EON Reality and Graphisoft Join in Development and Marketing Agreement
Irvine, CA, December 15, 2000 - EON Reality, Inc. a leader in PC-based 3D Interactive rich media, today announced a collaboration agreement with Graphisoft, a global leader in software solutions for the architecture and building industry.
EON Reality, Inc., a leading software developer of PC-based 3D interactive simulation software for architecture, e-learning and e-commerce has announced their most recent partnership with Graphisoft U.S.
EON Reality and Graphisoft will as a first step develop EON viewing capabilities directly from within ARCHICAD. This capability will be available to ARCHICAD users as part of the standard ARCHICAD distribution and updates. In addition the companies will develop an ARCHICAD Add-On based on EON technology to bring ARCHICAD content such as walk-troughs of buildings directly on-line allowing for interactive collaborative design reviews and presentations.
"The IT industry beyond the AEC segment is now beginning to recognize the need for and advantages of using Graphisoft's virtual building solution to develop simulated environments. EON's simulations and ARCHICAD's functionality combined will form a powerful offering that is well suited to several newly developing market areas", explains Tamas Hajas, President of Graphisoft U.S.
"This collaboration truly leverages the strengths of both companies from technical as well as business standpoint. Many of our existing customers will save time and money by this close integration between EON and ARCHICAD. Particular benefits such as reducing time spent in the development process translating data between different formats as well as generating time consuming renderings will be welcome", commented Mats Johansson, President, EON Reality.
