Dive into Technical Training with NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute
Here’s a preview of some DLI sessions you don’t want to miss:
Omniverse 101: Getting Started with Universal Scene Description for Collaborative 3D Workflows
This free self-paced training provides an introduction to USD. Go through a series of hands-on exercises consisting of training videos accompanied by live scripted examples, and learn about concepts like layer composition, references and variants.
Fundamentals of Ray Tracing Development using NVIDIA Nsight Graphics and NVIDIA Nsight Systems
With NVIDIA RTX and real-time ray-tracing APIs like DXR and Vulkan Ray Tracing, see how it’s now easier than ever to create stunning visuals at interactive frame rates. This instructor-led workshop will show audiences how to utilize NVIDIA Nsight graphics and NVIDIA Nsight Systems to profile and optimize 3D applications that are using ray tracing. Space is limited.
Graphics and Omniverse Teaching Kit
Designed for college and university educators looking to bring graphics and NVIDIA Omniverse into the classroom, this teaching kit includes downloadable teaching materials and online courses that provide the foundation for understanding and building hands-on expertise in graphics and Omniverse.
Discover the Latest Tools and Solutions in Our Virtual Demos
We’ll be showcasing how NVIDIA technology is transforming workflows in some of our exciting demos, including:
- Factory of the Future: Explore the next era of manufacturing with this demo, which showcases BMW Group’s factory of the future: designed, simulated, operated, and maintained entirely in NVIDIA Omniverse.
- Multiple Artists, One Server: See how teams can accelerate visual effects production with the NVIDIA EGX Platform, which enables multiple artists to work together on a powerful, secure server from anywhere.
- 3D Photogrammetry on an RTX Mobile Workstation: Watch how NVIDIA RTX-powered mobile workstations help drive the process of 3D scanning using photogrammetry, whether in a studio or in a remote location.
- Interactive volumes with NanoVDB in Blender Cycles: Learn how NanoVDB makes volume rendering more GPU memory efficient, meaning larger and more complex scenes can be interactively adjusted and rendered with NVIDIA RTX-accelerated ray tracing and AI denoising.
Enter for a Chance to Win Some Gems
Attendees can win a limited-edition hard copy of Ray Tracing Gems II, the follow up to 2019’s Ray Tracing Gems.
