VISUS is now officially an Intel® Parallel Computing Center!

VISUS has recently been funded as the first Intel® PCC for Visualization in Europe! With this funding, we plan to integrate Software-Defined Visualization into MegaMol. That way, it will work on a wider range of hardware and easily scale to larger data set sizes. Combined with some other changes, the upcoming 1.3 release already contains OSPRay support for particle rendering, streamline rendering, and volume rendering. It will also be experimentally in situ capable. The Intel® PCC will also allow us to contribute some application-specific visualization approaches to OSPRay itself, which can then be used with the MegaMol-integrated OSPRay or the stand-alone viewers for high-quality large-scale results in the context of molecular visualization.
