Agora to Launch Extensions Marketplace Today at the World’s Largest Real-Time Engagement Conference, RTE2021
Agora, Inc. (NASDAQ: API), a pioneer and
leading platform for real-time engagement APIs, today is set to
announce its Extensions Marketplace at RTE2021, the company’s
flagship conference and the world’s largest event exploring
real-time engagement (RTE) technologies. The new marketplace
features extensions from audio technology company Bose and a
real-time content moderation solution from Hive.
People increasingly want real-time
video or audio features in the apps they use. For example, students
in an education app want to see classmates; users in a dating app
want to see potential partners, and buyers in a shopping app want
to talk to sellers. However, for many developers, real-time video
and audio functionality are too difficult and expensive to build.
Enter Agora whose platform allows developers to easily embed
powerful real-time engagement experiences -- video and audio --
into their apps and services. Globally, Agora powers 50 billion
minutes of video and audio engagements each month.
With Extensions Marketplace, Agora
enables developers to further maximize the RTE opportunity, giving
them direct access to a variety of partner extensions that they can
instantly activate. Extensions include video and audio modifiers,
RTE analytics tools, content classifiers to identify images on
screen, and more. Extensions Marketplace lowers the usual lift
necessary for integration of RTE-enhancing technology, simplifying
all aspects of the process from partner discovery to billing.
“Agora Extensions Marketplace is a
one-stop shop for extensions to Agora’s core video, voice and
streaming capabilities, allowing developers to add powerful
features to enhance real-time engagement,” said Virginia Liu,
Agora’s SVP Marketing & Ecosystems. “The platform makes it easy
to add rich feature extensions to real-time video and voice because
we’ve simplified the process from end-to-end. In doing so, we
empower developers to focus on what they do best -- innovate.”
The Extensions Marketplace features a
number of inaugural partners at RTE2021, including Bose and Hive.
The Bose extension, PinPoint™ noise filter, helps reduce unwanted
background noise whether in a conference call, playing an on-line
game, or using a chat app. The extension can be used with any
headphones, in any Agora application.
Hive’s extension offers a native
integration with its best-in-class visual content moderation API,
and is able to detect -- in real-time -- a wide range of offensive
content such as hate symbols, nudity, violence, and more. Hive
intends to offer more of its production extensions in the future,
exposing other APIs such as those for OCR, speech-to-text, and
logo, object, and scene detection.
“As developers increasingly integrate
real-time engagement into their services and apps, a performant and
scalable content moderation solution is more critical than ever,”
said Kevin Guo, CEO at Hive. “Through Agora’s Extensions
Marketplace, we can scale content moderation even further to the
benefit of the entire digital ecosystem, helping developers protect
users from coming in contact with undesirable content.”
In addition to Bose and Hive, Agora is
unveiling even more extension partners at its RTE2021 conference.

realistic facial animation in the world

1,500 developers,” said Jaime Bosch, CEO and Co-Founder of
Voicemod. “We are excited to partner, driving further scale for our
solutions and increasing availability of Voice Avatars to
This year, RTE2021, a virtual event --
which kicks off today and is free of charge -- brings together
leading global voices to discuss innovations in voice, video and
streaming during a time where these are perhaps more important than

to developing the real-time engagement (RTE) ecosystem. In addition

the RTE ecosystem.
