YOUR RENDERING WORKFLOW JUST GOT A LOT FASTER
Run industry-standard applications and GPU-accelerated renderers on NVIDIA VCA to turbocharge your results. NVIDIA VCA allows designers to make critical adjustments or design decisions quickly, while reducing reliance on costly physical prototypes or overnight renders – saving precious time in brining your ideas to market. Ideal solution for automakers, consumer-product manufacturers, and other design-intensive disciplines, NVIDIA VCA supports some of the most popular renderers.
NVIDIA® Iray®: A photorealistic rendering solution licensed to leading software manufacturers like Dassault Systèmes and Autodesk and integrated within tools like Bunkspeed, Catia and 3ds Max. Plugins are also available for applications like Maya. Use your favorite Iray-enabled application, connect to the NVIDIA VCA, and enjoy the fastest photorealistic rendering experience possible. You can also combine multiple NVIDIA VCAs to improve interactive quality until the experience is like walking around a physical model, catching every nuance of light and reflection as you manipulate the model or scene. This is made possible with an Iray rendering mode exclusive to NVIDIA VCA that keeps the entire visual computing cluster contributing equally as modifications are made.
