NVIDIA’s tool to enhance both live streaming and video conferencing just got even better. The Broadcast app has transformed the homes, apartments, and dorm rooms of millions of content creators, remote students, and workers into home studios through the power of AI. All without the need to purchase specialized equipment. The latest upgrade, NVIDIA Broadcast version 1.3, is available to download today and further improves noise removal, adds more camera compatibility, and reduces the impact on overall system performance.
NVIDIA Broadcast’s noise removal AI effect has been widely praised for its ability to remove background noise while keeping speech clear and crisp. The exception? When someone speaks with a lot of emotion—typically speaking loudly or at a higher pitch—and through this, their speech is sometimes inadvertently removed. This rarely happens but is typically at the peak moments of excitement during a Livestream. The new update addresses this with dedicated training sound profiles to retain that speech while removing the unwanted background noise.
The community frequently requests more support for video devices. Now many of your favourite professional and virtual cameras, as well as capture cards, are compatible with NVIDIA Broadcast—including Canon EOS Webcam Utility, Nikon Webcam Utility, Sony Webcam Utility, OBS Virtual Camera, and more.
With version 1.2, Nvidia added the ability for users to stack effects. VRAM could become limited when multitaskers run AI features for their microphone, speakers and camera simultaneously. Version 1.3 reduces VRAM usage by over 40%, leading to an increase in FPS while gaming.
Finally, Nvidia has several new UI elements and bug fixes that round out a better, smoother, NVIDIA Broadcast experience.
In order to use NVIDIA Broadcast effects in these apps, users must install the NVIDIA Broadcast redistributable package and update apps to the latest version.
And remember, GeForce GPU owners also have direct access to the NVIDIA Encoder (NVENC), an independent section of the GPU where encoding gets offloaded to. It’s used by OBS Studio, XSplit, Streamlabs, Discord, and more to improve streaming performance.
Presuming you already have Nvidia Broadcast installed, a quick check of the app should prompt you to download and install the latest 1.3 version update. However, if it does not, or you are looking to try this out for the first time, you can check out the official software website via the link here!
