Highlights of the year
Xavier Cavin created the ScalableGraphics company in January 2007, with Christophe Mion and Thibault Neiger. This company markets the DVIZ software, a middle-ware for graphic PC clusters that includes the latest progress of ALICE in the high-performance visualization research axis. For instance, this software allows to visualize the Boeing 777 database in real time, without requiring any pre-processing. This database is composed of more than 250 million primitives.
