Cambridge, UK-based Geomerics, a technology development company that targets video game developers with its dynamic lighting solutions, has announced that the company has completed work on its Enlighten software for the PlayStation 3. According to Geomerics, Enlighten alters the way lighting is handled in games by allowing more dynamic lighting effects to be computed at run time. The news follows the recent integration of the software into Epic Games’ popular Unreal Engine 3 middleware solution. "We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to develop on the PS3," commented Geomerics' CTO Julian Davis. "We believe that by harnessing the power of both the Cell processor and the GPU our lighting technology will help to realise the full graphics capability of Sony's console". Geomerics CEO Gary Lewis added: "There is no doubt that the PS3 provides a massive opportunity for companies such as Geomerics. We will be creating cutting edge technologies across a range of complex and challenging areas, each optimised to take full advantage of the PS3 architecture. This will offer developers massive savings in time and cost, while simultaneously improving the quality of the games they can deliver".
