SANTA CLARA, Calif.—Sept. 10, 2010—Sixty companies from more than a dozen countries will showcase new technologies based on the graphics process unit (GPU) at the Emerging Companies Summit this month in San Jose, Calif.

The 60 companies will share key details and provide technology demonstrations from their exhibit space on the show floor. Twenty four of the 60 have been selected to present on stage before panels of technology leaders, analysts and investors. In these sessions, their CEOs will discuss business strategy with panels comprised of technology executives from Adobe, Cisco, Google, IBM and Microsoft, along with members of leading investment firms.

Among the companies selected for these CEO on Stage presentations are: Playcast (Israel/UK - games on demand), Softkinetic (Belgium - gesture recognition), RTT (German - 3D visualisation software), Useful Progress (France/Canada - medical imaging), Natural Motion (UK - 3D character animation and physics modeling), and OptiTex (Israel/US - 3D visualisation software for fashion-related industries). Despite challenging economic conditions, their innovations are providing substantial growth potential and attracting the attention of corporate investors and members of the VC community.

“Our technology will save lives by giving doctors the ability to see into the human body like never before, without the risk and injury of invasive surgery. The Emerging Companies Summit gives us an opportunity to share this magic with the world,” says Sylvain Ordureau, chief executive officer, Useful Progress.

About ECS
