Facebook acquires a German computer vision startup

© Provided by Engadget Facebook’s latest startup acquisition is German computer vision company Fayteq, a company that develops plugins for editing applications like Adobe After Effects that let you add or remove objects from existing video. After the purchase, Fayteq added a note on its website notifying customers that its products and services were no longer available for purchase.

Other recent Facebook acquisitions include Source3, the expertise of which Facebook plans to direct towards hunting down video piracy, and AI startup Ozlo. Fayteq’s technology could be put to use in various video features like Facebook Live or Stories or it could be worked into the company’s Camera Effects Platform, which includes a developer tool for generating AR effects.

Details about the acquisition are slim, but Facebook did confirm the deal to numerous sources after German publication Deutsche Startups first reported the news.
