Polhemus Announces “The LIBERTY™ Series” New 6 Degree of Freedom Tracking Products and Cobra 3D Scanner

COLCHESTER, VT (PRWEB) July 30, 2003

Polhemus, the industry leader in 6 Degree of Freedom (DOF) motion capture, tracking and digitizing technologies is proud to announce the new 6 DOF tracking product line named LIBERTY. This product represents a quantum leap in new technology and state of the art Digital Signal Processor (DSP) electronics. LIBERTY has speed (240 Hz per sensor), ease of use via an intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI), scalability and improved signal to noise ratios which increase stability and resolution while providing consistent high quality data. The combination of all these attributes clearly positions LIBERTY as the forerunner in electromagnetic tracking technology.

LIBERTY tracks objects at an unprecedented speed of 240 updates per second, all sensors simultaneously, through the liberal use of advanced DSPs that also provide cleaner signals to enable greater range and higher stability. Four sensors are available on the base product, LIBERTY 240/4, and the simple addition of a single circuit board inside the same chassis, creates the LIBERTY 240/8 with four more sensor channels.

LIBERTY comes standard with both a serial I/O RS-232 and a high speed USB interface, at no extra cost, to keep up with the voluminous rate of tracking data produced. The LIBERTY Series comes standard with Windows 2000/XP GUI and a comprehensive, easy to use Software Developers Kit (SDK).

Each sensor with the LIBERTY is able to independently detect distortion within the environment, alerting the user to make appropriate changes if necessary. Resolution is better than 0.001 inch and 0.01 degrees, absolute accuracy is better than 0.03 inches RMS for the X, Y and Z position and 0.15 degrees RMS for rotation. Latency is less than 4 milliseconds for all sensors simultaneously. Range is in excess of five feet and can be substantially extended with the use of an optional transmitter.

As the industry’s most compact handheld laser scanner, FastSCAN Cobra is a fast, flexible and attractively priced for scanning 3D objects – significantly speeding up the 3D modeling and animation process. The FastSCAN Cobra allows users to instantly capture volumetric measurements of objects and translate this data, in real time, into a fully 3D graphical image on your computer screen. Instead of bringing objects to the scanner, users take FastSCAN Cobra directly to the object.

XKO Software Partners with Version One

(PRWEB) January 11, 2006

IT solutions provider, XKO Software Limited, has announced a partnership agreement with Version One Limited, the award-winning document management and imaging software provider. All existing XKO customers will benefit from Version One’s software portfolio, which seamlessly integrates into all of XKO’s accounting systems, therefore providing a complete end-to-end forms design, document management and imaging solution.

Current users of Version One’s software have experienced the following benefits:

Access to (and electronic delivery of) documents with just a mouse click; and,

Elimination of lengthy processes such as filing & retrieval of business documents.

Martin Perry, Managing Director of XKO Software Limited, talks of the alliance: “Current business trends show that many companies are choosing not to implement new business systems, but are instead investing in bolt-on software which adds value and longer life to existing software. We know that thousands of organisations have added tremendous value and functionality to their software by seamlessly integrating Version One’s document management and imaging portfolio into existing systems. Through our alliance with Version One, we’re delighted that we can now help our clients make their own IT solutions far more effective and valuable.”

As prices of scanning and storage hardware have recently fallen substantially this brings Version One’s software within reach of even the smallest budget. A number of joint events have already been organised to demonstrate the effectiveness of these document management solutions to our XKO client base throughout the UK.”

Version One’s Sales and Marketing Director, Tony Bray, adds, “Clients using our document management software are already making savings of over
