SuperViz SDK vs Zoom SDK

Harnessing the Power of Immersive Collaboration

Technology has taken a giant leap forward in the era of remote work and digital collaboration. Two powerful solutions leading the market are the SuperViz SDK and the Zoom SDK.

Software Development Kits (SDKs) are integral to modern software development. They enable developers to add functionality to their applications without having to build everything from scratch, saving significant time and resources. Both SuperViz SDK and Zoom SDK provide developers with the tools to integrate video conferencing capabilities into their applications.

Although the SuperViz SDK and the Zoom SDK have many features in common, some key differences exist.

SuperViz SDK: Immersive Collaboration

If your team is dealing with 3D data or digital twins, SuperViz SDK is a game-changer. Unlike traditional video conferencing tools, SuperViz SDK is designed for immersive meetings in digital twin or 3D web applications. Here is where SuperViz shines, as it focuses not just on communication but also on a sense of presence.

With SuperViz, you can explore 3D environments together with your team in real-time. This is possible due to the integration of avatars, creating a unique sense of presence within the virtual space. It’s almost like being physically present in the same room, examining a 3D model from different perspectives, or walking through a digital twin of a real-world location. SuperViz’s immersive 3D collaboration capabilities make it a better choice for teams dealing with Digital Twins or 3D projects.

The SuperViz SDK synchronization server also syncs any properties within the project between the participants. This synchronization enhances collaboration across any content, even regular 2D applications. Participants can collaborate with shared mouse pointers and edit, manipulate, guide, or present a project or web application together.

Zoom SDK: Video Communication

On the other hand, Zoom SDK is a great tool for pure video communication. As SuperViz does, it also provides excellent video and audio quality, along with a host of features like screen sharing, recording, and more. Zoom’s straightforward user interface and robust API make it a popular choice for integrating simple video communication into applications.

However, while Zoom offers an impressive suite of features, it lacks the immersive capabilities offered by SuperViz. If your project primarily involves 2D data or traditional remote meetings, Zoom might be a suitable choice. But for teams needing a sense of presence and the ability to explore 3D environments collaboratively, SuperViz clearly takes the lead.


Choosing between SuperViz SDK and Zoom SDK comes down to your specific needs. If your product requires a collaborative experience or a sense of presence in Digital Twin or 3D environments, SuperViz SDK is the way to go. However, for more traditional video conferencing needs, Zoom SDK can be a reliable option too.

SuperViz SDK: Building Your Own Feature-Rich Meeting Solution Without a Plugin

If you are using a library or software such as Unreal Engine, Unity, Babylon.js etc. that doesn’t have an existing SuperViz plugin, you can still create a feature-rich SuperViz-enabled solution with the SuperViz SDK. The SDK is compatible with any web application, regardless of the underlying technology.

When you integrate the SDK, our solution handles all the standard meeting features by default. However, if you’re using the SuperViz SDK without a plugin, you’ll need to develop the following features as part of your custom implementation:

  • Avatars
  • Pointers
  • Lasers
  • Goto/Follow/Gather

To create a custom solution, you must meet certain requirements:

Positions and Avatars

Participant positions are crucial to the SuperViz experience. Ensure you distribute this data via our Realtime Data Engine so that all meeting attendees can see each other’s locations within the 3D environment. This data is also required for implementing Go-to, Follow, and Gather functionalities in your solution.

You must be able to retrieve and manipulate a user’s precise position (X, Y, Z) in the 3D world and send it to the Realtime Data Engine.

For custom solutions, you need to add the avatar yourself, as the SuperViz SDK cannot inject objects into your 3D environment without a plugin.

Here’s an example of sending and receiving user positions using the Realtime Data Engine:

					// subscribe
sdk.subscribe(userId, onUserXUpdated);

// receive
onUserXUpdated({ x, y, z }) {
  // update user X avatar with position x,y,z

// send
sdk.setSyncProperty(userId, { x: 0, y: 2, z: 0 });


To display mouse pointers or lasers during a meeting, follow the same process as described above. The only difference is that you’ll need access to each participant’s mouse position.



Creating a custom solution with the SuperViz SDK is straightforward and offers numerous possibilities. Position functionality is just a small aspect of what you can add to your experience. Synchronizing states, object views, and other features can truly set your solution apart from your competitors. With the SuperViz SDK, you can develop a fully customized, immersive, and interactive experience for your users.

Happy coding!

SuperViz SDK discussion of real-time synchronization

Real-Time Synchronization: the SuperViz SDK

SuperViz SDK discussion of real-time synchronization

Now there’s an easy way to build real-time synchronization for collaboration, presentations, guided tours and more, directly inside 3D web applications.

The SuperViz SDK enables multi-person telepresence as well as the ability to sync custom properties in meeting rooms – including 3D models, 2D content, States, Selections, Objects and anything else needed.

