(STEREOGRAPHICS) StereoGraphics Delivers 3D Visualization
Capabilities to Product Design and Prototyping Professionals using
SDRC I-DEAS Master Series 5; Stereoscopic virtual prototyping
enhances designers' ability to create, simulate, build and test
products in a single stereo-3D environment using SGI Workstations,
SDRC's I-DEAS Master Series 5 software and StereoGraphics
SAN RAFAEL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 1,
1997--StereoGraphics, the world's leading developer of 3D viewing
peripherals, today announced that SDRC's I-DEAS Master Series 5
mechanical CAD/CAM/CAE software will now support the interactive
display of stereoscopic images in conjunction with StereoGraphics'
CrystalEyes eyewear. StereoGraphics CrystalEyes is the most widely
used 3D visualization hardware tool in use today for design,
simulation and modeling. Combined with the powerful capabilities
of SDRC's I-DEAS Master Series software and SGI workstations, users
have an unparalleled design and digital prototyping environment.
"The ability to rapidly prototype, document, modify and
simulate product design and function is the biggest contributor to
fast time-to-market," said Robert Seltzer, director of sales and
marketing for StereoGraphics Corp. "Using I-DEAS Master Series and
CrystalEyes takes this process to new levels of efficiency by
allowing designers to see their work in a high-resolution,
stereoscopic 3D setting."
Today, CrystalEyes is supported directly by all SGI
workstations, including the Octane and Indigo2 Impact and Onyx 2
family of computers. Additionally, stereoscopic imaging support
has long been a trademark feature of Silicon Graphics' visual
computing capabilities in the scientific and commercial markets.
SGI's support for CrystalEyes brings it into a leadership position
for visual computing and manufacturing design.
"Manufacturers can use these
tools to significantly reduce the design cycle and put products on
the market sooner because of their ability to visualize designs
before prototypes are created."
StereoGraphics CrystalEyes is a lightweight, wireless eyewear
system that delivers high-definition, stereoscopic 3D images in
conjunction with compatible software and standard workstation
displays. CrystalEyes allows professionals dealing with multi-
dimensional data to visualize problems and analyze information more
quickly and effectively.
Many common software applications used in mechanical CAD,
molecular modeling, GIS/mapping and medical imaging support
StereoGraphics' CrystalEyes on all major UNIX platforms and Windows
NT workstations. With StereoGraphics' CrystalEyes and SDRC I-DEAS
Master Series 5 software, engineers can produce realistic views of
their models with accurate height, width and depth, eliminating
costly and time-consuming physical prototyping.
"SDRC's I-DEAS Master Series software products are at the
forefront of design technology," said William Carrelli, vice
president of field marketing for SDRC. "The addition of support
for stereoscopic viewing and StereoGraphics' CrystalEyes delivers
an important visualization element that will enable our customers
running on SGI platforms to gain significant benefits in the
digital design and prototyping process."
By providing data in a digital master-model environment,
designers can use I-DEAS Master Series to create, document, test,
and modify and prototype products concurrently. This allows
manufacturers to develop and evaluate multiple design concepts so
that the final product more closely matches customer expectations.
StereoGraphics Corp. was founded in 1980 to provide a variety
of products that enable the realistic viewing of three-dimensional
video and computer images. StereoGraphics products utilize
stereoscopic human depth perception to deliver natural looking 3D
in high-resolution for a variety of professional workstation and
consumer applications. CrystalEyes, StereoGraphics' flagship
product, has an installed base of over 50,000 users in scientific
visualization, GIS/mapping, molecular modeling, CAD/CAM, and
commercial presentation. With SimulEyes, StereoGraphics offers
affordable 3D eyewear for the PC gaming and multimedia markets.
