OPTIS to showcase THEIA-RT at SIGGRAPH
The World’s First Physically Correct Real-Time Renderer Lets Engineers and Designers Work More Efficiently, Accurately
OPTIS, the world leader in developing light and vision simulation software solutions, today announces the major release of THEIA-RT the world’s first truly physically correct real time renderer enabling engineers and designers to work more efficiently, more accurately …without the wait.
The THEIA-RT Suite, winner of Computer Graphics World Silver Edge Awards, now offers a unique hybrid rendering technology mixing the best of 3 powerful rendering technologies including Shadics (a combination of shader and physics), realtime raytracing and realtime global illumination.
To satisfy designers’ needs, THEIA-RT now offers a unique Texture Mapping set of tools allowing users to create and map any 2D/3D effects on any surface in any manner. When used, this mapping is combined with the OMS² physically correct BRDF material measurement providing the ultimate in realistic appearance particularly when combined with light effects.
THEIA-RT is now fully connected to SPEOS allowing designers and engineers working together, sharing the same 3D model and one unique light sources / materials database, which guaranties a continuous process throughout the design cycle. Coming from the industrial world, THEIA-RT is able to import huge 3D model from any Design and CAD software thanks to GPU compression algorithm.
THEIA-RT realtime capability is the only reliable, scalable visualization solution on the market able to address all platforms, from Mobile Devices to Virtual Reality centers, giving engineers and designers instant feedback and decision making power. Its fully scalable (multi-GPU) rendering technology has been successfully tested on a 32 projectors system providing a high resolution immersive representation with no compromise on realtime performance. Imagine the ability to visualize your product not only at a 16k per 16k pixel resolution, but also in high dynamic! This is now real thanks to THEIA-RT.
Pete Moorhouse, VP Sales & Marketing says "we are now opening the door between designers and engineers offering an easy and natural interface behind which the most powerful engine is hidden. This new version is just offering something new that no one else has already proposed: scalable, powerful, realtime, true colors, true light effects. This is what any designer dreams about. Just incredible."
Jacques Delacour adds "we continue our efforts in search of physically correct rendering and performance. Every design process has now to be rethink realtime including virtual experience of the future product by the end user. We measure our technology advance coming from our optics and physics background which is unique in the rendering edition. Just compare the result to reality and you will understand the advance we provide to our user community taking the right decision earlier in the process."
THEIA‐RT Version 2 will be presented for the first time at SIGGRAPH 2012 on OPTIS’ booth and AMD’s booth to let you experience what is real realtime on an iPad and a large display system that will communicate through a Kinect.
