Avaya Spaces video conferencing app to get boost from Nvidia AI

Avaya among the first video conferencing platforms to leverage Nvidia’s cloud AI capabilities

The Covid-19 pandemic has turned video into a must-have, and this trend is likely to continue. A recent survey by research firm ZK Research revealed that post-pandemic, the number of remote workers will jump from 22 per cent to 40 per cent, and almost all ‘meetings’ will include video.

With that interest, video has emerged as the new frontier for innovation.

Nvidia has announced a new AI-powered videoconferencing platform for developers named Nvidia Maxine that it says can overcome some of the hitches that plague video calls. Maxine will process calls in the cloud using Nvidia’s GPUs and boost call quality through artificial intelligence.

Avaya is among the first video conferencing platforms to leverage Nvidia’s cloud AI capabilities. Customers using its Avaya Spaces video conferencing app will benefit from background noise removal, virtual green screen backgrounds, presenter features that enable presenters to be overlaid on top of presentation content, as well as live transcriptions that can recognise and differentiate voices.

The cloud aspect reduces end-user device requirements, allowing these advanced features to be available broadly without the need to use any specialised hardware or even update the camera.

“With Nvidia’s leadership in artificial intelligence and Avaya’s 20 years of innovation, we’re able to deliver AI from the cloud and cost-effectively scale to help address the rapid growth in meetings and collaboration in a work-from-anywhere world,” said Anthony Bartolo, executive vice president and chief product officer, Avaya.
