OBS Studio pulls in NVIDIA as a new sponsor

By - | Views: 7,060

OBS Studio continues growing, with NVIDIA joining as their latest big sponsor to help this free and open source project continue getting better.

Announced by the official OBS account on Twitter, it notes that NVIDIA is a new Diamond sponsor. This means that NVIDIA will be providing at least $50,000 a year to the project. This doesn't mean NVIDIA has any kind of control over OBS and they join the likes of Logitech, Twitch, Facebook and more in helping to fund probably the best way to record and livestream video on Linux.

This also isn't the first time NVIDIA has become a big sponsor of FOSS software, as they also sponsor Blender.

If you missed it, OBS is preparing a brand new release, which amongst other things will bring with it official Flatpak support for the Linux version making it easier than ever to get the official package across many different Linux distributions.

Nice to see more companies appreciate open source.
