Autodesk to offer “Virtual SIGGRAPH”
Autodesk has big plans for this SIGGRAPH, and it’s not just big announcements. They’re offering several Tech Talks and presentations, and (most impressively) the first “Virtual SIGGRAPH”.
Autodesk will be pumping at SIGGRAPH 2009 with several events such as Tech Talks and presentations on approaching film and game projects ‘9’ and ‘Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning’. They will also offer the first full Virtual SIGGRAPH. This is an online event that has free MasterClasses, live video streaming from the Autodesk booth presentations (#2201) and others attractions as well. Hewlett Packard and Intel are assisting, as well as NVIDIA, Fusion I/O and Wacom, so it’s sure to be huge.
Sounds like they’ll have reps from every major studio and company you can think of there, mentioned in the article are Microsoft, Digital Domain, EA, ILM, and more, so it’s sure to be a hot-spot at the conference.
