Latest Version for Clara Holoscan SDK
Announced at GTC, NVIDIA Clara Holoscan SDK 0.3 now provides a lightning-fast frame rate of 240Hz for 4K video that allows developers to combine data from more sensors and build AI applications that can provide surgical guidance. With faster data transfer enabled via high speed ethernet connected sensors, developers have even more tools to build accelerated AI pipelines.
The Clara Holoscan SDK v0.3 provides GXF integration, C++ API and sample applications in both GXF and C++ API for endoscopy, colonoscopy, and ultrasound. GPUDirect RDMA with AJA video capture integration and high speed 4K 240 Hz Emergent camera integration with Rivermax support allows combined sensor data from multiple channels. Vulkan API is available for visualization, CUDA / OpenGL interoperability, TensorRT inference, and image transform acceleration in the NVIDIA Performance Primitive Library (NPP). x86 support is now available making it even easier to experiment and build AI applications with Clara Holoscan on other platforms.
