NVIDIA announced CloudXR, a software development kit designed to help enterprises deliver virtual and augmented reality experiences from any application based on OpenVR across 5G networks to any device.
The SDK runs on NVIDIA servers located in the cloud or on-premises, delivering the graphics performance needed for wireless virtual, augmented or mixed reality environments — which collectively are known as XR.
Companies that have their own 5G networks can use NVIDIA CloudXR to stream immersive environments from their on-prem data centers. Telcos, software makers and device manufacturers can use 5G signals to provide high framerate, low-latency XR experiences to customers in more locations than previously possible.
Anyone can benefit from CloudXR using Windows and Android devices, including handheld tablets, VR headsets and AR glasses.
The SDK includes:
- Server driver that runs in the data center
- VClient library to enable VR/AR streaming for a multitude of OpenVR applications to Android and Windows devices
- SDK for portable client devices that let application developers stream rendered content from the cloud
These components work in tandem to dynamically optimize streaming parameters and maximize image quality and frame rates.
