Abstract:   Today we are living in a visual economy. Information is shared in an extremely fast pace in high visual quality. Expectations to highest quality of visuals and an existing shift towards digital processes, creating pressure in the process of visual content creation. Existing workflows and tools, utilizing desktop computing reaching the limits. The presentation will describe how scalable high end visualization removed the barriers between desktop computing and HPC. Visualization pipelines are becoming increasingly important, we will show how and why a visualization pipeline is important and how scalability plays here. We will lay out commercial aspects and the different use cases from real time design reviews on Power Walls, over CGI and video production, to WEB configuration and Point Of Sales solutions. At the end we will present the benefits in each use case with HPC environments with hard metrics. We will talk about a measurable ROI in the entire process.
