Lexington, Kentucky, June 2, 2003 -- ArchVision(tm), Inc. is pleased to announce RPC(tm)(Rich Photorealistic Content) support in Autodesk’s Architectural Desktop 2004. Joining the fast-growing family of RPC-enabled applications, ADT 2004 includes the latest RPC Plug-in technology via its content browser free of charge for ADT users.

Thousands of visualization designers around the world use RPC because it provides a way to represent complex objects in computer visualization projects without relying on polygonal geometry. As a result, users experience much faster rendering times and better image quality over traditional geometry-based solutions. Famous for photorealistic people, trees, and automobiles; ArchVision delivers more than 50 libraries of 2D, 2.5D, 3D, and 3.5D content to make it simple and easy to drop life-like entourage into renderings through ADT’s VIZ Render visualization enhancement.

“ArchVision is thrilled to announce another popular design package seamlessly supports RPC files -- increasing the breadth and depth of critical design visualization applications that are RPC-enabled,” says Randall Stevens, CEO and President of ArchVision. “This is an important milestone for ArchVision as our diversified platform strategy continues its impressive momentum.”

The RPC advantage boils down to speed, image quality and ease of use. A remarkably simple user interface makes the placement of ready-to-render RPC Content a simple click-to-place operation, dramatically increasing rendering realism. The Smart Content(tm) user interface allows users to interact with content through simple controls right in the interface, delivering unprecedented control within scenes.

For these and other reasons, leading visualization vendors like Autodesk, Bentley Systems International, Robert McNeel and Associates, Discreet, and SGI have all adopted RPC technology as their preferred image-object solution.
