In the world of automotive visualisation, we create some of the highest detailed real-time graphics ever seen. This realism is extremely important in VR, to immerse the user in a believable virtual world. The greatest limitation so far has been the hardware - in this session we will be covering details of the next generation headsets and the optimisations that can be used to achieve high quality visuals and great performance.
Find out how ZeroLight optimise next-gen VR to achieve great performance for automotive experiences with wider FOVs and higher resolutions.

I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2020 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
