If you have a GeForce RTX GPU, you should consider using the NVIDIA Broadcast app to enhance the voice and video capabilities of your devices. It’s an efficient and free app to upgrade your microphone, webcam and speaker. In this brief tutorial, we’ll show you how to use NVIDIA Broadcast app on your Windows 10 PC.
What is NVIDIA Broadcast?
NVIDIA Broadcast is an app developed for Windows 10 in order to improve the voice and video capabilities of RTX GPUs. If you’re into voice chats, video calls, or live streams, using the NVIDIA Broadcast app is an easy way to enhance your activities without adding or buying an extra gear.
The main features of NVIDA Broadcast app are the following:
NVIDIA Broadcast can easily remove background noise in your live chats or streams in order to make your voice clearer. Common background noise such as air condition unit or electric fan humming, distant dog barking, or room echoes are filtered out using AI.
Virtual background or blurring.
To add more fun, users can also customize their background using the virtual background feature. You can use your favorite background image or a compatible video for this purpose. You can also use a virtual green screen if you want. If you need a video background, make sure that it’s in mp4 format.
If you don’t want to use a virtual background, you can simply blur it.
NVIDIA Broadcast can track your movement and put you in the middle of the video all the time using its AI technology. The webcam auto frame feature works almost flawlessly although there’s minor video noise from time to time if you’re moving.
Advantages of using NVIDIA Broadcast
The advantages of NVIDIA Broadcast are obvious. First, this app is totally free so there’s no need to pay for another software that offers more or less the same capabilities such as transforming your home setup into a professional-looking “studio”
The other advantage of using the NVIDIA Broadcast app is its built-in integration with your existing NVIDIA GPU. Because it’s designed by the same company that manufactures your hardware, there’s less bugs and the app is stable. Bugs and fixes for them are released regularly by NVIDIA so any game-breaking bugs are non-existent in this app.
That said, having the NVIDIA Broadcast app in your PC eliminates the need to install additional third party software to enhance the video and voice quality of your livestream, video and voice calls.
What are the requirements to use NVIDIA Broadcast?
If you have no idea how to use NVIDIA Broadcast, the first thing that you must do is to ensure that you meet the system requirements for the app.
Below are the official requirements for NVIDIA Broadcast:
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, Quadro RTX 3000, TITAN RTX or higher
- RAM: 8GB RAM or higher
- CPU: Recommended: Intel Core i5 8600, AMD Ryzen r5 2600 or higher
- Driver: NVIDIA Studio Driver 462.46 or Game Ready Driver 465.89, and above
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
If you have an older computer with a non-RTX GPU, you won’t be able to use this app at all. However, if your main concern is noise removal for voice chats, you can use the RTX Voice app instead.
