SiteScape Integrates RealityWaves VizStream into Collaboration EnvironmentSiteScape users can have active discussions that directly reference 2D and 3D files
VizStream allows SiteScape customers to enhance their collaborative environment by accessing, visualizing and working on 2D and 3D data.
?By integrating VizStream into SiteScape Forum, SiteScape users can have active discussions that directly reference 2D and 3D files, view a history of modifications, receive e-mail notification of changes, and move files through approval processes using workflow, said Richard M. Tahan, Jr., vice president of worldwide channel marketing for SiteScape. ?The SiteScape/VizStream combination allows companies to shorten project development time, speed up communication between remote teams working to solve complex business problems, and easily share data between technical and non-technical teams.
VizStream enables anyone with a Web browser to view, mark-up (redline), refine, and configure complex graphics files including 3D computer-aided design (CAD) files, 2D drawings, and other data associated with design and manufacturing. VizStream dynamically streams data, meaning there is no download time and collaborators can work instantly. VizStream also keeps the integrity of the model, allowing all parts and assemblies to be viewed.
?The ability to communicate and collaborate throughout the design process is critical to fast, efficient and cost-effective product development, said Aaron Freedman, vice president of business and product development for RealityWave. ?VizStream makes it possible to access and visualize the 3D and 2D data critical to a products lifecycle. Through our partnership with SiteScape, we are excited to bring this capability to todays companies.
