SVI Pro 2009

ffA has introduced SVI Pro 2009, a 3D seismic analysis software package that combines interactive analysis modules with the latest in scalable desktop HPC.

The software's Interactive Facies Classification module (IFC) provides an interpreter driven method for seismic facies analysis. The IFC places the seismic interpreter firmly at the centre of analysis process. It is a 3D seismic analysis application fully enabled by GPU computing technology: workflows that would previously take days to realise can now be delivered across an entire dataset in real time.

SVI Pro 2009 provides a comprehensive suite of colour and opacity blending functionality allowing users to highlight and understand the geological relevance of even the most subtle variations within their data.
