Azure 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 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 incorporate with your applications
Use the powerful SDK to easily 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), preoperative surgery planning, and more—3D visualization 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. You often need to decimate and simplify high-quality 3D models to run on target hardware such as mobile devices and mixed reality headsets, resulting in the loss of important detail needed in key business and design decisions. Visualize your models in original full detail without simplification or decimation.
Interoperate with your applications
Easily extend your mixed-reality apps with high-quality, remotely rendered 3D content using a powerful SDK.

See how customers are leveraging Remote Rendering
"With our HoloLens and Remote Rendering based immersive inspection processes, engineers can now visualize infrastructure assets remotely with great detail and accuracy. This reduces time spent, lowers costs, improves safety, and reduces traffic disruptions."Dan Vogen: Vice President, Road and Rail Asset Management, Bentley Systems
"Thanks to Remote Rendering, we can now support construction projects with models 10 times the previous size. Our customers use HoloLens for on-site visualization to identify errors, resolve issues, and reduce building rework costs by up to 50 percent."Peter Neil: CEO, BIM Holoview
"We leverage Remote Rendering for visualization and sharing of high-polygon, 3D CAD data. The BIM construction data used to be so large that you could only display one floor at a time. Now, with Remote Rendering, HoloLens shows an entire building at once."Kaoru Nakamura: Co-Founder and CEO, HoloLab Inc.
Frequently asked questions about Remote Rendering

With higher-fidelity 3D models:
- 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 visualization is increasingly important in scenarios where every detail matters: industrial plant management, design review for complex assets (such as truck engines), preoperative surgery planning, and more.
A traditional approach to viewing 3D content on untethered devices entails decimation, or model compression and removal of polygons. The result can be a loss of important detail that’s needed to make key business and design decisions. 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 in quality.
Remote Rendering currently supports HoloLens 2 and Windows 10 PCs.
