Session to showcase company's Enlighten tech

Julian Davis, chief technology officer of illumination middleware provider Geomerics, will present a talk at GDC08 on 'The Art and Science of Lighting'.

Part of the session will feature a look at Geomerics' real-time radiosity middleware Enlighten, which can compute dynamic lighting with the quality of a pre-computed lightmap, including effects such as colour reflection and re-emission effects.

"Julian's session at GDC '08 is great news. In 2007 we delivered well-received sessions at Develop and Montreal, but GDC is the event that everyone looks towards to set the agenda for the industry," said Gary Lewis, CEO of Geomerics.

"It is a fantastic opportunity for us to lead discussion of video game lighting techniques and demonstrate what we are planning for 2008 and beyond.”

GDC08 takes place in San Francisco from February 18th to 22nd.
