NVIDIA RTX Video Super Resolution converts videos from Full HD

NVIDIA RTX Video Super Resolution converts videos from Full HD to 4K in the browser

NVIDIA has introduced a new technology RTX Video Super Resolution. It’s similar to DLSS AI scaling, but it’s not intended for gaming, but rather to improve image quality when streaming videos in browsers. The technology is able to upscale Full HD video streaming to 4K resolution while improving its quality.

The new tool uses AI algorithms to improve the quality of video streaming. It smoothes out square artifacts on the edges of objects in the image, and then upscales the video to a higher resolution, making it look better and sharper on high-resolution monitors. Based on the video posted by NVIDIA, the feature upscales the image from 1080p to 4K. Whether support for other resolutions is available is not specified yet.

The company demonstrated the effectiveness of RTX Video Super Resolution using the example of video streaming of the game Apex Legends. The technology smoothed the edges of objects in the background, making the picture less “soapy”.

RTX Video Super Resolution will be released in February. The tool supports Chrome and Edge browsers and requires a GeForce RTX 3000 or GeForce RTX 4000 graphics card to use. The company has not specified what explains these technical requirements, but it is likely that the technology uses hardware blocks that only have these GPUs.
