Etihad Stadium is home to the Manchester City Football Club. Mammoth Graphics was asked to develop a new stadium graphics solution that would be dynamic, large and interactive.
Mammoth designed a solution using two jumbo LED displays and a LED ribbon that wraps around the entire stadium mid-tier. During the pre-game warm up, graphics include player line-ups and fan engagement via tweets and comments. During the game, the wrap around LED displays sponsor ads, clocks, scores, match stats and analysis.
CCTV Sports Awards are a high profile event for the Chinese sporting well and their TV viewing fans. At this year’s event Chinese agency Hunter used AMD FirePro W9100 graphic cards to drive and sync a massive multi-screen display wall including a virtual auditorium of headshot from people around China watching the even. Ventuz was used as the interactive media software.
Galactic Battles is an open-source visual effects project to create a CG battle of epic proportions by pitting some of the most iconic Sci-Fi space ships against one another in an inter-galactic fight to the death as a short 15 min film with a real story line. Models being used include ships from Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Eve Online, and the Halo franchises.
Check out the PTC Creo 3.0 PDF to learn about the even greater performance and greater interactivity when working with large assemblies and complex models using AMD FirePro technology. You don’t have sacrifice visual fidelity for model complexity. You can have it all!
PTC Creo 3.0 on an AMD FirePro W7100 can run up to 2.5x faster in shaded mode than the Nvidia K4200
The SPEC ACCEL benchmark tests performance with a suite of computationally intensive parallel applications running under OpenACC. PathScale used their ENZO 2015 compiler to create an OpenACC executable and ran it on an AMD FirePro S9150.
The result: The code running on an AMD FirePro S9150 delivered the fastest parallel computing solution compared to the previous SPEC ACCEL leader, the PGI 14.2 compiler suite generating code for an NVIDIA K40c.
Magnetic 3D was in the AMD booth at Digital Signage Expo 2015, demonstrating their “glasses-free” 3D video wall using AMD FirePro W7000. With this solution images appear to come out of the screen as you walk by. No glasses required.
