Grand Opening on November 3rd as Part of the Executive Briefing Series Held by NVIDIA and mental images.
SAN FRANCISCO & BERLIN - mental images and the National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) at Wichita State University today announce the new RealityServer Development and Demonstration Center. Engineers and manufacturers in the Aerospace and Defense Industries can review, interact with, and design 3D web based applications that enable detailed 3D-imagery of aircraft designs to be rendered using the NVIDIA® RealityServer® rendering platform.
Visitors to the RealityServer Center have the opportunity to experience the most complete, 3-dimensional depictions of an aircraft - from a bird’s eye view of its aerodynamic body, all the way down to the core components of its engine. The NVIDIA RealityServer platform creates real-time images, allowing multiple users to interact with and change, not only the viewpoint, but the content. For engineers in need of comparing design options, the NVIDIA RealityServer platform lets them change parts, resize components, add colors and surface effects, or view exterior and interior configurations utilizing mental images latest interactive photo-realistic ray tracing technology.
“We are excited to partner with mental images to bring RealityServer to our facility,” said Fernando Toledo, manager of NIAR’s Virtual Reality Center. “Utilizing RealityServer’s innovative rendering capabilities will allow us to provide a valuable visualization tool to our clients.”
The RealityServer Center is located in NIAR’s well-established Virtual Reality Center, which provides useful design review services to manufacturers. In addition to demoing NVIDIA RealityServer applications to industry professionals, the 3D CAD Engineering department at NIAR will be able to develop their own RealityServer applications that provide solutions for product design, manufacturing, and product performance.
“RealityServer is designed for knowledge workers who need remote access to large, complicated and highly confidential 3D models for design collaboration, virtual prototyping, product configuration, parts catalogs and high quality imagery for marketing and sales purposes,” said Randy Ochs, vice president, sales and business development, North America, mental images. “We are proud to partner with NIAR and provide a collaboration platform that can play an integral part in helping advance aviation design and the development of 3D web applications for the aviation industry.”
The NVIDIA RealityServer platform at NIAR will run on NVIDIA GPUs that take advantage of NVIDIA’s Cuda™ programming language to provide optimum performance. NVIDIA RealityServer technology utilizes a 3D Web development platform, effectively storing all content to a secure server. This allows any desktop computer or handheld device with a browser to access the material without compromising the speed and quality of the image.
