Vision is a multi-platform 3D game engine that was first launched in 2003 by the Germany-based middleware developer, Trinigy. Now in its eighth version, the Vision Engine is currently available for Microsoft Windows (DX9, DX10, DX11), Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Wii U, iOS, Android, Sony's PlayStation Vita, and most major browsers (IE6 and up, Firefox 2.0 and up, Google Chrome, Opera 9 and up).

Trinigy and its Vision Engine was acquired by Havok in 2011.[1]
