With Media Streams, we’re making it easy for businesses to apply their own AI to voice calls or integrate third party solutions with a few lines of code."
"Media Streams ensures our customers have great experiences when they call into GLOBO's telephone interpreting services," said Jonathan De Jong, VP of engineering at GLOBO. "With direct access to raw audio data via Media Streams, we can now use sentiment analysis to detect calls that require urgent attention and take action in real-time. This capability has dramatically increased call center productivity across our thousands of agents and interpreters."
