Oxford Wave Research (OWR) is a specialised audio R&D company with expertise in voice biometrics, speaker diarisation, audio fingerprinting and audio enhancement. Our R&D team have contributed to major government projects, nationally and internationally. We have been particularly successful in bringing practical applications of state-of-the-art academic research algorithms to usable commercial products for law enforcement, military and other agencies. Our specialised software solutions have been developed in direct response to specific law-enforcement requirements. OWR was competitively selected by the UK Home Office to develop MADCAT media fingerprinting software, into a centralised system called ‘WHISKERS’ for the detection of illegal video material. Most recently, our well established forensic voice comparison system, called VOCALISE, used in forensic labs across the world, has been expanded to create ‘WHISPERS’, as server-based networked ‘one to many’ voice comparison system and PHONATE, our mobile on-device voice biometrics solution.
