Ever see a virtual kitchen materialize in real-time? If you caught NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang's keynote for our March 2021 GPU Technology Conference you're no doubt wondering about more than a few of the presentation's magic tricks.
With the premiere of 'Connecting in the Metaverse: The Making of the GTC Keynote,' Wednesday, Aug. 11, at 11 a.m. Pacific time, NVIDIA team members will reveal the story behind the story told at GTC.
Designed to entertain and inform, GTC keynotes are always filled with cutting-edge demos highlighting NVIDIA's advancements in supercomputing, deep learning and graphics.
This year, however, with NVIDIA's team working remotely to create a presentation for attendees flocking to an entirely virtual gathering, those technologies were crucial for making the keynote itself.
The highlight: the reveal of Huang's virtual kitchen, complete with a digital clone of the man himself.
The half-hour documentary film debuting Wednesday tells the tale of the small team of remote artists who were able to blur the line between real and rendered on a tight deadline with NVIDIA Omniverse, a platform for connecting 3D worlds into a shared virtual space.
Go to our SIGGRAPH 2021 landing page to watch the video, and browse all our events at this year's conference.
Immediately after the video's debut, those who are registered for SIGGRAPH can join the team at NVIDIA who will dig into the story told in the video for a live Q&A at 11:30 a.m. Pacific time.
