    Hi Everyone,

    FaceFX here.

    I wanted to spread the word about our new text-to audio animation service. We've partnered with Cereproc to combine industry leading TTS technology with our cloud-based analysis platform. The result is super-realistic talking characters using only text as input. We've created a highly-scalable, low-latency solution that can drive everything from movie-making applications to Siri clones.

    We've also created a demo that combines the TTS and animation generation into a Unity application to create a dynamic talking character. It even has an example of Pandorabot technology and you can download the source code here. Combined with a developer key (email us at info (at) oc3ent.com to obtain one), you will have everything you need to start prototyping with the service.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    If you will be at the Game Developer's Conference, swing by booth #937 to say hello.
