I/ITSEC 2017: DiSTI Releases GL STUDIO 6.1

Expanding reach with enhanced workflow, embedded target deployment, and DirectX rendering support

The DiSTI Corporation, an industry leader in graphical user interface software and one of the world’s leading providers of 3D virtual training solutions, recently announced the release of GL STUDIO 6.1, one of the industry’s foremost user interface development toolkits for performance, flexibility and reliability. Booth #1281 at I/ITSEC showcases this.
This latest release enables greater UI customisation and flexibility through additional deployment options alongside more out-of-the-box tools and behaviors.

“Our team continues to respond to customer demands for greater workflow process efficency and simplification of devleopment cycles to keep pace with the challenges of digitalisation during the design and manufacturing process,” DiSTI President Joe Swinski explained. “Using GL STUDIO 6.1 addresses these challenges and enables our customers to reduce time to market and engineering expenses without compromising the performance and reliabilty they’ve come to expect from GL STUDIO.”

Key features of GL STUDIO 6.1 include over 100 new tools, objects, and behaviours to enhance the ability to manage and customise workflow. The company states: “Easily add new functionality to your project with online access to package downloads and updates. Use the Package Manager to download new objects and tools including customisable UI controls, drag-and-drop importers, new visual effects, shaders, and animations. Optionally, create your own packages to add objects, toolbars, importers, deployments, and scripts to tailor your workflow.”

With new support for DirectX rendering and one-click deployment options for desktop, safety-critical, and embedded systems, one is able to deploy GL STUDIO content to any platform and integrate with other tools including UNITY, UNREAL and X-PLANE.

Built-in optimisation tools and high resolution text support for embedded targets give the user the ability to increase system performance and create best-in-class UI experiences for cockpit or automotive displays. New visualisations in the State Machine Editor simplify development and debugging by highlighting the currently active states executing in real-time.

GL STUDIO is found in Jaguar Land Rover automobiles, F-16 fighter jets, Virgin Galactic and NASA ORION spacecraft, and life-saving medical devices. Companies chose GL STUDIO for its performance, flexibility, and reliability, according to DiSTI.

I/ITSEC is showcasing the future of innovation across defences and www.monch.com/mpg/news/iitsec17.html brings together key developments from the show. For more information please see MILITARY TECHNOLOGY #12/2017, available on booth #257; and frequently check back for more NEWS FROM THE FLOOR.
