Not Just an Intelligent Global Network

Before you move on to learn more about SD-RTN™ and our cross-platform SDKs, check out these outstanding features that separate us from the pack.

Outstanding audio icon

Outstanding audio and video quality

Agora’s SD-RTN™ provides a smooth experience so your users can focus on their interaction—not the technology they’re using. Our SOLO™ and NOVA™ audio codecs ensure natural audio reproduction.

Advanced in-house algorithms provide adaptive resolution, while immediate initial video rendering and seamless channel switching provide a reliable stream without delay, against even the most challenging network conditions.

Full functionality

Agora gives you the best of both worlds: more functionality than CDN services and affordable pricing.

Our RTE Platform provides cross-channel co-hosting, enables real-time messaging features, and lets you monitor channel status in real-time.

Record multiple streams locally or on the cloud, controlling the audio and video quality as well as the recording layout. 

Our SD-RTN™ enables both local and server-side RTMP conversion for seamless integration with CDN services.

Fun and engaging effects

With smooth, reliable interactive streaming, you can start to have fun. Creative options keep users engaged and excited about coming back. Agora’s RTE Platform includes voice effects— from sound mixing to reverb—and the ability to include local background sound and sound effects. With AR facial masks and filtering, your users can even play with their physical appearance.

AI icon

AI-powered services

Take advantage of smart algorithms to improve the quality of engagement while reducing the need for human intervention. Use Agora’s adaptive noise cancelation to filter out ambient or unwanted noise so that voices come through crystal clear.

You can extend Agora’s platform capabilities with third-party services including facial recognition, AR facial mask, facial beautification, and more.
