NVIDIA launches Omniverse cloud services to power the Metaverse
NVIDIA, a world leader in artificial intelligence, announced Omniverse Cloud Services, a suite of cloud services for artists, developers and enterprise teams to design, publish, operate and experience Metaverse applications.
Omniverse Cloud users can work individually and in teams to design and collaborate on 3D workflows without the need for any local compute power. Early supporters of Omniverse Cloud include RIMAC Group, WPP and Siemens, according to NVIDIA.
Omniverse Cloud Services features include:
Omniverse Nucleus Cloud, which enables 3D designers and teams to collaborate and access a shared Universal Scene Description (USD)-based 3D scene and data from anywhere.
Omniverse Replicator, which allows researchers, developers and enterprises to generate physically accurate 3D data and integrate them with computer vision and robotics.
Omniverse Farm, which enables enterprises to harness multiple cloud compute instances to scale workloads.
NVIDIA Isaac Sim, which is a scalable robotics simulation application and data generation tools that generates virtual environments to develop and test AI-based robots.
‘The next evolution of the internet called the metaverse will be extended with 3D,’ said Richard Kerris, vice president of the Omniverse at Nvidia, in a press briefing.
‘Now to understand what the impact of that is going to be, the traditional internet that we know today connects websites described in HTML and viewed through a browser. The metaverse is going to be the evolution of that internet connecting virtual 3D worlds using USD, or universal scene description,’ he added.
