What is NVIDIA Broadcast?

NVIDIA Broadcast is an application that leverages AI technology to improve the quality of live broadcasts, video calls, and audio chats. It can upgrade ordinary webcams and microphones into high-end smart devices, with multiple AI functions such as noise reduction, echo cancellation, virtual background, portrait tracking and video denoising. Equipped with Tensor Core dedicated AI processor on NVIDIA RTX GPU, it can run high-quality effects in real time.

Does NVIDIA Broadcast provide multiple effects?

The NVIDIA Broadcast app includes the following: - Noise Cancellation: Uses AI technology to remove background noise picked up by the microphone, including loud clicks of mechanical keyboards and doorbells. The AI network can even process other people's voices, setting friends who turn on the free mic into noise reduction mode.

- Echo Cancellation: Filter room reflections and reverberation through AI for clearer audio output.

- Virtual background: Use AI technology to eliminate the background captured by the camera and replace it with game scenes or other images, and can also subtly blur the background image.

- Portrait Tracking: Applies AI technology to track head movement, automatically crops and scales the head frame, and keeps the frame centered even when you are moving.

- Video Noise Reduction: Improve the picture quality of the webcam and eliminate the noise generated when the light is low, so as to obtain a clearer picture effect.

Can I use multiple effects at the same time?

sure! NVIDIA has introduced the ability to run multiple AI effects simultaneously for each device. You can use two effects at the same time for the microphone, speaker and/or camera, up to a maximum of six effects at the same time. Note that using multiple effects at the same time may tax the system.

What is video denoising?

Video denoising is an AI effect that reduces video noise that typically occurs in low-light conditions. This effect is useful for webcams whose sensors often produce video noise, resulting in poor quality images from the input source. Video denoising removes video noise and provides higher picture quality similar to high-end cameras.

What is the difference between noise cancellation and room echo cancellation?

Room Echo Cancellation is an AI effect that reduces room echoes (or reverberation) in audio. Typically, echoes occur if the room is not soundproofed. This effect is especially useful if you're working or studying in a small room and don't have proper soundproofing.

What devices is NVIDIA Broadcast compatible with?

NVIDIA Broadcast works with most PC microphones, speakers, headsets and webcams, supporting many popular brands and their latest models, such as Logitech, ElGato, AverMedia, Razer, Asus, HyperX, SteelSeries, Rode and Bose, etc. Even supports Apple Airpods! If your device already has a similar feature to NVIDIA Broadcast (such as denoising), make sure to turn it off to avoid reapplying the same effect.

What applications is NVIDIA Broadcast compatible with?

NVIDIA Broadcast is compatible with a variety of streaming, video conferencing and voice chat applications, including OBS Studio, Streamlabs, XSplit Broadcaster, Twitch Studio, Huya, Douyu, Bilibili, Discord, TeamSpeak, Skype, Zoom, Webex, Microsoft Teams, Slack , Google Meet, Bluejeans, and more.

How to enable NVIDIA Broadcast function?

Basically NVIDIA Broadcast creates a virtual Windows camera, microphone or speaker on your PC that will appear as available devices in your video or voice chat applications. Simply enable this feature within the NVIDIA Broadcast app, then select the NVIDIA Broadcast device from the video or voice chat application. If you want to learn more, please refer to our setup guide.

So, what are the system requirements for the NVIDIA Broadcast feature?

- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, Quadro RTX 3000, TITAN RTX or stronger GPU


- OS: Windows 10 (64 bit)

- Drivers: NVIDIA Studio Driver 462.46, Game Ready Driver 465.89, NVIDIA RTX Enterprise Driver 462.59 and above

- CPU: Intel Core i5 8600, AMD Ryzen r5 2600 or higher recommended

- Stay online during installation

Why is an Internet connection required to install NVIDIA Broadcast?

Because during the installation process, NVIDIA Broadcast needs to download the latest AI model for your GPU to ensure that you are getting the latest version, and to minimize the download, only download the models required by your GPU.

If you need to download NVIDIA Broadcast, you can go tothe official website to download it.
