NVIDIA is re-purposing their Tensor cores by creating its new RTX Broadcast Engine.
The new SDKs will enable virtual green-screen style filters and augmented reality effects, Allowing for the kind of techniques used by major broadcast networks, all using AI and without the need for special equipment.
This new engine powered by NVIDIA’s RTX Tensor cores will allow that budding streamer to up his game without investing in special cameras or other expensive equipment the streamer new to the scene may not be able to invest in.
NVIDIA’s New SDKs Will Include:
RTX Green-screen, will deliver real-time background removal of a webcam feed, making it so only your face and body show up on the live-stream. The RTX Green-screen AI will know which part of the image is human and which part is background so you get the benefits of a green screen without having to buy one.
RTX AR, will be able to detect faces, it will even be able track your facial features such as eyes and mouth. The RTX AR will enable real-time augmented reality effects using a standard web camera.
RTX Style Filters, with the press of a hotkey, you can style your video feed with your favorite painting or game art.
NVIDIA Working With OBS
OBS is one of the leading life streaming applications so it makes sense that NVIDIA would want to partner with them to integrate the new SDK. The new green-screen effect will be showcased at TwitchCon this weekend but a release date has not yet been set. NVIDIA’s website says available in the coming months currently. So if you are a budding streamer and own an RTX card keep an eye out for the new Broadcast Engine from NVIDIA.
“NVIDIA has been at the top of my list when it comes to streaming and recording equipment. I’m continually impressed with what they’re doing,” said Hugh Bailey, author, OBS. “And their technology is impressive with RTX features like RTX Greenscreen.”
“The new RTX Broadcast Engine is an exciting advancement that will allow developers in our app store to create powerful new tools for streamers with NVIDIA RTX GPUs,” said Ali Moiz, CEO of Streamlabs. “We’re thrilled to continue working with NVIDIA as they introduce new features to the Streamlabs developer community, and look forward to implementing this new technology.”
