Screen Facilities Scotland were privileged to be a part of the delegation of Scottish companies attending the Scottish Pavilion at Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco March 2016. The Scottish Pavilion is organised, supported and led by Scottish Development International – and we send them great thanks for all their help in accommodating SFS there this year.
GDC is a world leading event for games and related technology companies. The event takes place over 6 days and includes a host of conference events and a major exhibition expo. This year Virtual Reality was a very hot topic with some of the top sector leaders such as Google and PS4 showcasing their newest gear and games.
SFS met some amazing companies and saw some incredible presentations and demonstrations – everything from incredible ADR picture quality from Dolby Vision to heatmaps from Unity. Mind-blowingly cool stuff. What an amazing event we were delighted to be a part of.
The Scottish pavilion stand is in the same great location in the exhibition hall every year thanks to the deft organisation of SDI, and was a great welcoming meeting space with a giant iPad showcasing the attending companies.
