CADzation, BALD Technologies Partnership Introduces Large, Specialized HD Touch Screens to the Blueprint Review Process

AcroPlot Matrix software by CADzation and LIQUID Displays from BALD Technologies provide tools to simplify electronic reviewing of blueprints with large format HD touch screens

MESA, Ariz., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CADzation Software, a company that provides industrial strength PDF and DWF software solutions to the global CAD marketplace, announced a joint-venture with BALD Technologies offering large size HD resolution touch screens that include AcroPlot Matrix software at a price point that is affordable and competitive. Each LIQUID Display will ship with a license of AcroPlot Matrix software which provides viewing, commenting, and printing for PDF, DWF, PLT, and TIFF file types. Unlike other PDF viewing solutions, AcroPlot Matrix includes the capabilities to open and view an extensive list of file formats used by architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturing, and military professionals. Using AcroPlot Matrix with a LIQUID Display allows companies to better manage blueprints and the notations recorded on them electronically. The displays are large enough to view blueprints without the need for excessive zooming and scrolling to find important information at a glance.

"We designed AcroPlot Matrix software specifically as a solution for viewing and commenting on blueprint size documents for AEC, manufacturing, and government professionals," said Rodney McManamy, President of CADzation Software. "Our partnership with BALD Technologies is win-win for their clients, because the product being delivered is a turnkey solution offering a nice large HD touch screen that drives our software beautifully and allows their clients to utilize the system with little or no training."  

"We did a lot of searching and evaluating of software applications in order to offer a software solution that complemented the LIQUID Display's high precision touch screen while meeting the needs of our clients," said David Fuller, President of BALD Technologies. "With the ease of use for commenting and markup, plus the ability to open an extensive list of file types, not just PDF files like Acrobat Reader, the value AcroPlot Matrix brings to the table is echoed every day in the positive comments and feedback we're receiving."

LIQUID Displays with AcroPlot Matrix software are available now at:

21.5" LIQUID LD215(2), HD Display, $725 (Includes AcroPlot Matrix 1-Lic.)

32" LIQUID LD32(2), HD Display, $2199 (Includes AcroPlot Matrix 1-Lic.)

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world.

Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...

As cyber security serves as a fou...
Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend. To help better understand the relationship between DevOps and a plethora of new end-devices and data please welcome Gary Gruver, consultant, author and a former IT executive who has led many large-scale IT transformation projects, and John Jeremiah, Technology Evangelist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), on Twitter at @j_jeremiah. The discussion is moderated by me, Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
