At paragon semvox, we aim at making things simple, quick and efficient. Therefore, we create technology that is intelligent and cooperative: It understands the user’s requests, allocates them to the respective devices or functions and is able to disambiguate the user’s intentions through collaborative dialog.
All functions and devices in the living room can be operated via voice, touch or gesture, or even via a combination of different modes of interaction (for example “Show me further information!” while pointing at an object on the screen). Additional applications and functions such as web services, social media etc. can be easily integrated. Thus, users can share a movie recommendation with their friends via email, text message or facebook or buy the movie soundtrack online. Instead of having to search long lists, clicking through the EPG or dealing with rigid and complex menu structures, users simply say what they want! Naturally, several functions can be accessed and used en-route! Our solutions can be easily integrated into standard computers, net-tops, net-books, set-top boxes or home theater PCs. We can also realise a remote-control via a smartphone app. Our gesture control solution offers users an additional form of natural interaction: it enables users to browse a media center in a comfortable way.
