In connection with rental of computational resources, we offer external partners a portfolio of computerized 3D scene rendering services.

In the field of rendering, IT4Innovations closely cooperates with the Blender Institute and participates in developing their open-source Cycles renderer as well as having rendered the final scenes of several short movies they have produced.

For an end user, rendering on the IT4Innovations infrastructure is performed using the extension of the open-source Blender software both on the side of a client application of a remote-connected user and on the side of a computing cluster, which performs computations. This concept is implemented via the Rendering-as-a-Service service package.

ADVANTAGES OF RENDERING-AS-A-SERVICE

  • parallelization of the rendering process of both static views and full animations and movies,

  • utilization of standard and accelerated nodes of the computing cluster,

  • users have the opportunity to control and check the state of a rendered scene directly from their personal computer.


MRI/CT data processing

  • reconstruction of 3D models of tissues via processing of Magnetic Resonance and Computed Tomographygenerated data,
  • in-house software tools for image reconstruction developed in cooperation with University Hospital Ostrava.
