Industry-Leading LightWorks(R) 3D Photorealistic Having the image quality of a photograph.
Rendering See render.
(graphics, text) rendering - The conversion of a high-level object-based description into a graphical image for display.
For example, ray-tracing takes a mathematical model of a three-dimensional object or scene and converts it into a bitmap image. Technology to be Optimized for
Intel(R) Itanium(TM)-Based Workstations
LightWork Design and Intel Corporation (company) Intel Corporation - A US microelectronics manufacturer. They produced the Intel 4004, Intel 8080, Intel 8086, Intel 80186, Intel 80286, Intel 80386, Intel 486 and Pentium microprocessor families as well as many other integrated circuits and personal computer networking today announced that the two companies are working together to optimize optimize - optimisation LightWork Design's industry-leading 3D photorealistic rendering technology, LightWorks(R), for the Intel(R) Itanium(TM) processor.
LightWork Design is a leading supplier worldwide of component software tools for 3D design applications. The company's comprehensive LightWorks rendering
system integrates all key rendering techniques (radiosity, ray-tracing and scan-line rendering) in one package. Designed for direct integration into 3D software applications, LightWorks gives application developers fast, innovative rendering technology for producing photorealistic 3D images and animations.
Optimizing LightWorks for the Itanium processor is a major part of LightWork Design's continuing commitment to providing its customers with industry-leading software solutions, while enhancing the software's position at the forefront of rendering performance.
Gordon Oliver, President and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. of LightWork Design, commented, "We are extremely pleased to establish this technological and marketing collaboration between our two companies. Both LightWork Design and Intel are leaders in their own market spaces, and working together to optimize LightWorks will result in even more powerful rendering solutions for users. This is great news for our customers, who will be able to take advantage of the performance enhancements for the Intel Architecture."
Says Anand Chandrasekher, General Manager of Intel's Workstation Products Group, "Intel(R) Itanium(TM) processor technology extends the Intel Architecture into the highest segments of workstation computing computing - computer and will deliver new levels of performance and scalability to the new e-business economy. We are committed to working closely with leading-edge software developers like LightWork Design, whose products make the most of the advanced features that the Intel(R) Itanium(TM) processor will offer to workstation end-users."
About LightWork Design
LightWork Design is a leading supplier worldwide of 3D visualization Using the computer to convert data into picture form. The most basic visualization is that of turning transaction data and summary information into charts and graphs. Visualization is used in computer-aided design (CAD) to render screen images into 3D models that can be viewed from all and simulation software Simulation software is based on the process of imitating a real phenomenon with a set of mathematical formulas. It is, essentially, a program that allows the user to observe an operation through simulation without actually running the program. . The company has a global customer base that encompasses North America North America, third largest continent (1990 est. pop. 365,000,000), c.9,400,000 sq mi (24,346,000 sq km), the northern of the two continents of the Western Hemisphere. , Europe and Japan. The LightWorks(R) rendering engine is used in more than 70 software applications worldwide, representing hundreds of thousands of 3D software users.
