LightWork Design celebrates 20th anniversary20 years of graphics excellence (February 04, 2009)
DMN Newswire--2009-2-4--LightWork Design, the world's leading supplier of rendering solutions for developers of advanced 3D computer graphics software, is celebrating its 20th anniversary year.
The company began back in 1989 and over the past 20 years the LightWorks rendering engine has been developed into a key solution within the computer design marketplace, integrated within over 80 software applications and used by more than 2 million users worldwide.
LightWorks was originally developed to meet a gap in the marketplace for a photorealistic software toolkit. It was a revolution at the time and was quickly integrated within many key applications around the world. Gordon Oliver, one of the original founders of LightWork Design and former Managing Director, explains, "We started LightWorks when 3D graphics hadnt really been applied much to areas outside of entertainment such as engineering and architecture, and when computer hardware to run the software cost tens of thousands of pounds. From initial use by a few early adopters, the market grew as more and more people realised the power and benefits of LightWorks. The Company began life during tough economic times in the late eighties and early nineties so its fantastic to see LightWorks in such a strong position 20 years later ? a real testament to the continuous development and innovation that characterises the company and its products."
David Forrester, Managing Director at LightWork Design, added "20 years within the 3D graphics marketplace is something to really shout about. Were proud of LightWorks and what weve achieved in the past 20 years but were not just going to sit back, we continue to invest in research and development and will continue to build upon our past successes to give our customers a powerful rendering solution in the future as well."
To mark this landmark achievement, LightWorks plans a number of exciting announcements throughout the year, culminating in the Siggraph Asia even in Yokohama, Japan in December. To keep up-to-date with these, and for more information about 20 years of LightWorks, go to the LightWorks website
