owards Advanced Automated Game Testing with AI

Physics, Materials, and Rendering in Omniverse

NVIDIA Omniverse encompasses over 20 years of NVIDIA core technologies, including advanced physics simulation, rendering technologies, and AI. The 3D design collaboration and simulation platform transforms creator workflows by allowing artists and engineers to connect and create virtual worlds.

Towards Advanced Automated Game Testing with AI

Connecting 3D Creators in the Cloud

NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud allows for one-click collaboration and sharing across multiple users without maintaining an infrastructure, making linear import-export workflows between creators a thing of the past.

Beyond Game Streaming: Cloud-native Games

Building Interactive, 3D AI Avatars

The Omniverse Avatar platform lets you generate interactive avatars through the use of NVIDIA Maxine and various other technologies in speech AI, natural language understanding, and simulation. The capabilities of these avatars span customer support, personal concierge, challenging Q&A, and more.

Gaming’s Next Global Hotspot

Building the Next Great Game with NVIDIA Nsight Tools

Create, profile, launch your application with Nsight developer tools. Watch the demo on how Nsight tools provide various functionalities to build world-class experiences.

3D Reconstruction for Game Development

NVIDIA Omniverse: Exploring DeepSearch with Activision

Companies like Activision have extremely large asset catalogs that have been built up over many years, by many teams—and will continue to grow. The NVIDIA Omniverse platform's AI and advanced rendering capabilities allow Activision to search through thousands of Call of Duty assets. Omniverse "Deep Search" makes searching through 3D assets completely intuitive, while Omniverse RTX Renderer's real-time path-traced rendering displays the search results in ultra-high fidelity, providing environmental lighting based on the game level.