SuperViz CEO and Co-founder, Russ Rive, and VP of Engineering Tommy Lindestrøm, sat down for a series of conversations about the value of creating immersive experiences with a sense of presence. Here they discuss the benefits of building a collaboration layer with real-time synchronization.

Real-Time Synchronization vs. Screen Sharing

Build in immersive collaboration with real-time sync and you gain multiple benefits — for example, eliminating the need to screen share.

“With options like SuperViz, the whole visualization engine is loaded natively inside of everyone’s location. So each person is loading and rendering their own version of the browser of the 3D space, leading to perfect quality. It’s a huge jump in the quality of the experience and the quality of the visual,” says Rive.

Utilizing real-time synchronization means customers can access more efficient collaboration workflows while staying on your platform, eliminating slow-downs and poor performance… 

  • Screen share from a video conference sends only one point of view. There’s no sense of the other person being with you. 

  • Inferior image quality is frequent with screen sharing. Resolution is low and you get pixelation, especially if anyone has a choppy internet connection.

  • The need to screen share is an extra step that leads to customers juggling multiple tools. Syncing in real time provides a streamlined solution in a single platform.

What’s really exciting about this is that it’s more than just adding collaboration. It sounds sci-fi, but you’re building a virtual teleportation machine. Your web app becomes a space, a location, a place where people go and hang out, where they discuss projects as if they were there together,” Rive says. 

Add feature-rich immersive meetings, integrated collaboration, and guided tours with the SuperViz SDK. It’s the simplest way to add real-time interaction inside digital spaces with a sense of presence.

Getting started is easy. The SuperViz pricing structure provides maximum freedom and flexibility during product build-out and testing. There is no charge for the Starter plan which is designed for use during the development phase.

Why we built the SuperViz SDK and API

SuperViz Cofounder Russ Rive and VP of Engineering Tommy Lindestrom inside a SuperViz immersive meeting

The SuperViz SDK is designed to be the easiest way to add immersive collaboration with video conferencing and avatars to any 3D web application with just a few lines of code.

It enables people to meet directly inside remote locations and 3D content. All via browser.

We sat down with SuperViz CEO and Cofounder, Russ Rive, and VP of Engineering  Tommy Lindestrøm, for a series of conversations about the value of creating immersive experiences with a sense of presence and the benefits of building collaboration into web applications.

Here they share the backstory on the SuperViz SDK development: 

The SDK is fully customizable – companies can focus on building just the features they need, including:

  • Automatic multiplayer-enabled integration with avatars, pointers and controls
  • A full-function video conference layer for 16 people
  • Synchronized app properties in real time between meeting participants
  • Flexible avatar support for glb and GLTF models
  • Broadcast mode for up to 230 participants
  • Developer dashboard with detailed usage statistics and management

“When we first started the company a few years ago, there was an idea of creating something like an experience of teleportation with photo scans of a real-life location, or a designed virtual location, with the added ability to meet together remotely inside that digital space as if they were together,” says Rive.

The concept was to keep the advantages of meeting remotely, plus provide a sense of presence and enable each person to move around with an independent point of view. All with the ability to look and point and discuss as if they were really together in the space. 

The team realized early on that it needed to be something easy to access, easier than virtual reality at the time, so the tool was created to run in browsers and be accessible to everyone. The first approach was to create a space where people uploaded 360 photos and digital scans and had the capacity to activate embedded video conferencing meetings inside them, complete with avatars and freedom to move around the virtual space.

“The biggest request we got by far, though, was for us to make this work as an embedded feature inside customers’ platforms,” Rive shared. “It turns out the idea of immersive collaboration in 3D space is a very distributed problem.”

“And everyone’s process is a little bit different. Everyone’s got their tool, everyone’s got their scans… some people are already using a tool that has their workflow process built into it. And that’s when we started building integrations to support that.”

SuperViz’s approach with this was to start building for the most requested integrations… Matterport, BIM models, Sketchfab, 360 content. But that quickly became an endless list and a huge project for the team to maintain.

“So we started looking at how to enable other platforms and web applications that have 3D space data represented, to have these features inside of it, to make it really easy for other people to add this inside of their own product,” Rive says. 

That’s when the idea to create a SuperViz API and SDK came about, along with a much bigger mission – the concept that anyone out there that has a 3D application with a web viewer can turn it from single player into a collaborative, multiplayer experience with a sense of presence.

“Our next part of the goal then became, how can we make that so easy that someone within a week, one reasonably good developer could get the code, get it up, and have a proof of concept running in the application quickly.”

The integration can be up and running with just a few lines of code. It provides the simplest way to increase engagement by adding the capacity for real time face-to-face interaction inside digital spaces.
