind,
fast-forward, and search the data by keyword, speaker, date, etc.

3. Stable & Secure Speech Recording
The solution acquires voice data by using small, easy-to-use wireless microphones
based on Bluetooth® technology then transmits high-definition speech data with low
recording loss and high security.
NEC is an established IT and network solutions systems integrator and leader in biometrics
technologies that develops cutting-edge world-class integrated security solutions and
