IDELIX Software Inc. Receives Cadalyst Magazine's Wow! Award 06.30.2003

PDT wins recognition as one of the most innovative visualization technologies on the market.

Pliable Display Technology (PDT) by IDELIX Software Inc. definitely has the "Wow-factor" according to the editors of Cadalyst Magazine who selected PDT for recognition in their annual Wow! Awards.

"IDELIX's Pliable Display Technology caught our attention as an innovative solution to problems designers face daily. PDT provides a new and intuitive way to view, comprehend, and edit increasingly complex designs and data sets," remarked Cadalyst executive editor Sara Ferris.

Cadalyst editors based their selections primarily on the Wow! Factor - is the product innovative, and does it creatively solve problems? They also considered how useful and distinctive the product is compared with other offerings in its market niche. Cadalyst is not the first to take notice of the growing market traction IDELIX is experiencing with their innovative "detail-in-context" visualization and data manipulation technology. Earlier this year, IDELIX also received Advanced Imaging Magazine's "Imaging Solution of the Year" award.

PDT is a virtual lens technology that facilitates "detail-in-context" viewing and data manipulation in 2D and 3D data sets. PDT lenses replace inefficient zooming-and-panning processes and provide support to the host application's existing design tools leading to improved accuracy and efficiency of common tasks such as point-to-point measurement, red-lining and markup. A platform and data format independent toolkit, PDT's Application Programming Interface can easily be integrated by application vendors and system integrators as an advanced visualization solution to the challenge of working with complex 2D and 3D information within the spatial limits of a display screen. IDELIX plans to unveil Version 3.0 of the PDT Software Development Kit (SDK) at the ESRI User Conference being held in San Diego July 6-11. With this release, IDELIX will further extend its reach to the CAD/CAM/CAE market through the addition of a new vector painting system as well as support for DirectX, COM and .NET development.

"With PDT, the user has precise and direct control over how data is displayed using our unique in-place UI, so as to optimally view and work with the data," noted Dr. David Baar, CTO and Founder of IDELIX. "Once integrated into an application, many of the host application's existing design and editing tools can operate seamlessly through the PDT Lens, thereby increasing the value of each and every tool. Powerful new lens-assisted editing operations are possible, such as lens-assisted cropping, trimming, and object placement. These operations reduce the number of navigation steps that must be made to do a given operation precisely, making the user more productive."
