Event: Siggraph 2013 Information

Updated 7/9/2013


Booth #627

cebas technology is commonly used in major Box Office hit movies such as; White House Down, After Earth, Oblivion, Iron Man 3, Star Trek to name the latest.

cebas Visual Technology Inc. is widely known for its solid and cinema-quality rendering and particle effects software – it continues to deliver just that through its ongoing fine tuning and strive for perfection.

finalRender is the movie industry's workhorse renderer, and was the first renderer to practically apply true Global Illumination rendering to the large-scale blockbuster movie production “2012”. The movie's bigger scenes used finalRender's advanced Global Illumination algorithms to render photo real disasters, which remain amongst the most memorable shots in the world of nature destruction.

Now, with finalRender 4 GPUTM – next generation movie quality rendering becomes possible with hardware accelerated (GPU) rendering – without any restrictions or loss of render quality.

cebas co-Sponsors this Year's NVIDIA LimeLight Event! (invite only)

Not only will cebas be demoing new, improved and much-anticipated finalRender 4 GPU and thinkingParticles 6 at the SIGGRAPH showground – we will also be taking part in this year's LIMELIGHT event by NVIDIA as a co-sponsor and featured presenter.

The 6:00 to 9:00pm event will take place on July 24th @ the Anaheim Marriott, Platinum 5 Ballroom. Targeting industry executives across vertical markets, the night happening brings key decision makers together with leading innovators and offers an intimate networking opportunity to talk about latest production technologies.

Sponsorship of the NVIDIA LIMELIGHT event is important to cebas as it conveys our true commitment and close ties to the industry's latest trends in general and NVIDIA's GPU technologies in particular.
