REALVIZ Stitcher Gateway to CATIA V5 Available October 2002

In January 2002, Dassault Systemes welcomed REALVIZ as a new Partner to the Software Community Program. At that time, Dassault outlined the forthcoming program, in which REALVIZ would develop and sell two products, which would expand the powerful realistic rendering capabilities of CATIA V5 and ENOVIA Portal DMU Solutions, by enabling 3d PLM customers to integrate their 3D virtual products into real environments. REALVIZ is now pleased to confirm, that the first product outlined, REALVIZ Stitcher Gateway to CATIA V5, will very shortly be available for purchase.

REALVIZ Stitcher Gateway to CATIA V5 is the way to build panoramas using photographs to create realistic environments maps. By combining horizontally and vertically overlapping photos into stunning wide-angle panoramas, REALVIZ Stitcher Gateway to CATIA V5 gives V5 users the power to deliver the most impressive panoramas for 2D/3D integration of their CAD models.
