Mercury’s Open Inventor cluster edition

New API promises cluster-scale performance for 3D visualization and large voxel models.

Mercury Computer Systems (formerly TGS) has released a version of its visualization programming toolkit, Open Inventor, tuned for clusters. Open Inventor Cluster Edition offers developers ‘transparent scalability’ of 3D visualization applications like 3D seismics and large voxel models.


The Cluster Edition is available on 64 bit Linux systems based on either AMD’s Opteron or Intel Xeon EMT64. 32 and 64 bit Windows versions will be available later this year. Open Inventor is embedded in systems from Foster Findlay Associates, Landmark, Schlumberger, SMT, Jason, Paradigm and Roxar. Oil company developers include Total, BGP (China).
