Tim Woodard of Diamond Visionics to speak at Image Conference

Vestal, NY – June 21, 2016 – Diamond Visionics’ announces that Tim Woodard has been chosen to speak at this year’s Image Conference at the University of Dayton, River Campus, Dayton, OH. Mr. Woodard will be speaking on Wednesday, June 29, 2016.

Tim Woodard has published and presented previously at Image, GTC, I/ITSEC, ASQ, and ITEC conferences. Mr. Woodard’s speech entitled, “Deferring Commitment For Scene Content Generation” pertains to Image generation software that has traditionally been based on the concept of loading pre-computed databases, and rendering them utilizing a scene-graph approach. Modern hardware provides a number of mechanisms which can enable deferring commitment regarding the form that scene data takes at run-time, eliminating the need for pre-computing scene content. By utilizing parallel processing and modern OpenGL techniques, scene content can be generated “on demand”. The result is that an order of magnitude increase in performance can be achieved when compared to previously available rendering methods. This paper will cover some of the available techniques and how they impact overall rendering performance and fidelity.

Mr. Tim Woodard is the Chief Technology Officer at Diamond Visionics, with over 19 years of experience specializing in the design and development of software architectures for real-time PC-based image generation using Agile development processes, advanced C++, and modern OpenGL techniques. Mr. Woodard has received patents for the real-time simulator database generation technology which forms the basis of Diamond Visionics’ GenesisRTX worldwide database generation system. GenesisRTX provides high-fidelity generation, visualization, and manipulation of visual databases at run-time directly from source data on low-cost PC-based platforms, eliminating the need for traditional labor-intensive off-line database production processes. Tim has served as the Director of Engineering, Director of Research and Development, and principal investigator for a number of Phase I, II, III US Government Small Business Innovative Research Grants.

Diamond Visionics Awards “Most Innovative Design” Prize at “IT FLIES USA 2016” Competition

Diamond Visionics, a provider of 3D visualization and image generation, gave a cash award to the winners of the “IT FLIES USA 2016” competition at the University of Dayton. The competition, sponsored by Merlin Flight Simulation Group, featured student teams from the University of Dayton and the University of Manchester in England who created their own designs of a fixed-wing or rotary-wing aircraft. Test pilots from the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base evaluated each presentation and then flew the aircraft in the university’s newly upgraded visual on the MP521 simulator.

Diamond Visionics, creators of the GenesisRTX visual graphics used during the competition, awarded a cash prize for “The Most Innovative Design” to Manchester University’s rotary wing design team of Cian Hanley, Matthew Hogg and Mitchel Follet.

“What made this competition truly unique” said Daniel Peters, Sales Manager of Diamond Visionics, “is that the University of Dayton has invested in a fully integrated Flight Simulation System and instructor station, one of the few universities in the U.S. to have done so. This enables the students to test their designs with the same visual software as the military and commercial pilots training around the world.”
