EON Reality announced the latest release of the company's immersive and interactive 3D authoring tools, EON 8. The new software includes expanded CAD and 3D data import support, improved interactivity and support for additional VR devices.
According to the company, the new release improves the rendering performance by up to 30 times faster on a given graphic card and can handle extremely large file sizes, up to 16 terabytes. The software has expanded its scalability to more than 20 publishing formats; the same content can be used on different interactive 3D displays, from a tablet to an immersive Icube solution. It can now also be displayed on mobile platforms. Users can create interactive content with millions of polygons using EON Studio that can be published on Android or iOS mobile device.
The EON 8 software suite includes EON Studio, EON Professional, EON Icatcher, EON Icube, and EON Raptor.
The multi-threaded rendering pipeline is now optimized to scale with multi-core CPUs, and with a new heavily modified render engine it is now possible to render up to 30 times faster than before. The new engine can also dynamically combine small objects into bigger batches, to increase rendering performance on the fly.
