KDAB at SIGGRAPH 2018 Vancouver, August 12-16

It’s almost upon us – August 12-16, in Vancouver: SIGGRAPH, the hottest show in town, and the 45th SIGGRAPH Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques. This year KDAB is sharing a Qt booth with The Qt Company. You can find us at Stand 1333, not far from the Attendee Lounge and opposite The Experience Hall. We’ll be talking about how we help build automation, graphical tools and pipelines with Qt and Python, in both the games and VFX worlds, and our ability to meet high-end 3D needs in industrial, medical and automotive with Qt 3D. We’ll be sure to mention also our introductory and advanced training on C++, OpenGL and Qt delivered by experts with current working knowledge from diverse projects. And you can see our latest Tron Frame Graph demo, with the following features:

Tron Frame Graph

  • Data-driven configuration of the Qt 3D renderer
  • Complex 3D frame graph with visual effects: bloom, reflection, glow
  • Simulation data coming from either C++ or Python backend
  • Live, interactive control over the appearance
  • KDAB drives the Qt 3D development

  On August 14th, Michel Nederlof of Quantitative Image Systems will be talking about The Intersection of Graphics and Medicine at Siggraph NEXT: Connections. Meet Michel at our booth, where we’ll be showing an update to our phenomenal Qi Tissue demo, which shows what you can do with miscroscopic data from tissue samples:

Qi – Cellular Tissue Imaging in Qt 3D

  • 3D visualization of microscopy of tissue samples
  • 2D images from cutting edge clinical diagnostics data sets
  • Real-time conversion to 3D from 30 image channels using Qt 3D


A novel attraction will be the Interactive Nanoquill Wall at our stand, where attendees can take a break and join in the fun of creating art that helps cancer researchers better determine the nature of rogue cells, thus making it possible to target treatment individually and much more effectively. KDAB has sponsored the Nanoquill #color4cancer project from the beginning and helped create the software that Quantitative Imaging Systems uses to further their research. You can find out more about The Nanoquill Project, buy the book and download the images here. Meet us at SIGGRAPH
