Vianix v. Nuance Communications


11/12/09 – 11/19/09


6 day bench trial.

Via Speech Technology Magazine: "In court papers made public this week, Vianix, has filed suit against Nuance Communications, seeking up to $30 million in unpaid licensing fees related to the use of its Managed Audio Sound Compression (MASC) technology in Nuance’s Dictaphone product line.

According to court papers originally filed in Wilmington, Del., June 2, Virginia Beach, Va.-based Vianix began licensing the MASC audio compression software to Dictaphone in January 2003. Nuance acquired Dictaphone in March 2006 and continues its operations as the Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions division.

Vianix’s MASC technology is reportedly being used by Nuance's Dictaphone division in many of its dictation and transcription products, namely its Enterprise Express, Enterprise Workstation, EXSpeech, iChart, iChart Managed Services, Powerscribe, and Powerscribe Workstation SDK."
