Mechdyne and Scalable Graphics collaborate on 3D visualisation

Mechdyne Corporation and Scalable Graphics have entered into a partnership for sales and integration of advanced visualisation software and services. The companies have complementary software products that offer a combination of performance enhancements and display and interaction options for viewing and manipulation of desktop computer graphics applications such as CATIA, Pro/Engineer, NX, 3ds Max, Solidworks, ESRI, Google Earth and others in large-scale, high-resolution display environments.

Scalable Graphics is now a reseller of Mechdyne's software products with particular emphasis on Conduit. Mechdyne's Conduit software enables Open GL applications to be displayed in advanced visualisation environments including multi-wall and multi-projector systems such as the Cave, PowerWall, Tiled Walls and Reality Centers. Users can easily stream their desktop visuals to any of these environments, enhancing perspective and promoting collaboration for faster, more intuitive design reviews and visual simulations.

Mechdyne now offers the Scalable Graphics Direct Transport Compositor (DTC), which enables display of complex computer models at higher frame rates with improved interaction speeds and image quality. DTC incrementally accelerates an application's performance by distributing the rendering across any number of CPUs and GPUs to produce a single composite image. Additionally, DTC can reduce image artifacts through distributed anti-aliasing techniques that can smooth jagged edges for improved image quality.

Conduit and DTC can be used together for unprecedented scaling of both performance and displays. With a combination of these two software tools, users can review large models faster and experience them in ultra high resolution advanced visualisation environments.
