The development of the new Lumen runtime for GL Studio represents a multi-million dollar development effort by DiSTI to ensure that our technology continues to meet the demands of our users well into the next decade.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
The DiSTI Corporation, a leading provider of interactive 3D software and customized training solutions, announced today the debut of Lumen, GL Studio’s new runtime engine, at the Interservice/Industry Training , Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2012. GL Studio powered by Lumen provides enhanced development features and increased capabilities in demand by today’s software UI developers.
The Lumen runtime engine is DiSTI’s latest advancement in human machine interface development technology, allowing GL Studio users to expand their platform reach and interface functionality. Among the set of new features, Lumen allows GL Studio users to integrate their graphical content with DirectX based scene generators opening up deployment options beyond the standard OpenGL landscape.
In addition to DirectX, the new Lumen runtime delivers the capabilities required to meet the needs of today’s software UI developers. Its enhancements for greater object animation control, advanced text capabilities, higher fidelity for rendering 3D models, and support for new graphics card features, allow developers to create interface content that replicates real world devices closer than ever before. Designed to build once and deploy anywhere, Lumen includes a lightweight COM dispatch architecture that replaces the binary interface with LUA scripting language.
“The development of the new Lumen runtime for GL Studio represents a multi-million dollar development effort by DiSTI to ensure that our technology continues to meet the demands of our users well into the next decade. Consumers expect more from their user interface experience and now GL Studio developers can easily deliver on those expectations,” said Darren Humphrey, Chief Technology Officer of DiSTI.
Lumen will be officially introduced in Booth 1773 at I/ITSEC 2012 on Dec. 3 – 6 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. For more information on the show, visit http://www.disti.com/events.
