Mississippi State Licenses Viz Package

Mississippi State University recently purchased licensing for an engineering and science visualization software to be used in four of its research facilities. The software, called Ensight, from Computational Engineering International (CEI), will assist the university's High Performance Computing Collaboratory program designed to further computational science and engineering.

"Ensight not only provides for the visualization needs of our computational research facilities, but it also responds to our specialized computing demands,": said Eric Blads, assistant research professor at Mississippi State's SimCenter. "Our campus license makes it possible--and affordable --for us to work on desktops, to process large-scale computations in parallel, and to call on powerful distributed rendering capabilities for our immersive virtual environment."

The university's license will include three editions of the software available to any computer on the campus' network. According to Ensight, the "architecture supports the mixing of computer platforms within a single visualization session, within a workgroup, or even across a university's entire network."

The software was purchased through the company‚Äôs academic pricing program with licensing options for a single class or for the entire institution.
