Visualisation provider turns to graphics engine for solution

Share this on social media:

Future Point System's Starlight Visual Information System is using VSG's Open Inventor 3D graphics engine to provide rapid application prototyping and development, multithreaded graphics API, and automatic rendering optimisation.

Starlight Visual Information System is an advanced information visualisation technology that enables information analysts to graphically manipulate, understand, and act on very large quantities of complex and disparate information.

By generating pictures of relationships among items in large information collections, and placing those relationships in meaningful contexts, Starlight enables analysts to apply their natural visual pattern recognition and spatial reasoning skills to information comprehension and problem solving.

Open Invento is an object-oriented, cross-platform 3D graphics toolkit for the development of industrial-strength interactive 3D graphics applications.
