Geomerics Demonstrate Real-Time Radiosity on the GPU

August 9th, 2006

Geomerics, a new R&D company based in Cambridge UK, have recently announced a real-time radiosity simulation running entirely on the GPU. The solution runs at up to 100hz on common graphics hardware and allows for fully dynamic lighting, including spot-lights, projected texture or video lighting, and area lights. It integrates well with traditional modeling techniques such as normal mapping, and all lighting is performed in high dynamic range. Videos, screen shots and further details of the simulation can be found on the  Geomerics website.
