Elysium and Nexroot to Provide a Grid Enabled Multi-CAD Data Translation Portal

Southfield, MI (PRWEB) October 14, 2004 - Elysium Inc., a leading global provider of multi-

CAD enabling software, and Nexroot LLC., a provider of software services for product design and development, today announced the launch of CADportal. CADportal is a new, enterprise job management software solution for automatically, checking, healing and translating 3D CAD data. This highly scalable technology is available for enterprise implementations at manufacturers needing to streamline multi-CAD environments.

CADportal is written in Java using Grid Computing architecture to streamline and enable the CAD translation process. Grid technology enables dynamic access to additional computing resources by integrating computers over a network and dispatching jobs in parallel to multiple computer nodes. CADportal has combined this advanced computing power with Elysium’s range of high-end translation technologies, which support bi-directional CATIA V4, CATIA V5, Pro/ENGINEER, Mechanical Desktop, I-deas NX, Unigraphic NX, JT, IGES and Parasolid formats. The Elysium translators also provide advanced healing of 3D data and translation of features within CADportal.

“The strength of Nexroot’s technological excellence with Grid Computing means that manufacturers now have access to an incredibly powerful 3D data translation solution,” stated Ken Tashiro, Vice President & COO, Elysium Inc. “Furthermore, the solution is very scalable and easy to implement and manage, making this kind of super-strength technology available to even the smallest manufacturer.”

“Many of our largest end-users today are running into compute-demand issues whereby secondary platforms and software purchases are required,” Tashiro continued, “With Nexroot’s Grid enabled CADportal, these end-users today can scale compute throughput by simply connecting another cpu and registering the node with the scheduler via the translation control panel.”

CADportal has been developed for easy integration into existing infrastructure and rapid deployment. Once installed, either via hardware appliance or software download, additional compute nodes can typically be installed and running within 15 minutes. The easily-understood interface with CADportal means that administration and use of CADportal can occur very rapidly and with zero training for system administrators or users.

“The use of Grid Computing technology for Elysium’s Multi-CAD data translation is a perfect match and avoids the need for expensive, additional servers and new sets of CAD translation tools when usage increases in an enterprise,” said Dave Maloy of Nexroot. “The taxonomy of being able to use spare cycles on users’ systems within the network means CADportal is infinitely scalable with another simple, 15-minute implementation. This solution means that high-end CAD translation is now within reach of smaller manufacturers who simply could not afford the overheads in the past.”

CADportal’s interface provides intuitive job management, reporting and scheduling tools that make it easy to administer CAD data translation across an organization. It supports Windows 2000, XP, HP-UX and Sun Solaris platforms.

An architecture developed with robust data security is built into the solution:

– Secure hypertext transport protocol (https) from end-user to appliance.

– 3-DES encryption for Scheduler/Client communications and vault data storage.

– Enhanced by firewall-compliant architecture featuring a configurable communication port and passive client communication for DMZ deployment.

Nexroot will continue to work exclusively with Elysium to develop and enhance the underlying technology that makes CADportal so powerful. Elysium will be heading sales and distribution of the solution via its global channel of resellers and partners in North America and Europe.

StrandVision Digital Signage Content Portal Now Offers Three Expertise Levels for Signage Design Control

Menomonie, WI (PRWEB) June 05, 2013

StrandVision Digital Signage has enhanced its Web-based Digital Signage Content Management System (CMS) portal to include three skill levels for electronic signage content administration. The three-tiered approach presents administrators with tailored selections to help them quickly and easily design, post and distribute digital signage pages. Offered as a free digital signage upgrade for all StrandVision subscribers, the enhanced user interface is available immediately.

"The StrandVision electronic signage system is designed to be simple and very flexible," said Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. "New users are automatically registered at the Beginner user level and after their free digital signage training most quickly move to Intermediate. Those who want to have the greatest level of digital signage content design control simply select the Advanced level on the administrator portal and they are presented with all of the design options for the particular page type."

StrandVision's enhanced user interface controls the design options that users see when they work with their StrandVision Digital Signage pages. Beginners see a less extensive set of choices, which makes page administration simpler; Advanced users have more choices and more control. The system allows Beginner users to modify pages created by an advanced user without disrupting higher-level settings. This also allows the user to temporarily access Advanced digital signage content features without having to stay at the more feature-rich level.

For instance, for the "Paragraph with Photo" template page, Beginners are offered a selection of fields for entering a title, paragraph content and photo. Intermediate users can also add a subtitle and direct the system to use the full digital media player screen, while Advanced users can play with color options, photo position, add Quick Response (QR) code fields and adjust text alignment, fonts and effects.

For detailed descriptions of the user-level options for each StrandVision Digital Signage content page type template visit Current StrandVision Digital Signage subscribers may select their user level by logging into their account and clicking the "User Mode" option in the "Modify Pages" section.

North Carolina Community Health Information Portal Launches

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) October 02, 2012

Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) is launching a new web-based application designed to provide new insights from large public and private databases. Called the North Carolina Community Health Information Portal (NC-HIP), the new tool is the result of a collaborative effort between CCNC, Health Landscapes, Inc., the NC Institute for Public Health and the Robert Graham Center of the American Academy of Family Physicians. The effort is federally funded through the Community Care of Southern Piedmont Beacon Community.

The site is designed to graphically geo-locate information from a variety of health and demographic databases to help identify trends and aid the development of appropriate interventions. For example, overlaying data on access to health care services with disease trends may provide insight into what types of populations and locations may be underserved for specific services.

Our aim is to develop NC-HIP into a tool that gives give doctors, public health workers and policymakers a robust tool for responding to the health needs of the community, said Annette DuBard, MD, MPH. While much of this data has been available for some time, never before have we been overlay this information in ways that reveal so clearly the interaction between disease, public health, demographics and access to care. We believe NC-HIP will be useful tool for policymakers seeking the optimal allocation of scarce resources.

NC-HIP utilizes data from the U.S. Census Bureau, DHHS Health Indicators Warehouse, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Chronic Conditions Warehouse, Institute of Medicine, Robert Wood Johnson Health Indicators, North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, Medicaid claims and Community Care of North Carolina chart measures. The majority of this data will be accessible through NC-HIP on its public-facing site at Some additional, confidential databases will be accessible only to authorized users with appropriate log-in credentials.

Screen captures on the accompanying page show an example of NC-HIP in action. In this first example, Medicaid claims data are used to show the prevalence of diabetes by county. In a second map, the percent of people living in poverty demonstrates a key social determinant of health. These maps can help demonstrate how demographics, geography and culture interact and are reflected in public health trends.

For more information about NC-HIP, please contact nc-hip(at)n3cn(dot)org or visit the NC-HIP page on the Community Care of North Carolina website.
