   Scalable Graphics is a spin-off company of Inria, relying on over 10 years of research and development in the field of high performance computing and visualization for 3D applications.

Our main product, Direct Transport Compositor, is a 100% software solution (based on InfiniBand interconnect) of parallel image compositing. It allows any number of processors (CPU) and graphics processors (GPU) to concentrate their effort on a single display, without any modification to the standard 3D applications.

We do not only scale the graphics performance of 3D applications, but we also optimize and enhance the whole pipeline, including data management (parallel inputs/outputs) and computations (parallel computing, computing on the GPU / GPGPU / Cuda).

For instance, our Regular Grid Service product is a client / server based service which allows the management, the visualization, the manipulation and the computing of very large regular grids (seismic, RMI, computing codes...) on PC clusters.

In addition to our software solutions, we offer a full spectrum of IT services in the domain of 3D visualization and parallel computing: consulting, training, software development and systems integration.

   Seeing Machines specializes in visual computing algorithms that track faces and facial features in real time. Using only a standard web-camera, our software performs automatic 3D headtracking that can drive advanced visualizations and parallax 3D VR. Seeing Machines image processing technology can also track lip and eyebrow movement, for determining facial expression, which can then be mapped in real-time to avatars or fed into an in-game AI. The core technology also includes tracking of eye-gaze direction and eyelid closure. Seeing Machines face tracking brings a new level of visual intelligence to software by allowing games, programs and other devices to understand their users in totally new ways.

   During the past few years, computer games and training simulations have evolved in complexity and graphic intensity. Yet, one critical area remains sorely lacking: artificial intelligence. Until now, the behavior of agents in a game or simulation has either been manually programmed, or created by solutions that primarily focus on pathfinding and basic decision-making. xaitment’s passion for AI has led to the development of the modular xaitEngine, a system that enables game and simulation developers with no previous AI knowledge to create realistic intelligence and rational human behavior for enemies and non-player characters (NPCs) alike. A spin-off of the world renowned German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), xaitment has developed to be a full fletched AI partner striving to bring game characters to life by suffusing their decision-making process and team operations with realistic influences, such as basic reactions, goals, rewards, consequences and even emotions. xaitment’s vision is to extend the life of every game and simulation by immersing your customers in a world of characters who learn and evolve, just like humans.
