Record live audio and video experiences to increase the lifetime of your content or for safety, monitoring, and compliance review

Agora’s Recording lets you capture and record audio and video experiences in the way that best meets your needs. You can record on the cloud or on-premise; record separate audio and video streams, multiple streams, or even uploaded files with the stream, using the layout you choose; and export the recorded streams, add watermarks, or use snapshots from them in real time for content moderation.

Please select use case:

Record classes for teacher evaluations or student review.

Use Agora’s Recording product to make it easier to review teacher performance, allow students to make up classes they missed, or give students an opportunity to review material before tests.

Recording helps you keep video content safe.

While you may publish guidelines for behavior, it can be challenging to enforce them. Agora’s Recording takes snapshots every five seconds in social live streams and analyzes the snapshots to monitor video content in real time.

Record customer service interactions to monitor quality.

Supervisors can’t listen in on every call, and it can be challenging to determine whose perspective is accurate when conflicts arise. Recording customer service interactions creates archives to verify what was said, and makes it easier to review company representatives’ performance.

Bring the full conference experience online.

When it’s impractical or inconvenient for people to gather in a physical space, take the conference online.

Agora’s Real-Time Messaging lets you build conferencing apps that provide texting, whiteboarding, media file sharing, and all the other tools hosts, presenters, and attendees need to make the most of an event.

What’s more, RTM lets you monitor channel status, including the number of participants; provide active speaker control; and more.

Add call signaling to IoT devices.

Make the Internet of Things more interactive.

With Agora’s Real-Time Messaging, you can integrate signaling services for call invitations, bi-directional monitoring and messaging control between apps and devices like smart watches, home security cameras, and other IoT devices.
