Nexidia, a provider of rich media search and speech analytics solutions, has announced the availability of Nexidia Developer Edition, the company's new software development platform. Nexidia Developer Edition will enable content creators and aggregators to deliver rich media search capabilities to their consumers through the Web. Nexidia Developer Edition is built upon the company's phonetic search engine that is delivering results to enterprises across a range of industries.
Organizations ranging from content producers to Web portals to traditional business enterprises are faced with opportunities and challenges associated with making unstructured data searchable to their end-users. Nexidia will partner with providers in their respective industries to respond to this need. Nexidia Developer Edition gives these organizations the ability to obtain insight into their multimedia assets and leverage this information in other ways. Nexidia allows users to search on the actual audio content in the media. This is because Nexidia Developer Edition is built upon the company's phonetics-based search engine that performs searches based on sounds, not text.
Technical features of the Nexidia ESI Developer Edition, include: Application Framework, where audio indexing and search components are made available to application developers via open-standard Web Service (SOAP) interfaces. These interfaces are designed to allow the integration of speech analysis without a detailed understanding of the underlying technologies and SDKs; Ease of Integration, by providing a standards-based SOAP interface, Nexidia Web Services can be integrated into applications built with virtually any programming language running on the majority of commercial platforms; Future Proofing, by integrating through the published interfaces, organizations will be able to take advantage of improvements in Nexidia's system performance to evolve their products with little development overhead; and Scalability, by leveraging the characteristics of Nexidia's phonetic search engine, Nexidia Developer Edition is able to process large volumes of audio content without the investment in hardware required by other solutions.
