“We’re pleased to be acknowledging the work of these very worthy recipients of our postPerspective Impact Awards from SIGGRAPH,” said Randi Altman, postPerspective’s founder and editor-in-chief. “Our awards celebrate companies that push the boundaries of technology to produce tools that accelerate artistry and actually make users’ working lives easier, and our winners certainly fall into that category, particularly our MVP winner, Nvidia. We are also pleased to be introducing our Horizon Award at SIGGRAPH to celebrate the next wave of impactful products being previewed at the show.
“While SIGGRAPH’s focus is on VFX, animation, VR/AR, AI and the like, the types of gear they have on display vary. Some are suited for graphics and animation, while others have uses that slide into post production. We’ve tapped real-world users in these areas to vote for our Impact Awards, and they have determined what tools might be most impactful to their day-to-day work. That’s what makes our awards so special.”
