SIGGRAPH is the world’s leading digital conference and exhibition in computer graphics and interactive techniques, gathering almost 20,000 participants each year.
The conference’s 44th edition took place between 30th of July and 3rd of August, with five days of research results, demos, educational sessions, art, screenings, and hands-on interactivity featuring the community’s latest technical achievements, and three days of commercial exhibits displaying the industry's current hardware, software, and services.
This year, French innovation was represented by 24 organisations exhibiting, making France the most represented foreign country. Cap Digital and Imaginove set up one of the 10 largest exhibition areas on the main alley (next to the Amazon booths, Google and Facebook), thus offering one of the best possible visibilities to the 16 companies selected and gathered in the French Pavilion.
For the past 11 years, Cap Digital and Imaginove have been joining their forces to showcase the best companies in computer graphics and digital creation at SiGGRAPH. The companies selected to exhibit under the French pavilion are recognised for their excellence in content creation, supply of services or software and hardware marketing in the most technologically advanced digital sectors: Motion capture, 3D animation, special effects, immersive experience, animation & postproduction, render farms and green logic & sustainable development.
