EasyAR SDK is an Augmented Reality Engine. There are two editions, EasyAR SDK Basic and EasyAR SDK Pro. 

EasyAR SDK Basic is free for commercial use. There is no limitations or any watermarks. It supports AR based on planar target, supports smooth load and recognition for more than 1000 local targets, supports video playback based on HW codecs, supports transparent video and streaming video, supports QR code recognition, supports tracking multi-target simultaneously.

EasyAR SDK Pro is a brand-new edition introduced in EasyAR SDK 2.0. All features inside EasyAR SDK Basic are available in EasyAR SDK Pro. And there are more features compared to EasyAR SDK Basic, including 3D object tracking, SLAM, and screen recording.

EasyAR SDK Pro is not free, pricing and payment details are listed on the EasyAR SDK product page. Free trial for EasyAR SDK Pro is provided. Each app will have limited startup times every day in the trial period.

EasyAR is a cross-platform AR SDK. The following OSes are supported

  • Windows 7 and above (7/8/8.1/10)
  • Mac OS X
  • Android 4.0 and above

More about the latest version of Android and iOS,

  • EasyAR SDK is compatiable with Android 8.0 (Android O), the latest version of Android at the point of EasyAR SDK 2.1 release
  • EasyAR SDK is compatiable with iOS 11, the latest version of iOS at the point of EasyAR SDK 2.1 release
