Abstract

An experimental study of software image compositing that we have carried out on a 512-node PC cluster shows the necessity of hardware compositing support to make possible real-time volume visualization scalable with large PC clusters. This paper describes the design and performance evaluation of such a hardware image compositing device. A PC cluster using such devices along with commodity graphics cards can enable simultaneous simulation and volume visualization.
