Avaya wraps in NVIDIA AI

1 min read Cloud Collaboration
Avaya is integrating cloud AI solutions from NVIDIA into its Avaya Spaces app. This will improve visual, audio and collaborative experiences within the software.

Avaya Spaces is a video collaboration app that brings groups of people together in immersive workspaces where they can message, meet, share content, manage tasks, and collaborate in the cloud. It is used by businesses, schools, governments, and organisations in nearly 100 countries. Combining NVIDIA Maxine with Avaya Spaces will deliver background noise removal, virtual green screen backgrounds, and live transcriptions.

“Video communication has become an essential tool for everyone working and studying remotely,” explained Ian Buck, vice president and general manager of accelerated computing at NVIDIA. “With the NVIDIA Maxine software platform running on NVIDIA GPU computing in the cloud, Avaya Spaces customers will be able to enjoy more engaging video conferencing experiences with real-time AI features that can stream easily to millions of laptops, tablets and mobile phones.”

The NVIDIA Maxine cloud-native streaming video AI platform features cloud-based audio, video, and conversational software that enhances the video conferencing user experience. This reduces end-user device requirements, so these advanced features can be accessed by Avaya customers without the need for specialised hardware.

Anthony Bartolo, executive vice president and chief product officer at Avaya, added, “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.”
