NVIDIA uses Tensor cores for AI-powered greenscreen for streamers

NVIDIA has just announced its new RTX Broadcast Engine, a new gaming-focused feature that taps the Tensor Cores available on Turing GPUs inside of the GeForce RTX series of graphics cards.


RTX BRoadcast Engine will be capable of live filters, greenscreening, and other game-focused features for Twitch streamers. NVIDIA is doing some impressive stuff here as it can fully remove the background from your stream with RTX Greenscreen, replacing whatever is behind you with gameplay, or something else entirely.

NVIDIA explains in a press release: "The RTX Greenscreen AI model understands which part of an image is human and which is background, so gamers get the benefits of a greenscreen without needing to buy one".

This wouldn't even be a thing if it wasn't going to include OBS support, with NVIDIA to support the service "in a few months".

RTX Broadcast Engine also touts some AR goodness, something that will use your webcam to detect your face and then track facial movement. NVIDIA lets you overlay your expressions and speech onto a 3D character, similar to what we find on flagship smartphones.

Expect more details from NVIDIA leading into TwitchCon 2019.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
