NVIDIA Broadcast Application FAQ

March 10th, 2023

What is NVIDIA Broadcast?

NVIDIA Broadcast is an application that transforms any space into a home studio by leveraging the power of AI to upgrade ordinary webcams and microphones into high-end smart devices. Improve the quality of live video and audio with AI features such as microphone denoising, room echo cancellation, virtual backgrounds, portrait tracking, and video denoising. AI networks can run high-quality effects in real time with a dedicated AI processor called Tensor Core on NVIDIA RTX GPUs.

When not live, such features also enhance video conference calls and voice chats, making NVIDIA Broadcast the ideal AI companion for everyone.

Can NVIDIA Broadcast deliver multiple effects at the same time?

NVIDIA Broadcast applications include.

- Noise Removal: Use AI to remove background noise from microphone sources, including loud taps from mechanical keyboards and doorbells, etc. AI networking can even be used to handle other people's voices, setting friends with free mics on to noise reduction mode.

- Room Echo Removal: Use AI to filter room echoes or reverberations for clearer audio output.

- Virtual Background:Using AI technology you can eliminate the background captured by the camera and replace it with a game or other image, or you can do a clever blurring process.

- Auto Frame: Use AI technology to track your head movement, automatically cropping and scaling the head frame to always keep it centered even when you're walking around.

- Video Noise Removal: Improve the picture quality of your webcam and eliminate noise in low light conditions for a clearer picture.

Note: The new "Echo Cancellation" and "Video Denoising" effects in version 1.2 are currently in beta.

Can I use multiple effects at the same time?

Of course! In version 1.2.0, we introduced the ability to run multiple AI effects per device. You can use two effects at the same time for the microphone, speaker and/or camera, for a total of up to six effects at the same time.

Please note that combining multiple effects can increase the load on your system.

What is video denoising?

Video Noise Removal is an AI effect that reduces video noise that normally occurs in low light conditions. This effect is useful for webcams, whose sensors often generate video noise, producing a low quality input source picture. Video denoising eliminates video noise and provides a higher picture quality similar to that of high-end cameras.

What is the difference between denoising and room echo cancellation?

Room echo cancellation is an AI effect that reduces room echo (or reverberation) in your audio. This usually happens if there is no soundproofing in the space. This effect is especially useful if the user is working or studying from home in a smaller room without proper soundproofing.

What devices is NVIDIA Broadcast compatible with?

NVIDIA Broadcast works with most PC microphones, speakers or headsets, and webcams. These include the latest models from popular manufacturers such as Logitech, ElGato, AverMedia, Razer, Asus, HyperX, SteelSeries, Rode, and Bose, and it's even compatible with Apple Airpods!

If your device has features similar to NVIDIA Broadcast (such as denoising), be sure to turn it off to avoid trying to apply the same effect twice.

What applications is NVIDIA Broadcast compatible with?
