Vgency helps organizations to understand and control the impact of AI on video and voice communication

We are entering a new era of communication where AI technologies improve and alter video and voice data for a better audiovisual experience.

Verification for the Metaverse

Virtualization of image and sound form the foundation for Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality and the Metaverse to expand our perception of reality. The Metaverse and its variants offer fascinating possibilities as well as serious threats.

Deepfake is recognized as an AI technology for malicious picture and sound manipulation that threatens all official communication. Useful image and voice manipulations leverage similar AI to optimize the audiovisual experience. Such optimization features are described in nice sounding marketing language while Deepfake typically stands for malicious use of AI to create synthetic video and voice.
