Recently RTT USA Inc., announced they entered into a strategic agreement with Canon USA, Inc., to combine RTT DeltaGen®, high-end 3D visualization software with Canon’s new advanced Mixed Reality (MR) platform, contributing to reduced development times during the product design process by merging real and virtual worlds.

The partnership aims to help OEMs bring their products to market faster. With seamless integration of RTT DeltaGen with the Canon MREAL System, users in design and engineering are able to experience lifelike product designs in enhanced visual quality-advancing the relevancy of the digital model even further.

“The introduction of Canon’s MREAL System with the capability to integrate highly realistic product designs and interact with them in a Mixed Reality setting through Canon’s Head- Mounted Display (HMD) represents a leap ahead of existing Virtual Reality (VR) systems, that merely focus on computer-generated environments,” said Peter Stevenson, CEO RTT USA. Linking RTT DeltaGen to the new MREAL System allows the users from various industrial sectors to go way beyond typical VR technology and combine the rich visual information of the real world with the flexibility of computer generated (CG) images in high visual quality. As a result, the new MREAL System will enhance a wide range of industrial applications such as product lifecycle management (PLM), digital prototypes and industrial design studies.

Architosh Analysis

RTT is an interesting company with some powerful technology. Their Delta line of software, like DeltaGen only runs on Windows 7 x64 Edition or Windows XP x64 Edition Service Pack 2. Systems must have Nvidia Quadro or Quadro FX cards as they are the only ones capable of displaying all the visual effects and shaders created with RTT’s software. Unfortunately for Mac users–despite the availability of Nvidia FX support–there is no native version for RTT’s software on OS X.
