Remote rendering

Render high-quality, interactive 3D content, and stream it to your devices in real time

Build interactive experiences with the highest quality 3D content

Azure Remote Rendering brings your highest quality 3D content and interactive experiences to mixed reality devices, such as HoloLens 2. This service uses the computing power of Azure to render even the most complex models in the cloud and streams them in real time to your devices, so that users can interact and collaborate with 3D content in amazing detail.

Experience your 3D content in full detail

View and interact with your 3D models without decimation

Transcend the physical limits of your device

Render hundreds of millions of polygons and stream to mixed reality devices with low latency

Easily integrate into your application

A powerful SDK makes it easy to include remotely rendered content

When every detail matters

In scenarios where every detail matters – industrial plant management, design review for assets (such as truck engines), pre-operative surgery planning and more – 3D visualisation brings that detail to life. It’s what helps designers, engineers, doctors and students better understand complex information and make the right call.

Experience 3D without compromise

Bring incredibly detailed 3D models to the devices you use to work and collaborate without compromising quality. Sometimes, you need to decimate and simplify high-quality 3D models to run on target hardware such as mobile devices and mixed reality headsets – resulting in a loss of important detail needed in key business and design decisions. Azure Remote Rendering lets you view your models in original full detail without simplification or decimation.

Easily integrate into your applications

Easily extend your mixed reality apps with high-quality, remotely rendered 3D content using a powerful SDK.

Frequently asked questions about Azure Remote Rendering Preview

  • Azure Remote Rendering, now in public preview, is a new mixed reality service that enables you to render high-quality interactive 3D content in the cloud and stream it to your devices in real time.
  • With Azure Remote Rendering, you can interact with your architectural, engineering and design models in mixed reality without any decimation or sacrifice of visual quality.

    Experiencing 3D without compromise can help you:

    • Make smarter, faster decisions
    • Design more efficiently
    • Educate and inspire your key stakeholders
  • Anyone who wants to work with high-resolution 3D content will find value in remote rendering.

    3D visualisation is increasingly important in scenarios where every detail matters: industrial plant management, design review for complex assets (such as truck engines), pre-operative surgery planning and more.

  • A traditional approach to viewing 3D content on untethered devices is called decimation, which compresses the models and removes polygons. This simplifies the model to a point where it can run on slower GPU hardware. The result can be a loss of important detail that’s needed to make key business and design decisions. Azure Remote Rendering renders content in the cloud and streams it to devices in real time so that people can use interactive, high-quality 3D models with every detail intact and no compromise on quality.
  • Azure Remote Rendering preview currently supports HoloLens 2 and Windows 10 PCs.
