What is a Video IVR or IVVR ( Interactive Voice and Video Response System) ?
This is nothing but IVRS ( Interactive Voice Response System), but it also has video. So essentially the calling terminal has to have video screen as well as video playing capability! It also requires high bandwidth, so existing POTS (Plain Old Telephone System) or 2G mobile phones can not be used to make a call to IVVR Server. IVVR is essentially for 3G or 4G Mobile Phones.
It can take inputs or commands from users either in the form of DTMF or Voice Recognition.
It can also be used in Voice Portal to deliver users many exciting services like instant cricket video update, live sports update, watch few interesting TV programs, catch up with TV Live Breaking news! It will also be used in live interactive multi-player games!
Overall IVVR seems an quite interesting development, enhancement in IVR Applications. Since Video will be delivered to user handset as Video Call, it eliminates requirement of processing the video feed for different 3G phones!
APEX Voice Communications, Inc. is one such company which has Video IVR Solutions.
