Yeah so it's SW they call technology. Even when describing their product the marketing language never lets up. The fact that it sounds like a good solution and a good acquisition does manage to come through.
From their PDF
"Enlighten ships with a full baking workflow. This has all the benefits of
the real-time authoring process, but with the added functionality of
saving the results into high-quality lightmaps. The radiosity is computed
dynamically with Enlighten, and the direct lights are ray traced to
give the highest quality shadows in the final lightmaps. Each stage
of the calculation is separately stored so that advanced compositing
techniques can be applied when baking the final lightmaps."

And
Enlighten is available as a standalone SDK or pre-integrated into
the Unreal Engine. Enlighten also ships with a fully integrated Maya
viewport. This enables artists to preview the results of Enlighten without
leaving the Maya environment. Lighting conditions and textures can be
experimented on and finalised before exporting to the game engine.

mobile gaming is a 2 lane market, you cant sell hardware without software titles to back it up. Sony and Nintendo doesnt have many fears when it comes to game quality on the system. Historically, the strongest console of the bunch never outsold its competitors

That's true. Console winners are usually those with the cheapest cost and best games for it. Crazy expensive and you lose, hardware that is too far behind you lose, and no games to take advantage of your system you lose. Android has some good games, but nothing that really requires better graphics.
