Interactive Volume Visualization for Faster Discoveries
Interactive Volume Visualization for Faster Discoveries


Visualizing simulation results is essential to scientific discovery. However, existing visualization tools are not equipped to deliver a truly interactive experience on large datasets.

NVIDIA IndeX™ is the world’s leading volume visualization tool for HPC. It takes advantage of the computational horsepower of GPUs to deliver unprecedented interactive performance on large datasets by distributing visualization workloads across a GPU-accelerated cluster.

Now, IndeX works in ParaView, one of the most popular visualization tools in HPC. ParaView users can simply and seamlessly tap into the power of IndeX for an interactive experience within their existing workflows. This plug-in enables interactive volume visualization to scale with data so scientists can analyze the entire dataset for faster discoveries.


IndeX for ParaView Plug-in Features and Benefits

NVIDIA IndeX for ParaView plug-in offers interactive volume visualization that scales with data to enable scientists to analyze the entire dataset for faster time to discovery.

Interactive Visualization


IndeX with ParaView plug-in enables scientists to analyze the entire data in real-time by enabling them to interactively visualize large-scale data. With the entire data in sight, scientists can quickly converge on the most interesting data for further analysis, resulting in faster time to discovery.


Simple Workflow


IndeX for ParaView plug-in allows users to take advantage of powerful features of IndeX through the ParaView interface. This eliminates the need to learn a new tool, keeps workflow unchanged, and allows users to focus on their research and accelerate discoveries.

Performance at Scale

Performance at Scale


Existing volume visualization tools do not allow scientists to interact with large-scale data in real-time. Scientists are required to implement workarounds using iterative process to converge on the most interesting data. IndeX for ParaView plug-in delivers interactive frame rates, over 10 frames per second, on large datasets by distributing the data across multiple nodes within a GPU-accelerated cluster.


Other Features

  • Dynamic streaming and GPU caching of time-varying volume data
