For those not familiar with DiamondWare, they build stereo, spatially aware audio conferencing systems. An accomplished group of audio engineers, the DiamondWare team has solved the problem of how to represent people in 3 audible dimensions. Their software is in use by the US military, gaming companies, and an increasing array of carriers. And now, as part of Nortel, they’ll be integrated in the telecom giant’s virtual world project called web.alive.
The DiamondWare team has been a fixture of the VoIP world ever since I started in this industry. The technology has always been cool, but just a little outside the mainstream. In my short conversation with Keith he was excited and ready to “stay on for the long haul and scale this thing up”. It seems as if the dream he and his team have been working toward for so long has just been given the backing it needs to become reality.
Congratulations to the DiamondWare team!
