NVIDIA CloudXR Suite

Streaming for extended reality.

The NVIDIA CloudXR™ Suite—combined with the power of NVIDIA RTX™ GPUs and NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS)—enables XR applications to stream high-fidelity extended reality (XR) to Android and iOS devices over performant networks. By dynamically adjusting to network conditions, CloudXR maximizes image quality and frame rates to power next-level, wireless AR and VR experiences.

CloudXR Components

CloudXR Essentials

This core component provides the underlying streaming layer, complete with new improvements such as L4S optimizations, QoS algorithms, and enhanced logging tools. 

CloudXR Server Extension

The Server component includes an expanded set of server-side interfaces, including current OpenVR and OpenXR industry standards, and a new high-performance native interface. These new APIs enable the scaling of XR distribution for MDM partners.

CloudXR Client Extension

This universal client—a Unity plug-in for CloudXR— is for Android-based HMDs. It allows developers to build custom CloudXR client apps with Unity development tools. 

New CloudXR Suite Releases Coming Soon

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. CloudXR lets you leverage NVIDIA RTX-powered servers with GPU virtualization software to stream stunning VR/AR experiences from any OpenVR application. This means you can run the most complex VR and AR experiences from a remote server across 5G and wifi networks to any device, while embracing the freedom to move—no wires, no limits.

Experience uncompromising performance and mobility.

Experience 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'll expand the world of AR and VR. 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.

Enjoy telco-grade manageability, security, and multi-tenancy.

Enjoy telco-grade manageability, security, and multi-tenancy.

CloudXR combines the performance of the NVIDIA EGX™ platform with NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) software to securely enable multi-tenant deployments—a common requirement among telecommunications 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.
