State of the Art Video API 

The Vonage Video API (formerly TokBox OpenTok) makes it easy to build custom video experiences within any mobile, web, or desktop application. The scalable “pay-as-you-go” pricing model makes it suitable for businesses of any size. It has all the features you would expect from a modern video conferencing tool like recording, voice, messaging, audio detection, screen sharing, and many more.

Easy to Integrate AR Filters for your Video Streams

Vonage Video API natively integrates with the DeepAR SDK that allows you to include high-quality AR face filters for your video calls; from beauty and makeup effects (including skin smoothing) to fun Snapchat-like filters, you can now add any effect you dream up to your video calls. DeepAR's patented face-tracking uses the latest deep-learning technology to provide the highest accuracy face and feature tracking for the best possible customer experience.

Background Segmentation

The DeepAR SDK allows you to add amazingly precise, real-time background removal to your video calls. Replace the background with a blur, a beautiful island background, or even a video background. You can even add professional lighting effects for your gaming streams or your next big meeting. 

Beauty, Makeup and Hair Coloring

To make AR even more fun, the DeepAR SDK can apply stunning beauty filters including changing people’s hair color in realtime, adding makeup effects like lipstick, eyeshadows and eyelashes, skin smoothing, foundation make-up and much more. Add this additional feature to improve your face filters and improve your ability to deliver comprehensive beauty and makeup effects.

Emotion, Gender, Age and Attention Analytics

The DeepAR SDK uniquely provides real-time ability to detect core emotions from the live video: anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness, and surprise. Use that to understand how your audience and users are feeling in video communications. You can also use the SDK to measure whether people are paying attention during your video conversation. The SDK also allows you to detect gender and age.

AR Content Creation and Asset Store

The DeepAR SDK comes with the free asset creation tool. DeepAR Studio allows you to create any kind of AR content for the SDK for free - let your imagination run unconstrained. DeepAR also offers an asset store with 100s of face filters that you can buy, download, and run in the SDK within minutes. We can also help you find agencies and designers to help you create awesome bespoke AR content cost-effectively and quickly.

Multi-Platform Optimised Performance

The DeepAR SDK has been developed on a modern tech stack - so that means it has been created to take full advantage of modern Operating Systems and hardware. Whether you want to run AR effects on iOS, Android, HTML5, MacOS, Windows, or Unity, we have you covered.
