Realtime Technology (RTT) AG provides an enhanced overview of media with RTT PictureBook 5.5, which manages multimedia assets. RTT PictureBook 5.5, in concert with the RTT PDMConnector and RTT Composer modules, features improved functions for cooperation among different teams, more efficient workflows, and greater flexibility in image generation, according to the company.
RTT PictureBook 5.5 offers new functions that improve collaboration and optimized workflows. While previous versions used different viewers for individual asset types, users of the new MediaViewer can now examine and compare all 2D and 2.5D assets in a single viewer. The viewing options include a transparency mode as well as multi-view and overlay. Each view mode allows for creating sketches and adding notes, for example, allowing a marketing department to use RTT PictureBook to give simple feedback to designers.
The update also features data exchange options that allow users to share their own AssetCollections and SmartFolders with others based on search criteria. According to the company, this function shortens search times required to find the right files, simplifying cooperation within the team. User authorizations allow users to set who receives access and who is permitted to make changes to the files. For storing older file versions, RTT PictureBook 5.5 offers a new ZIP function to compress files that are no longer needed.
RTT PictureBook 5.5 provides direct access to PDM data. With RTT PDMConnector, CAD data can be transferred directly into RTT DeltaGen from Siemens TeamCenter, via RTT PictureBook 5.5.
With RTT Composer in conjunction with RTT PowerHouse 1.5, interactive 3D models can be used in real time via the web browser to generate product images independently of operating system, hardware, or location. This is supported by the Angle and 2DArt features. With Angle, camera angles can be determined at an early stage in the design process. Using the height, distance, and focal length parameters, users can identify flattering shots for their product. The selected settings can then be saved and used in 2DArt and RTT DeltaGen.
