The Power of the Image: Create High-Performance Visualization Solutions with Minimal Complexity

Think rich, realistic visuals are the sole domain of the GPU? Think again. Some of the most amazing (and precision-point accurate) photorealistic eye candy is being created on the CPU with an Intel open source library. Find out how.

Photorealistic visualization comes in many forms. Motion picture animation. Medical imaging. Thermography. Virtual and augmented reality. Industrial process tomography. And lots more.

It’s the rising star of technological innovation and it’s enormously complex because it involves moving, storing, and processing massive amounts of data, often simultaneously. Making this happen requires serious advancements across the computing spectrum—architecture, memory, interconnects, and software.

To find out more about computer-generated realism—including the software tools to help you do it—grab a spot in this webinar hosted by Jim Jeffers, senior director of Intel’s Advanced Rendering and Visualization team.

Here’s what he’ll cover:

  • An overview of the Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit—a set of 5 industry-leading open source rendering and ray tracing libraries for creating large-scale, rich, realistic visuals without the memory limits and cost of dedicated GPU-based solutions.
  • How Intel and key industry partners such as Disney and DreamWorks continue to define and enable fast, high-quality rendering, physical simulations, and AI-supported workflows (including how these capabilities are part of the free Render Kit you’ll want to download).
  • How to use the Render Kit to:
    • Reduce rendering times of production-quality images while dramatically improving their visual quality
    • Create interactive, high-fidelity applications that are cluster-ready
    • Achieve high-rendering performance when GPUs are unavailable or too limiting
    • Tap into rendering and simulation processing of 3D spatial data

Get ready for hi-fi geometry and how-to techniques.
