Epic Teams with NVIDIA for Enterprise-Grade VR

Recommended Posts

Epic Games today announced it has teamed with NVIDIA to deliver enterprise-grade solutions to help application developers create better, more immersive VR experiences.

Enterprise businesses have been among the most enthusiastic adopters of VR to improve production workflows, visualize CAD designs, boost safety and training, and create better experiences for customers. This requires sophisticated and reliable VR platforms and tools.

To ease enterprise VR adoption, Epic has integrated NVIDIA Quadro professional GPUs into the test suite for Unreal Engine 4, the company's real-time toolset for creating applications across PC, console, mobile, VR and AR platforms. This ensures NVIDIAtechnologies integrate seamlessly into developers' workflows, delivering excellent results for everything from CAVEs and multi-projection systems through to enterprise VR and AR solutions.

"With our expanding focus on industries outside of games, we've aligned ourselves ever more closely with NVIDIA to offer an enterprise-grade experience," said Marc Petit, general manager of the Unreal Engine Enterprise business. "NVIDIA Quadro professional GPUs empower artists, designers and content creators who need to work unencumbered with the largest 3D models and datasets, tackle complex visualization challenges, and deliver highly immersive VR experiences. By combining NVIDIA hardware with Unreal Engine, developers are ensured excellent performance and productivity."

One project that has driven this effort is Epic's collaboration with GM and The Mill on "The Human Race," a real-time short film and mixed reality experience featuring a configurable Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, which was built using NVIDIA Quadro pro graphics.

Another company that has benefitted from Epic's collaboration with NVIDIA is Theia Interactive a pioneer of real-time architectural visualization. Stephen Phillips, CTO of Theia, added, "NVIDIA Quadro provides an incredible amount of computing power for running beautiful VR experiences within Unreal Engine. Having 24GB of VRAM allows us to use hundreds of high-resolution, uncompressed lightmaps for incredible real-time architectural visualizations that rival the quality of the finest offline renderers."

"As the market for VR and AR content expands, professional developers in industries such as automotive, architecture, healthcare and others are using Unreal Engine to create amazing immersive experiences," said Bob Pette, vice president of Professional Visualization at NVIDIA. "Unreal, from version 4.16, is the first real-time toolset to meet NVIDIA Quadro partner standards. Our combined solution provides leaders in these markets the reliability and performance they require for the optimum VR experience."

      Oculus CTO John Carmack has posted the latest Public VR Critique: Daedalus, running on the Gear VR. Daedalus is a platformer and exploration game set in a surrealist world. 
      Carmack appears to really enjoy this game, mentioning that at "OC4, one of the VR apps presented for my review session was Daedalus...I played through the first couple training segments on stage, giving some of my common feedback, but what was noteworthy was that I didn't want to quit - I had to make myself stop to get on to the rest of the slate lined up."
      In the critique, Carmack covers Daedalus' gameplay, artistic feel, and the pros/cons of the art style in mobile VR. He also reviews performance on Gear VR:

      This video is a real alpha gameplay video.
      LAST HILLS is a work that I am developing with being inspired by horror movies, especially, Conjuring, and Evil Dead.
      LAST HILLS will be a game where you can enjoy high quality, real, and fear in mood that you are in the game. LAST HILLS will become a more realistic horror game through VR.
      Thank you!
