CRI Middleware has announced the release of the newest update to its communication middleware CRI TeleXus. The new version adds support for large-scale, simultaneous voice chat between thousands of users.
CRI TeleXus is middleware that supports online communication. The purpose of the product is to invigorate communication within a virtual space, and it includes notable features, such as voice chat with a low data transmission rate of 10Kbps and support for simultaneous conversations between around 100 people (related article).
With the new update, it is now possible to hold large-scale voice chat within a virtual space while also keeping server loads to a reasonable level. It also includes a voice-altering function to protect the personal privacy and anonymity of users, and a spatial audio function that helps to differentiate between each person’s voice.
Additionally, the new update also applies improvements to both the peer-to-peer communication and spatial audio. Also available is a beta version of the Speech To Text function, which converts voice chat conversations into text in real time.
As for future updates, the company plans to implement an AI interpreting function that will enable conversations between speakers of different languages and a video chat function, which will be offered for a separate fee to regular voice chat.
