We are pleased to announce that ATI is the platinum sponsor of
the second edition of Breakpoint, the world largest pure demoscene
The organizers of all major german demoscene events have teamed
up to bring you 73 hours of pure scene fun. Competitions, booze, a
huge bonfire and lots of outdoor and indoor action are awaiting
The so called "demoscene", who provide their works to Breakpoint
is a worldwide non-commercial society of creative individuals
involved in the making of what they have termed "Demos". "Demos"
could be considered computer generated music clips done by
programmers, graphic artists and musicians. These show what kind of
graphic and sound effects can be done by pushing computer hardware
to its full potential. Breakpoint is one of the demoscene's
culminating events where the designers, programmers, and composers
of these "demos" exhibit their skills.
Simon Kissel, Main Organizer of Breakpoint, comments "ATI
Technologies Inc. is a perfect partner for us, as they are not just
offering us a platform for presentation, but also communicating
directly with the artist community."
Central for ATI Technologies Inc. is the value of the highly
creative output of this growing computer subculture: "ATI's main
purpose is to provide perfect 3D hardware. The artists at Breakpoint
show us how to combine the technical, the avant-garde, and the
cutting edge - pushing limits with an artist's eye." - Uwe Semtner,
Marketing Director of ATI Germany.
