Virtualware joins Siemens´ JT Open Program to leverage JT in PLM with Virtual Reality
Virtualware joins the selected set of JT Open Program vendor members who utilize the JT Open Toolkit to remove technology barriers in the use of the JT™ data format for Virtual Reality, making VR more accessible to any company that is willing to introduce VIROO in their design review processes.
VIROO is a unique VR Innovation tool that simplifies the adoption of Virtual Reality technology, providing companies and institutions with the ability to leverage workforce training, engineering and design review process, and customer engagement. It gives them the ability to improve their own process by creating their own VR content. A complex process that shrinks the adoption of VR technology.
The JT Open Program was formed by Siemens Digital Industries Software in 2003 focused on the value in the use of a common 3D format. That format is JT. The program now has over 100 members, including Fortune 500 corporations located around the world and leading academic institutions.
Virtualware plans to use the JT data format to make VIROO one of the most powerful VR applications on the market for advanced project coordination in VR, especially deployed in VIROO Room, the large-scale and multiuser space, that contributes to the reduction of both costs and risks, in 1:1 collaborative scale VR environment.
VIROO works now with open formats to deliver 3D models and information seamlessly and automatically from any CAD, CAM, CAE and PLM applications into VIROO, reducing time, costs and risks
Many companies have adopted the JT data format as a standard. JT is a common data format for enabling product visualization and information sharing between PLM software applications. The robust functionality and lightweight nature of JT technology makes it possible to view and share product data and interactive images worldwide, in real-time and throughout all phases of the product lifecycle.
“We are expanding the use of VIROO by using JT Open Toolkit to minimize our client’s development efforts, maximize data compatibility, and providing the JT community with access to the VR Enterprise Solution of the Year, VIROO®”
