A demo version of the Umbra Visualizer has been released. SurRender Umbra is a commercial visibility determination library. According to the product description, it supports dynamic scenes without visibility pre-processing. Here's a description of the Visualizer demo:

" This real-time demonstration shows how objects can be on-demand loaded from massive world databases. The demo loads objects from a database file when they become "almost visible". The loading never stalls the rendering - if an object has not been loaded in time, it is not rendered until its data has been fully streamed in. Objects that have not been visible for a while are removed from memory and swapped back to the database. "
