NVIDIA CloudXR

Streaming for extended reality.

Enterprises are integrating augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) into their workflows to drive design reviews, virtual production, location-based entertainment, and more. NVIDIA CloudXR, a groundbreaking innovation built on NVIDIA RTX technology, delivers VR and AR across 5G and Wi-Fi networks. With NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation software, CloudXR is fully scalable for data center and edge networks. The CloudXR SDK comes with an installer for server components and open-source client applications for streaming extended reality (XR) content from OpenVR applications to Android and Windows devices.

Now Available: CloudXR 3.2

Explore the latest features and developments, get details on the application process, and apply for the SDK.

Reimagine augmented and virtual realities with CloudXR

Drive Powerful VR and AR Over High-Performance Networks

Drive Powerful VR and AR Over High-Performance Networks

CloudXR breaks the confines of traditional VR and AR, delivering streaming of XR content to untethered devices with a level of fidelity that’s indistinguishable from native tethered configurations. The CloudXR lets you leverage NVIDIA RTX powered servers with GPU virtualization software to stream stunning augmented and virtual reality experiences from any OpenVR application. This means you can run the most complex VR and AR experiences from a remote server across 5G and Wi-Fi networks to any device, while embracing the freedom to move—no wires, no limits.

Uncompromising Performance and Mobility

Uncompromising Performance and Mobility

To access the rendering power needed to drive the richest immersive environments, current professional VR/AR solutions require a physical tether to a high-performance computer. NVIDIA RTX GPUs powering CloudXR encode and stream the visuals to a thin Windows or Android client device. By dynamically adjusting to network conditions, CloudXR maximizes image quality and frame rates while minimizing effective latency and stuttering.

Stream from the Edge

Stream AR, VR, and XR from the Edge

The next generation of mobile networks offers ultra-low latencies that will expand the world of augmented and virtual reality. Running servers powered by RTX technology on the edge with CloudXR yields remarkable performance for streaming graphics. By utilizing the high bandwidth and low latency of 5G networks, you can stream expansive VR and AR experiences to professional users at the edge.

Telco-Grade Manageability, Security, and Multi-Tenancy

Telco-Grade Manageability, Security, and Multi-Tenancy

CloudXR combines the performance of the EGX Platform with NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) software to securely enable multi-tenant deployments, a common requirement among telecommunications (telco) and service providers. GPU virtualization also allows multiple virtual machines to access a GPU when the workload is lighter, optimizing for user density and operating costs. Manageability is streamlined with support for both VMware and Red Hat virtualization platforms and supporting management tools.  

Merge Hardware and Software with a Revolutionary DevKit

Merge Hardware and Software with a Revolutionary DevKit

Driving virtualized XR experiences from the edge requires expertise across cloud orchestration, visual computing and AI, virtualization, 5G network operations, and more. Visualization is streamlined at the edge with the NVIDIA EGX Platform CloudXR 5G MEC DevKit, a full stack hardware and software solution powered by NVIDIA. Supported by NVIDIA-certified systems, the DevKit combines NVIDIA RTX GPUs with RTX vWS software, the CloudXR SDK, and third-party applications, so developers can run VR, AR, and virtual GPU experiments across 5G and Wi-Fi networks.
