SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 21, 2010) -  Actify Inc., a global leader in product data collaboration solutions, today announced the release of SpinFire Publisher 3.4, which brings SpinFire 9.0 support to Publisher customers, along with significant improvements in performance and reliability. Key to this release is the use of the core module of Actify's next generation publishing product, which is an entirely new platform, scheduled for release in Q1 of 2011.

"We wanted to bring our current Publisher customers the benefits we saw in the new development, and get that to them as rapidly as possible," said Joe Schafer, Director of Products for Actify. "This solution not only supports the publishing of 2D and 3D CAD data in the new SpinFire 9.0 format, but also has shown itself to be a much higher performance package than previous versions of Publisher."

This version of Publisher will provide customers with the highest performance publishing platform ever released by Actify, and brings it up to date and compatible with the latest version of Actify's flaghship visualization product -- SpinFire Professional 9.0 -- released in September.

When asked what is unique about this release, David Opsahl, CEO of Actify, said, "This is the first release of a product we have made that makes use of our next generation publishing technology. We have some announcements coming after the first of the year on how this new technology is being implemented across Actify's product lines, and we are excited about the benefits our customers will realize as this comes together."

SpinFire Publisher automates the process of converting 2D and 3D product data to Actify's .3D file format for use with a wide variety of SpinFire clients, including SpinFire Professional and the newest version, SpinFireSL. The solution can be set up to allow any combination of manual, on-demand, batch, or automated publishing, and can be integrated with a variety of line of business systems which manage the product data in the customer's environment.
