OPPO to Showcase Technology Innovations Including Ray Tracing and Heterogeneous Computing at SIGGRAPH 2022
August 8, 2022, SEATTLE – Global technology brand OPPO today announced that it will be participating in SIGGRAPH 2022. During the conference, OPPO will showcase its latest industry-leading innovations in areas including ray tracing, heterogeneous computing, AR, and digital humans, offering visitors hands-on experiences with these technologies.
• OPPO Ray Tracing
OPPO first unveiled its plans in ray tracing technology at ODC 2021. During SIGGRAPH 2022, OPPO will announce the launch of new open-source ray tracing technology in the form of its Physray Engine 1.0, which will enable a new generation of visual experiences together with global partners. Meanwhile, the world’s first mobile, real-time ray tracing system application created by OPPO, the ColorOS Ray Tracing 3D Wallpaper, will receive an upgrade that OPPO users can download through the OPPO App Store. In the meantime, users can experience the stunning visual effects of the wallpapers powered by the physics engine, a joint effort by OPPO and Taichi Lang.
OPPO will also demonstrate its latest technical progess in ray tracing with the Physray Engine 2.0. The new engine integrates more advanced ray tracing capabilities, including OPPO-exclusive ray tracing effects, global rendering pipeline, and full path tracing. These new capabilities will also be available to all developers in the near future. At the show, OPPO will also showcase War Zone, a large action game scene based on the Physray Engine 2.0, and an animation demonstrates the capabilities of full path tracing on mobile.
• OPPO Heterogeneous Computing System
OPPO has long been investing in heterogeneous computing technology to explore heterogeneous software applications using different processing cores. OPPO’s heterogeneous computing technology is designed for performance and power optimization, helping developers better solve application performance problems and develop programs that run faster and more efficiently. At SIGGRAPH 2022, OPPO will showcase the latest gaming demos run on its heterogeneous computing system, which migrates all 2D rendering from the GPU to the DSP, reducing power consumption while optimizing system load. In terms of high-performance computing, OPPO will also introduce its self-developed lightweight and efficient inference framework and will demonstrate a video format conversion tool based on the technology.
• OPPO Digital Human
The OPPO Digital Human is OPPO’s self-developed hyper-realistic digital human technology. The technology provides a realistic and unique interactive experience thanks to its lifelike appearance and personality built on AI capabilities such as semantic recognition, feature recognition, voice synthesis, lip syncing, and dynamic expressions. The OPPO Digital Human has been designed to continually improve its intelligence through ongoing AI training, allowing it to one day undertake roles currently only performed by humans, such as customer service roles.
• OPPO AR Glass 2021
First introduced at OPPO INNO Day 2020, OPPO AR Glass 2021 is the company’s second AR glasses concept product. It features a split design that is nearly 75% lighter than its predecessor, making it more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. It incorporates a unique Birdbath optical solution, which increases contrast by 53%, brightness uniformity by 98% and pixels per degree by 40% compared with its predecessor, delivering sharper and more refined images. OPPO AR Glass 2021 offers the industry’s first end-to-end AR language translation feature powered by a range of patented computer vision technologies, supporting translations between languages including Chinese, English, Japanese, and Korean.
“The quality of mobile graphics rendering is at the verge of taking-off,” said Dr. Hongyu Sun, Head of the OPPO Seattle Engineering Team . “The new generation of mobile hardware and various advanced rendering technologies will bring unprecedent fidelity for mobile graphics in the next few years. OPPO is investing heavily in this territory, we’d like to share our latest progress with SIGGRAPH audiences this year. I hope you will enjoy the ray tracing, heterogeneous computing platform, path tracing, AR glass, and physical rendering demos we prepared for SIGGRAPH.”
Experience the latest OPPO innovations in mobile graphics at Booth 811, Vancouver Convention Centre at SIGGRAPH 2022 from August 8-11.
