Kitware + Intel® oneAPI Rendering ToolKit = Cool Visualization

Early technology adopters are essential to product innovation. Kitware, an R&D open source software company specializing in computer visualization, is just such an example.

In this session, Kitware Principal Engineer Dave DeMarle joins Intel visualization software engineer Jefferson Amstutz to discuss how Kitware successfully used the Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit  (Render Kit) to optimize their ParaView* application framework and Visualization Toolkit*.

Topics covered include:

  • An introduction to the latest Render Kit, optimized for high-fidelity rendering on Intel® architecture
  • The latest features in three of Render Kit’s five open source libraries: Intel® OSPRay Intel® Open Volume Kernel Library (Intel® Open VKL), and Intel® Open Image Denoise
  • How Kitware ParaView and Intel Open VKL are using these features
  • The benefits of Intel® Optane™ Memory and Storage Management for ParaView with Intel OSPRay 2.0
