The CUDA-Open Inventor 3D API provides developers with possibilities for massive dynamic or static computation capabilities on seismic data with simultaneous 3D visualization feedback.
Geophysicists are used to taking advantage of their 3D workstation to extract the best data from their seismic volumes. Some tasks require access to a supercomputing datacenter to run very complex algorithms on large and complex data volumes. NVIDIA and Mercury say their solution offers the kind of processing power normally found in a supercomputer on a standard workstation.
"3D visualization has revolutionized the understanding of seismic data, thanks to the performance provided by the GPU," said Jean Bernard Cazeaux, Vice President of the Visualization Sciences Group at Mercury Computer Systems. "GPUs allow much more than visualization; they provide amazing computing capabilities for interactive applications. Mercury has facilitated the interoperability of Open Inventor with NVIDIA's CUDA language, to provide application developers with a unique, integrated solution."
