NVIDIA announced the coming general availability of NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise, a technology platform that enables global 3D design teams working across multiple software suites to collaborate in real time in a shared virtual space.
NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise makes it possible for 3D production teams, which are often geographically dispersed, to work seamlessly together on complex projects. Rather than requiring in-person meetings or exchanging and iterating on massive files, designers, artists and reviewers can work simultaneously in a virtual world from anywhere, on any device.
NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise has been in early evaluations with design teams at companies like BMW Group, Foster + Partners, and WPP. It follows the launch three months ago of an open beta for individuals.
Said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA, “Building on NVIDIA’s entire body of work, Omniverse lets us create and simulate shared virtual 3D worlds that obey the laws of physics. The immediate applications of Omniverse include connecting design teams for remote collaboration to simulating digital twins of factories and robots.”
Omniverse Enterprise includes the NVIDIA Omniverse Nucleus server, which manages the database shared among clients, and NVIDIA Omniverse Connectors, which are plug-ins to industry-leading design applications.
It also includes two end-user applications: NVIDIA Omniverse Create , which accelerates scene composition and allows users in real time to interactively assemble, light, simulate, and render scenes, and NVIDIA Omniverse View, which powers seamless collaborative design and visualization of architectural and engineering projects with photorealistic rendering. NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) software, also part of the platform, gives collaborators the freedom to run their graphics- intensive 3D applications from anywhere.
Omniverse Enterprise is tested and optimized for professionals to run on NVIDIA RTX laptops and desktops, and NVIDIA-Certified Systems on the NVIDIA EGX platform. This makes it possible to deploy the tool across organizations of any scale, from small workgroups using local desktops and laptops, to globally distributed teams accessing the data center using various devices.
NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise software is available on a subscription basis and includes NVIDIA’s Enterprise support services. NVIDIA’s partner network of leading computer makers — including ASUS, BOXX Technologies, Cisco, Dell Technologies, HP, Lenovo and Supermicro — are supporting NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise.
