ATEN Technology, Inc., the technology leader and global manufacturer of KVM and Pro AV connectivity solutions, today announced that its Pro AV and KVM products will be integrated with Bosch’s Digital Congress Network (DCN) Conference System to custom build meeting technology needed for the development of modern enterprises. Through control, data sharing and Pro AV management, the efficiency of meetings can be optimized and therefore lead to enhanced corporate competitiveness.
As we enter the era of big data and information fragmentation, enterprises will have to enhance their reaction efficiency and decision quality to cope with variable competition. Thus, a meeting that could accelerate decision-making and improve team engagement could be the key to success.
ATEN focuses on intelligent control solutions, having developed a series of control systems including the VK2100 control box, VK1100 compact control box, VK224 4-port serial expansion box and VK6000 configurator software – to integrate with all kinds of AV meeting equipment.
In order to satisfy customers’ needs for intelligent control of meetings, ATEN choose to cooperate with Bosch, a leader in business meeting applications. As a global leading brand, Bosch’s digital discussion systems are highly praised by the industry, and the company’s outstanding performance could greatly improve the efficiency and fluency of meeting communications. With the integration of Bosch’s digital discussion systems – including DICENTIS, DCN and CCS1000D – ATEN can manage meeting systems through one-touch operation.
With the product integration, additional new features include:
The activation status of all microphones on the control system interface
Chairperson’s microphone priority settings
Turning the speaker’s microphone on and off
Indicating the status of awaiting speakers
Other parameter settings, including microphone sensitivity
In addition, ATEN also integrates with third-party equipment. Users can:
Track a speaker’s movement with conference cameras
Adjust AV settings according to different meeting scenarios
Integrate and automate environmental equipment (such as lighting, air conditioning and curtains)
With ATEN’s and Bosch’s existing strength and experience in the AV industry, ATEN customers using the new integrated control solutions can gradually enhance their meeting technology and reinforce global competitiveness. In the future, ATEN will continue working with Bosch to develop new business values through assisting enterprises’ transformation to intelligent meeting control.

Otter.ai to Bring AI-Powered Meeting Note Collaboration Service to Japan in Partnership with NTT DOCOMO

“The Japanese market values high quality detailed meeting notes, and Otter.ai’s highly accurate AI-powered note taker overcomes language barriers and improves the operating efficiency of Japanese companies with global operations,” said Tomoyoshi Oono, SVP and GM at DOCOMO.

LOS ALTOS, Calif. (PRWEB) January 23, 2020
Otter.ai announced today a multi-faceted business partnership with Japan’s leading mobile operator NTT DOCOMO, INC. to support Otter’s expansion in Japan and offer advanced business productivity and collaboration services to enterprise companies. DOCOMO made a strategic investment in Otter through its wholly-owned subsidiary NTT DOCOMO Ventures, Inc. and announced plans for its AI-based translation service subsidiary to integrate Otter’s meeting note collaboration into its offering to provide highly accurate English transcripts translated into Japanese.
“The Japanese market values high quality detailed meeting notes, and Otter.ai’s highly accurate AI-powered note taker overcomes language barriers and improves the operating efficiency of Japanese companies with global operations,” said Tomoyoshi Oono, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Innovation Management Department in the R&D Innovation Division at DOCOMO. “There is a large business market opportunity for Otter.ai and DOCOMO’s translation service.”
“Otter is pleased to partner with market leader DOCOMO to bring innovative business collaboration offerings to Japan that transcend language and transform the way people work,” said Sam Liang, CEO and founder of Otter.ai. “DOCOMO’s support and commitment have enabled Otter to quickly address business needs in Japan for a highly accurate meeting note taking collaboration app.”
As a part of Otter’s customer engagement with DOCOMO the Otter Voice Meeting Notes application is being used on a trial basis in Berlitz Corporation’s English language classes in Japan. Students use Otter to transcribe and review the content of lessons, click on sections of text, and initiate voice playback. DOCOMO, Otter.ai and Berlitz are expanding their collaboration in language education to verify Otter’s effectiveness in the study of English
DOCOMO is featuring Otter during demonstrations at the DOCOMO Open House 2020, taking place in the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition complex January 23 and 24, 2020. The Otter application will transcribe the English language presentations in real-time which will then be translated into Japanese using a machine translation engine jointly developed by DOCOMO and one of its subsidiaries. Both the English transcription and a simultaneous Japanese translation will be projected on a large screen so lectures can be presented and understood in both English and Japanese.
The Otter application automatically records sentences according to the context of a speech, even over long multi-party conversations, and can transcribe text with high accuracy in real time. AI is used to identify and label speakers by name in meetings, and their conversations are accurately transcribed, significantly reducing the time required to produce reports or meeting minutes. In addition, users can search transcribed content by keyword and play back specific sections merely by selecting the text on the screen, making it easy to review and share the content of meetings, improving productivity and team collaboration.
