Background removal and blur in a real-time video are in high demand in 2021. Their implementation can be comparable with the snowball effect. This avalanche will eventually sweep all platforms for video meetings. This fact is confirmed by the experience of market leaders that have already implemented such tools. For instance, Google has added Mobile Real-Time Video Segmentation to Google’s Broad Augmented Reality Services. Microsoft Teams has also been using similar instruments since 2018. Skype introduced the functionality in April 2020.

Let’s try to dig deeper to understand the reasons for the growing demand for computer vision solutions, including real-time…

WebRTC developers mention that it is simple yet complex technology. The essence of simplicity comes down to the ease of implementation. It’s possible to use five to ten lines of code to organize peer-to-peer video communication between two browsers. At the same time, there is always a “but” when we work with technologies.
