PRODUCT OVERVIEW & FUNCTIONAL SPECIFICATIONS
Cimmetry Systems' Client-Server Editions of AutoVue deliver server-based Viewing, Markup and Real-time Collaboration solutions that leverage the robust technology foundation of the AutoVue family of products. AutoVue delivers on the vision of a true Web-based architecture that is easy to administer and integral to meeting the demands of enterprise applications, intranets, extranets and the Internet.
Cimmetry's Client-Server Editions include:
INSTANT COMMUNICATION THROUGH ANY WEB BROWSER
As the undisputed leader in visualization and collaboration software, Cimmetry Systems is well aware of the growing need for instant access to any document from any desktop via project collaboration extranets, e-business portal providers and public access ISPs. With AutoVue users are assured uninterrupted access in a truly Web-based solution regardless of their desktop configuration.
RAPID & COST EFFECTIVE DEPLOYMENT
AutoVue leverages Netscape's Smart Update and Microsoft's Internet Explorer CAB Technologies for rapid deployment in browser environments. The zero administration client provides automatic installation. Furthermore, AutoVue features automatic versioning when new versions of the software are installed on the server. The client browser will automatically detect the availability of a new version and install it.
SCALABILITY TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE EXTENDED ENTERPRISE
AutoVue was designed to provide for server scalability to support an ever-increasing demand for file Viewing and Markup on intranets, extranets and the Internet. The system allows you to simply add servers should you need to increase the number of users/clients. This can be done on-line, without interrupting service. This functionality is extremely useful as the Viewing and Markup needs of an organization become more prevalent. Accommodating additional users simply becomes a matter of monitoring the AutoVue servers' load and adding servers as required. The load is efficiently balanced across the AutoVue server cluster. Doubling the capacity may be as simple as adding one more machine. This is an extremely cost and resource efficient way to accommodate growth.
INTELLIGENT & ACCURATE RENDERING IN A PERFORMANCE PACKED ARCHITECTURE
During the viewing process, documents available for viewing are rendered on the server(s) and an intelligent and displayable data stream is delivered to the client. By doing so, AutoVue eliminates any concerns about security since the original document, with its proprietary data, is not transferred to the client machine. During the transmission of the viewable data, AutoVue utilizes different compression and streaming algorithms to deliver quick and responsive feedback to the client side for large and multi-page documents.
The AutoVue Client-Server Editions embed many rendering schemes to accommodate different environments. These schemes take into account issues such as: network bandwidth, server configuration and performance, Intranet/Extranet/Internet use and file size and format to be viewed. However, in all rendering options, AutoVue keeps all necessary information for querying purposes. As such, users can perform text searches on CAD or text files or queries based on drawing attributes in a CAD file.
SERVER BASED CONFIGURATION FOR FEATURE SET, FUNCTIONALITY & LANGUAGE
With AutoVue Client-Server Editions, the server defines the user interface capabilities and feature set provided to the client, giving the server administrator complete control over those functions and features made available to the user. For example, users may be granted or denied the right to perform printing, redlining, or any other functionality available in AutoVue depending on their access permission level. AutoVue also provides "out-of-the-box" multiple language support allowing various groups of users to have user interfaces in different languages.
Real-Time Collaboration is available in the professional versions of Cimmetry's AutoVue Client-Server Editions: AutoVue Professional and AutoVue SolidModel Pro.Real-Time Collaboration provides:
HIGH RESOLUTION PRINTING
Cimmetry has identified the need for high resolution printing in the Client-Server Edition and has implemented an add-on solution to accommodate the need for high resolution and large format printing and plotting.
INTEGRATION & OEM REQUIREMENTS
AutoVue is highly customizable and has been designed to provide an extensive set of APIs for integration with EDM, Knowledge Management, PLM, ISPs, Portals, ERP, ASP, supply chain and project management web-centric solutions. The advantage of integrating with AutoVue resides in the fact that the integrator may choose to take advantage of the User Interface already developed by Cimmetry Systems. However, should the integrator opt for complete control of user interface issues and functionality we offer our View and Markup beans called "VueBeans".
These "VueBeans" do not present any pre-defined User Interface. The View and Markup beans are available for licensing to OEM customers.
AutoVue SolidModel Client-Server Edition is a server based solution with a revolutionary system to deliver fast 3D visualization over intranets, extranets and the Internet.
Cimmetry Systems is first-to-market offering an out-of-the-box server-based, native 3D visualization solution. Users can view and collaborate on their 3D CAD designs directly from within their web browsers. Cimmetry proves that the expensive IT training and overhead that has long been the standard when implementing enterprise-wide 3D visualization solutions is unnecessary. AutoVue SolidModel provides easy-to-implement, easy-to-use visual access to your documents.
The design and architecture of AutoVue SolidModel provides:
SERVER BASED METAFILE RENDERING
In an attempt to satisfy customer requirements for optimized performance and high-speed data delivery, Cimmetry Systems has developed a unique method of displaying data on client machines. A server based rendering option is now available in AutoVue SolidModel (3D server-based solution). This option allows for faster subsequent viewing of 3D CAD Files.
Here are some highlights of the main architectural features of the server-based metafile rendering in AutoVue SolidModel Client-Server Edition.
Streaming of parts in AutoVue SolidModel
When a client views a 3D document, the data is streamed continuously. AutoVue implements two algorithms to control the streaming:
