SANS Inc. Announces New Version of Language Lab Software Compatible with Microsoft Windows 8.1

North Branford, CT, February 05, 2014 --(PR.com)-- SANS Inc., the developer and exclusive licensor of Sony language learning software solutions, has just released Version 14.0 of the Sony Virtuoso™ and Sony Soloist® digital language lab software. A key element of this software update is compatibility with the Microsoft® Windows® 8.1 Operating System (OS).

The XAudio2 API for Windows 8.1 will benefit the audio processing that takes place within the Sony language lab software to increase the already robust transfer of audio data which provides the language learner with a purer sound, capturing the nuances of the target language.

According to Ron Remschel, SANS President, “SANS continues its commitment to aligning the Sony Virtuoso and Soloist software suite with the latest technology advances, so that our customers can continue to use our language lab technology as they change and update their OS infrastructure. Unlike so many other language lab technologies that are in the marketplace, ours gives schools a true migration path, ensuring a good return on their technology investment.”

Several other key features have been added to the Sony digital language lab suite as well. A new Oral Test Mode is now built-in to very easily facilitate standardized testing that includes a speaking component like that in the Advanced Placement (AP®) world languages exams. The Sony Soloist digital comparative recorder now includes a new “E” enhanced interface design, giving it a cleaner aesthetic and making it more user-friendly.

SANS is a leading instructional technology provider for language learning programs – FL, ESL, and ASL. Technologies include the Sony Virtuoso™ and Soloist® digital language lab software suite and SANSSpace™ virtual language learning platform.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
