geofront - Visual Computing Consultancy - Main page

geofront is an Austrian R&D company for computer vision and general purpose computation on graphics hardware (aka GPUs).

Its founder, Dr. Gernot Ziegler, has more than ten years of graphics hardware experience, and is supported by a team of contracted engineers that are dedicated to taking on GPU software development on behalf of geofront's customers.

We develop novel cutting-edge algorithms, applying real-time graphics concepts to computer vision tasks and other spatial signal processing, such as light wavefront simulation, video compression and computer tomography.

We supply contracted research and software development, leading engineers to implemented solutions. Services include task assessment and white board advice on solution approaches in workshops. These can also be combined with training for GPU development.

Finally, our on-demand advice supports your engineering staff during their graphics hardware-based software implementation.

Quadrangle detection prototype using OpenGL 4.3 Core Profile and OpenGL Compute, implemented as a plugin to the ffmpeg project.
May 6, 2011 On May 6th 2011, Gernot Ziegler, geofront's owner, has successfully defended his PhD thesis "GPU Data Structures for Graphics and Vision".
December 12, 2007 ljus, a GPU light wavefront simulation has recently been part of a research submission accepted at SIGGRAPH. Thanks go to the project colleagues for making this a success!
December 3, 2003 geofront ceases to provide translation services and has been dismantled as a company in Sweden, caused by its owner's move to Germany. Gernot Ziegler will mostly work in his current employment as researcher/PhD candidate - a new company will be founded if the need arises.
