EnSight allows me to visualize my data without removing it from the server – I can visualize at LSU data that are in Texas or Illinois or California,” Blaise Bourdin, an assistant professor in Louisiana State University’s Department of Mathematics says. “I don’t have to wait until everything is transferred, and I don’t have to store it locally to view it.
Using a 3-D viewer provides a quick way of viewing motion and rotation at any angle without having to start the post processing all over again,” pyrotechnic engineer Christopher W. Brown at NASA’s Johnson Space Center says about CEI’s EnLiten. “It allows you to view the animation, not just like a video, but something that you can rotate and move around.
EnSight offers unique rendering capabilities and can handle very large models, that’s why we are using it here in the lab,” Brent Craven, a researcher with the Gas Dynamics Lab and the Applied Research Lab at Penn State University says. “Furthermore, the capability to fully automate data analysis and visualization in EnSight by writing script programs in the popular programming language Python is very powerful.
The selection of EnSight Lite shows that CEI is in tune with the seismic shifts taking place in the HPC community,” says Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications, publisher of HPCwire. “Vendors such as CEI are on the leading edge of making HPC technologies accessible to organizations of all sizes.” (CEI won a reader’s choice award from HPCwire for best price/performance visualization product or technology for their product, EnSight Lite at the 2006 Supercomputing show.)
