PolyViz: A New Addition To The ActiViz Product Family

May 24, 2001

Kitware has announced a new product focused on embedding geometric data in documents and applications that support ActiveX controls. PolyViz will be released in June 2001 as part of the ActiViz product family of embeddable visualization ActiveX controls.

As an ActiveX control or end-user application, PolyViz can be used without the need for programming or scripting. Simply drop in the control or start the application, load your data, and go! Advanced features of this product provide polygon decimation (decrease the size of your model) and smoothing (improve the look of your model).

ActiViz is a family of software products that allow you to embed active visualization tools into documents and applications that support ActiveX controls. Depending on your requirements, you can use Visual Basic, Tcl/Tk, and embeddable ActiveX controls to extend such applications as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Explorer, and Visual Basic.
