visage|SDK™ integrates a comprehensive range of computer vision and character animation technologies in an easy-to-use, fully documented Software Development Kit to support a wide area of applications.
Computer Vision applied to human face
visage|SDK™ FaceTrack, HeadTrack and FaceDetect packages offer powerful technologies to find and track the human face and its features (mouth, eyes, eyebrows, nose…) in still images or video. In visage|SDK™ these techniques can directly be used to drive the face animation of the virtual character in real time, but they can also be used for a number of other applications including Augmented Reality (Magic Mirror – virtual eyewear, headwear etc.), assistive technologies, identification technologies, view-dependent rendering, view control in gaming, person tracking, facial expression analysis etc.
Human-like or cartoon-like virtual characters (avatars) are essential in games, virtual worlds and computer animation. They are being deployed as virtual assistants, salespersons, newscasters, teachers or hosts in various products and services. visage|SDK™ makes it much easier to integrate virtual characters into virtually any product or service. With this purpose, it offers a comprehensive set of core features, plus a choice of techniques to drive character animation:
- visual speech synthesis from plain text (Visual TTS) Read more →
- lip sync from recorded speech or microphone Read more →
- facial feature tracking in recorded or live video (motion capture) Read more →
Modular design based on MPEG-4 International Standard
visage|SDK™ is built upon the MPEG-4 Face and Body Animation (MPEG-4 FBA) International Standard. The use of MPEG-4 FBA parameters in all modules enables sharing and reusing of character animation accross platforms, applications and face/body models and easier integration with other products.
visage|SDK™ is licensed for development and deployment/distribution under various licensing models to satisfy the requirements of a wide range of applications and business models. Please contact us to discuss the best options to fit your project.
While visage|SDK™ integrates a very wide range of technologies, they are available in separately licensed packages to ensure maximal licensing flexibility for our clients:
|FaceTrack||Head- and facial features tracking in video (motion capture)||Windows, iOS, Android (BETA)||→|
|HeadTrack||Head tracking in video||Windows, iOS, Android (BETA)||→|
|FaceDetect||Facial features detection in still images||Windows, iOS, Android (BETA)||→|
|LipSync||Real time automatic lip sync||Windows||→|
Speed up your development
visage|SDK™ is delivered with extensive and very detailed documentation, example projects with documented source code, tools and ready-to-use virtual characters, animations and other sample files – everything needed to give you a quick start with your project.
