The technology works by breaking down the rendering calculation so that each part can be ran simultaneously across a number of machines, thus the final result can be obtained in a shorter period of time.
This is what is called Grid computing. What is more, because the ‘Grid’ of powerful computers is maintained by a third-party company at a third-party site, the architect firm can access the Grid from any location in the world, and because the service charges on a pay-as-you-go, or SaaS, model, the firm never has to worry about justifying the cost of hardware, depreciation or maintenance.
The ICT 2008 event (http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/events/ict/2008/index_en.htm) is the largest research event in Europe. It is a forum for discussion and influence of European Union priorities in ICT (Information Communication Technologies) research, where over €2 billion of funding will be available in 2009-2010. The event will feature the major current technological trends which impact upon strategic research planning and is aimed at researchers, innovators, engineers, policy and business decision-makers in the field of digital technologies.
CETIC’s Chief Engineer on this project, Stéphane Mouton, will be on hand at the event to give a live demonstration of the service. The research was carried in the scope of the BEinGRID research project, which in turn is subsidized by the European Commission. Stéphane will be accompanied by researchers from the computational fluid dynamics and financial services industries, who have likewise developed innovative solutions to problems frequently found by SMEs.
So why not come along and meet CETIC at the event? They will be at the BEinGRID stand, in the “ICT Gets Smart” exhibition area, stand number G 15. (http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/events/ict/2008/index_en.htm).

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
