Autodesk reveals new software for 3D printing

September 16th, 2014 by Manmohan No comments »

Following an initial announcement in May, design and engineering software provider Autodesk has finally unveiled Spark, its new open software platform for 3D printing.

Autodesk demonstrated Spark at its annual mega-design event Autodesk University in Mumbai, India on Friday. The software is designed to democratize 3D printing and make it easier for hardware manufacturers, software developers, materials scientists, product designers, and others to benefit from the technology. It is open and freely licensable to hardware manufacturers.

Spark aims to simplify the entire 3D printing process by making it more reliable and easier to control. According to Autodesk, the software makes it easier to visualize and optimize 3D prints without having to conduct trial runs or risk messing up a print. It connects digital information such as CAD file details and slicing details to 3D printers in a way that enables a more streamlined connectivity and communication between the printer and computer. Autodesk says it also broadens the range of materials that can be used for 3D printing.

“We believe that 3D printing has the potential to disrupt the market and usher in the New Industrial Revolution by empowering users to imagine, design and create,” said Pradeep Nair, Managing Director of Autodesk, India & SAARC. “Spark is the manifestation of our vision to democratize design technology and make it accessible for every person who wants to design and make things.”

A new 3D printer

In addition to the big Spark reveal, Autodesk also previewed a prototype for a new Autodesk 3D printer. The printer was showcased as a reference point for Spark by demonstrating the way the platform can interact with 3D printers. Neither Spark nor the new 3D printer are released to market yet but they should be later this year.

“3D printing has the potential to revolutionise manufacturing and bring powerful new ways to design and cater to businesses around the world,” said Steve Blum, Autodesk Senior Vice President. “Later this year Autodesk will release Spark, an open software platform for 3D printing, and our own Autodesk 3D printer as a reference implementation of the software. We are very excited to show a prototype of the new 3D printer, for the first time on stage, today at AU India, and hope to inspire our customers here in India and around the world to imagine, design and create a better world using this transformative technology.”

Chronic disease focus of software designers

September 16th, 2014 by Manmohan No comments »

In the not too-distant future patients across the country with cardiovascular disease and cancer soon may be logging in to a computer program, with a Halifax connection, designed to help manage and prevent chronic diseases.

Local company Kinduct Technologies has developed the software for the web-based, multimillion-dollar initiative that will be used by cardiac rehabilitation and prevention programs and cancer centres in Nova Scotia, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec.

“It’s an opportunity to work with the leaders in chronic disease across the country. It’s going to be a fantastic initiative and we’re super excited about it,” company founder and CEO Travis McDonough said Friday.

The three-year, $2.4-million Acceleration program is still being tweaked and a date has not been finalized to put the software into use, he said.

But when it is up and running, patients will be able to access information that is specific to their own conditions and follow a customized motivational plan to manage them by moving to a healthier lifestyle by healthier eating, increasing physical activity and stopping smoking.

McDonough said the content has been created by leading health professionals and experts in changing behaviour.

Patients will find everything from information on their conditions, tailored exercise videos, menus (including meal preparation tips and grocery lists) and videos from experts on a variety of topics to feedback, motivational messages and monitoring tools to track things like how many steps they take, their blood pressure and heart rate.

Doctors will also be able to log in to monitor patient progress.

The program will track and monitor patient activity and progress, so the initiative leaders can measure the effect the technology is having on changing behaviours and implement changes to the programs as needed.

“It’s behavioural change that we’re trying to accomplish,” McDonough said. “There’s no point just pushing information to someone unless it’s going to make an influence on the behaviours that are causing the problem.”

Key to the program is the fact it is available away from a hospital or clinical setting, so patients are able to get the information they need as they need it, he said.

“It’s all about trying to break the shackles of a bricks-and-mortar environment of a hospital setting,” he said, pointing to the high costs associated with .

Kinduct is making key inroads in the digital world of managing health, fitness and sport performance, recently signing a deal with two NBA teams and buying a Vancouver company that offers online fitness programs.

Ericsson to purchase Fabrix Systems, expand software media focus

September 16th, 2014 by Manmohan No comments »

Ericsson continues to broaden its portfolio into the software space, announcing late last week plans to acquire Fabrix Systems, which offers cloud storage, computing and network delivery for video applications. The platform is currently used in set-top boxes and digital video recorders.

Ericsson said the deal, which was valued at $95 million, would extend its television and media portfolio “with a cloud-based scale out storage and computing platform focused on providing a simple, tightly integrated solution optimized for media storage, processing and delivery applications such as cloud DVR and video-on-demand expansion.” The company added that the move will take advantage of various technologies, including clustered storage, grid computing, virtualization and video processing technologies.

Fabrix’s platform is set to be included in Ericsson’s MediaFirst and Mediaroom offerings, with the company explaining the move will allow TV service providers to migrate consumer services and applications into a video cloud. Video services are often seen as the main congestion generator for telecom networks as consumers increasingly turn to streaming high-bandwidth content.

“We are investing significantly across our TV platform and video-network areas to extend our market leadership position,” explained Per Borgklint, SVP and head of Ericsson’s Business Unit Support Solutions. “Our Media Vision 2020 shows that traditional TV is shifting rapidly towards TV Anywhere and Ericsson’s leadership in broadcast, video and networks places us in a unique position to enable the most demanding customers to define and deliver the future of TV.”

Fabrix, which has offices in the United States and Israel, will see its 103 employees folded into Ericsson’s Business Unit Support Solutions division.

Ericsson last year purchased Microsoft’s Mediaroom for an undisclosed amount, in a move to position the company in the carrier IPTV space. Earlier this year Ericsson purchased Azuki Systems, which enables live and on-demand content delivery, as well as the ability to tie content to metadata and to social connections.

Ulf Ewaldsson, SVP and CTO at Ericsson, earlier this year talked with RCR Wireless News about the distinction between “mediacoms” and telecoms.
