zacview – a platform-independent software engine
zacview operates under Windows, MAC OS X and Linux. It can be operated as a stand-alone application or in conjunction with a control system. That way state-of-the-art tools and resources are at the user’s disposal.
The basis and precondition for all visualisations is a virtual model of the framework. The house, stage or any other location is digitally rebuilt using exact, three-dimensional measuring and / or equivalent available records.
In the next step, moving parts of machinery, objects, scenery et cetera are integrated into the model in a fixed or dynamic manner.
After customising and adapting to the new interface, zacviewvisualises all control commands, real-time positioning, status, condition and other data concerning the stage control. The visualisation includes a simulation of physics and collision detection which forwards warnings to the operation console and provides the user with vital information for further processing.
