Dublin, Ireland - February 07 2005 - Cortona3D, a world leader in the provision of interactive 3D graphics solutions for the Internet, has released a new version of Pocket Cortona® optimized for Intel® XScale® processor. This latest version of Pocket Cortona provides increased performance in the loading and rendering of 3D/VRML models.
The range of 3D solutions from Cortona3D offers manufacturing companies a new approach in the provision of product life cycle support and the organization of effective maintenance and repair services. Companies can now combine their existing 3D CAD and PDM (Product Data Management) data with operating and procedural manuals to automatically generate interactive 3D simulations.
Using 3D simulations of complex technical tasks (assembly, maintenance and repair) allows technical personnel to quickly study and better understand new procedures. 3D simulations are also valuable for periodic repairs allowing personnel to quickly run through maintenance guides to refresh procedures before undertaking the actual task.
Technical personnel can load 3D simulations via the Internet and view them on standard, tablet and pocket PCs. Thanks to the latest version of Cortona3D Pocket Cortona, the users of pocket PCs can now work with complex 3D simulations more effectively than before.
"The Pocket Cortona optimization results for the Intel XScale processor demonstrated that 3D model loading time has been reduced by 30% on average while the rendering has increased by 30%," said Alexander Vovkula, CTO, Cortona3D. "Thanks to the new architectures developed by Intel, the application areas of our technologies are expanding and involve new groups of users. The unique potential provided by our 3D solutions will now be available to the users of mobile devices."
"Users today expect more and more functions from their mobile devices. There is a growing demand for higher performance, support for a wider range of multimedia features, and lower power consumption. Intel has extensive experience in the provision of innovative multi-functional solutions for compact devices. It is also very important for us to cooperate with software companies that are developing new applications for Intel's mobile architectures," said Julia Klebanova, Corporate Business Director (CIS), Intel.
