NVIDIA Maxine is a suite of GPU-accelerated SDKs and cloud-native microservices for deploying AI features that enhance audio, video, and augmented reality effects for real-time communications services and platforms. Maxine’s state-of-the-art models create high-quality effects that can be achieved with standard microphones and webcams.
Three Maxine SDKs are available: Video Effects, Audio Effects, and Augmented Reality (AR).
In addition to what is available on NGC publicly, our Early Access Program contains additional SDK features and microservices available under the terms and conditions of that program. Apply today.
This collection houses publicly available Maxine SDK resources and the information needed to use them. These resources contain the SDK Programming Guides detailing the SDK-specific APIs, general feature-level description, and bare-metal installation. If you are interested in Maxine’s early access features, apply through our Early Access Program.
