jReality: scalable 3d graphics rendering in Java.


jReality is a project by Peter Brinkmann, Charles Gunn, Tim Hoffmann, Holger Pietsch, Ulrich Pinkall, Markus Schmies, and Steffen Weissmann.
It is a followup project of jScene, a software developped by Tim Hoffmann in his spare time while at UMASS Amherst.
jReality is a library that allows for interactive manipulation of scientific data on a wide variety of platforms. It is written in Java. The output media include software only Java rendering, hardware accelerated OpenGL rendering stereo viewing, immersive virtual reality applications like in the PORTAL. as well as file formats like PIXAR's renderman and SVG.
jReality includes technology to maintain synchronized copies of the scene graph distributed over the net on rendering clients.


Next meeting of the jReality group: TUE 06/20/06, 11:00-12:00.

In the lounge at the 3rd floor.

proposed topics:

More suggestions are welcome and should be sent to: Tim Hoffmann: hoffmann@math.tu-berlin.de
