3D News

We’re fortunate enough to have another fine 3D video from New Media Film Festival to share with you here on 3DVisionLive—a pop music video from Italy called “The Way,” which you can view here. Even better, New Media Film Festival has provided an interview with one of the co-directors of the video, Edoardo Ballanti, which provides insights on how the video was created and the vision behind it. Enjoy! (Alice Corsi also co-directed the video.) What was the Inspiration behind “...
The Fall Photo Contest received nearly 100 images – thanks to all that entered! The contest called for your best “nature” shots with the only other requirement being that they had to be true stereo images. Submissions ranged from shots of spiders in gardens to artistic approaches to tasteful nudes. As before, members were invited to vote for the winner by tagging images in the contest gallery as favorites. Without further ado, the winner is: Autumn Goodbye to Summer This...
In driver 334.89 NVIDIA introduced a new proprietary rendering mode for 3D Vision that enables us to improve the 3D experience for many key DirectX 10 and 11 games. This mode is now called “3D Compatibility Mode”. We have continued to iterate on this feature in beta driver 337, increasing game support and adding a toggle key to enable/disable the mode. Games with 3D Compatibility Mode will launch in this mode by default. To change the render mode back to standard 3D Vision...
3DVisionLive’s first-ever short-form 3D video contest received 14 entries that showed a great deal of diversity, ranging from video game captures to commercial-style clips to raw captures of pets or people doing cool things (such as bashing each other with swords). During judging we laughed, we cried (okay, maybe not), and we simply scratched our heads…. But seriously: thank-you to all that participated and we hope to see more of your content uploaded to the site for all to...
The submission period for the Fall Photo Contest is now closed, and we are happy to report we’ve received nearly 100 images from our members for consideration. And, once again, we’re opening the judging process to our community as well to help us determine the winners. The full gallery of images may be seen by clicking the link above. Between now and February 10th (11:59 PST), please view all of the images in the gallery and place your votes for the ones you’d like to win by...

There’s no better way to leave Las Vegas than with a big bag of loot.

We left the annual International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week with more than twenty awards for everything from dazzling new Big Format Gaming Display to our sophisticated NVIDIA DRIVE automotive AI platform.

The awards mirror the story we brought with us to CES: we’re transforming gaming, television and transportation, and bringing modern AI — powered by GPUs — to cars, homes and the cloud.

In the fast-growing PC gaming business, we won 10 awards alone for BFGD — which delivers silky-smooth gaming and entertainment on enormous 4K HDR screens. Our automotive business also won big, underscoring partnerships with everyone from automaker VW to ride-sharing service Uber and search giant Baidu.

Here’s our latest tally of awards from this year’s CES.

Chery, one of China’s leading automakers, is adopting the new ZF ProAI system, powered by NVIDIA DRIVE AI self-driving technology, to bring Level 3 autonomous driving to the world’s biggest auto market.

The news was announced today at the North American International Auto Show, in Detroit, by Konstantin Sauer, CEO of ZF, one of the world’s biggest auto parts suppliers.

Chery road testing its intelligent interconnected cars.

Chery, which makes cars, minivans and SUVs, will be the first Chinese carmaker to adopt the new ZF ProAI system, developed by NVIDIA, Baidu and ZF.

For over two decades, Chery has been making vehicles for the Chinese market, as well as for more than 80 countries globally. The company has earned a reputation for bringing advanced technologies to its highly affordable, entry-level models.

“This collaboration will democratize autonomous driving functions in one of the most important automotive markets of the world and bring autonomous driving for everyone,” said Sauer.

At CES 2018 last week, NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang highlighted our partnership with Baidu and ZF to move autonomous vehicles from development into production. Together, the companies are pioneering advances in deep learning and AI to create the first AI autonomous vehicle computing platform for China.

A Trifecta of Automotive Technology

Powering the ZF ProAI is the NVIDIA DRIVE Xavier AI car computer. Xavier is the world’s most complex and advanced SoC, capable of performing 30 deep learning TOPS (trillions of operations per second), using only 30 watts of power.

NVIDIA DRIVE Xavier cranks through 30 TOPS at just 30 watts.

ZF, a leader in automotive safety, brings expertise for system integration of the car computer and sensors. ZF ProAI will process inputs from multiple cameras, plus lidar and radar, paint a 360-degree view around the vehicle, locate it on an HD map, and find a safe path through traffic.

Baidu’s Apollo open autonomous driving platform provides a comprehensive, secure and reliable all-in-one solution that supports all major features and functions of an autonomous vehicle.
