Nvidia’s video conferencing software now has a fascinating AI function that deepfakes your eyes to stare at the camera even when you’re not looking at it.

Eye Contact and Vignette are two new amazing features in Nvidia Broadcast version 1.4. Eye Contact is an artificial intelligence filter that adjusts and aligns the gaze of the person gazing at the camera while preserving the natural eye color and blinking like a genuine eye. One thing to keep in mind is that if the user looks far away, the gaze adjustment will cease and the user’s sight will seamlessly transition back to its original direction.

Eye Contact capabilities enable streamers and users to glance away from the camera to read notes or other material. The new functionality is ready in 1.4, but it is still in beta because Nvidia wants to polish it for “millions of eye colors and lighting combinations.”

Vignette is a backdrop effect that blends background blur with blur to create a bokeh visual effect. Bokeh is simply how out-of-focus sources of light are represented, and when done correctly, it can be quite attractive to the eye. Nvidia also improved the current virtual backdrop blur, replacement, and removal effects, which should result in less instances of the background popping in and out.

Nvidia Broadcast is available for free download and usage, although it does require a GeForce RTX 2060, Quadro RTX 3000, or Titan RTX or above GPU, 8GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i5 8600 or AMD Ryzen r5 2600 or higher CPU.

Nvidia acknowledges that there is still much room for improvement with these new features and urges users to provide video feedback to help them enhance the features.
