Photorealistic visualisation with grid-based technology

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


    The rapid development and low price of personal computers make them an interesting choice for conveying ideas through visualisation. Although real-time 3D graphics are adequate for many applications, a single computer is insufficient if photorealistic images are required, not only with today's technology, but even in the near future. At VTT Information Technology, grid-based distributed computing has been utilised to take advantage of the processing power of off-the-shelf office computers that are idle most of the time. As a result, using the rich resources of this existing distributed and networked environment, photorealistic images were produced faster and more cheaply.
