NVIDIA Broadcast App FAQ

  • What is NVIDIA Broadcast?

    NVIDIA Broadcast transforms any space into a home broadcast studio, upgrading standard webcams and microphones into premium smart devices through the power of AI. Improve the video and audio quality of your livestream with AI capabilities, such as virtual background, webcam auto frame, and microphone noise removal. With dedicated AI processors called Tensor Cores on GeForce RTX GPUs, the AI networks are able to run high-quality effects in real-time.


    When not broadcasting, these features can also enhance your video conference calls and voice chats, making NVIDIA Broadcast a perfect AI companion for anyone.

  • What effects are available in NVIDIA Broadcast?

    The NVIDIA Broadcast app includes:

    • Noise Removal: use AI to remove background noise from your microphone feed – be it a loud mechanical keyboard or doorbell ringing. The AI network can even be used on incoming audio feeds to mute that one friend who won’t turn on push-to-talk.
    • Virtual Background: use AI to remove the background of your webcam feed and replace it with game footage, a replacement image, or even a subtle blur.
    • Auto Frame: use AI to track your head movement, automatically cropping and zooming so you’re always in the frame, even as you move around.


    The new Virtual Background and Auto Frame camera features are being released in beta so the community can experience and provide feedback to help us improve them.

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


    Make sure that if your device has a similar feature to NVIDIA Broadcast (e.g. Noise Removal) you turn it off, so you don’t try to apply the same effect twice.
