From engineering and design to manufacturing, operations and sales, virtual reality in the enterprise is reshaping business as we know it.
On the leading edge of this change is the Nvidia VRWorks development kit. It’s a suite of application programming interfaces, libraries and engines that make it easy for developers to create amazing VR experiences.
To help companies integrate VR across their businesses, professional application developers like Autodesk, ESI Group and are integrating key features of Nvidia VRWorks into their applications. VRWorks technologies such as VR SLI, Single Pass Stereo and Lens Matched Shading help them improve the performance, efficiency and image quality of VR rendering. And VRWorks 360 Video, Audio and PhysX bring realistic sound, touch and physical simulations to their VR environments.
Plus, VRWorks includes a suite of features exclusive to the Quadro platform, including warp and blend, synchronization, GPU Affinity and GPUDirect for Video. Combining professional VR applications with Nvidia Quadro VR-ready provides unparalleled performance in VR experiences.
Autodesk uses VRWorks’ VR SLI and Single Pass Stereo in its VR solutions to help designers to feel the 3D presence of their product or model, see it at scale and identify early opportunities for iterative improvement, saving time and money.
For instance, design firms use Autodesk’s automotive design visualization software, VRED, for creating virtual prototypes and reviewing designs in VR. Autodesk’s Stingray rendering engine delivers real-time design visualizations and interactive VR experiences.
“With NVIDIA VRWorks, we were able to take advantage of the latest technology and performance enhancements in VR with the process to integrate scalable link interface rendering and Ansel integrations for Autodesk Stingray,” says Frank Delise, senior director of Interactive Experiences at Autodesk.
And that is just one example.
VRWorks Brings Reality to VR
By incorporating VR into its design process and virtually experiencing the many variants of shapes and materials and onboard technologies, Bentley Motors has been able to further perfect its cars and improve safety and quality for its customers.
The realism provided by OPTIS’ VR solutions was key. OPTIS has worked extensively with Nvidia to integrate PhysX for haptic feedback and VRWorks Audio to deliver greater perceived realism within 3D models.
“Seeing and experiencing a dataset or model in an accurate and authentic virtual space empowers those involved to contribute and make decisions where and when it matters,” says Jacques Delacour, CEO and founder of OPTIS. “With PhysX and Audio, we perfectly immerse designers into the virtual world so they can feel their future products.”
