In one of the more difficult to reach halls NVScene started AKA DemoScene. Demoscene - a term used to describe a community of highly skilled graphic artists, coders and musicians working together to create incredible pieces of real time animated art, all present at NVScene, part of NVISION 2008.
Here we see the NVScene opening. The outcome will be collections of demos on the huge screen and sound system. The demoteams flew in from around the world. NVScene is hosting a demo competition with over $20,000 in prizes, in two classic categories:
The NVScene Demo Competition, presented by HP
Audiovisual masterpieces with no limits.
The NVScene 4K Intro Competition, presented by EA Spore
The complete production - including music - must fit within 4096 bytes.
of course next to GeForce LAN today the ESWC started. Clans from countries around the globe fighting with each other, in cyberspace.
It was good to see several female teams. they bring a certain dynamic into the hall that seems to work out great. No clue who these lovely ladies are, yet they sounded rather Swedish.
We have one more item from NVISION to show you guys. Though not 100% related to NVISION I figured this would be fun to show you. In San Jose there was a concert given. Now typically we gamers are not your average classical concert attendees, but the guys from video Games Live setup their gear in the San Jose concert hall and we figured it would be a nice opportunity to attend it and at thee very least show you some photo's on what is actually happening as such a concert.
