Right Hemisphere Accelerates Content Production With New Deep Creator 3D Authoring Software Release

New Deep Creator 2.3 User Interface Enhances Intuitive Workflow and Delivers Added Customization Capabilities

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 4, 2006 -- I/ITSEC -- Right Hemisphere®, the leading provider of Product Graphics Management (PGM) software, today announced a new version of its interactive 3D authoring software -- Deep Creator™ 2.3 -- which features a new user interface and 3D scene set-up wizards to speed content creation by more than 25 percent. Deep Creator has become an increasingly popular application for building complex, interactive training environments, particularly in the aerospace and defense industries. With its new user interface, the software delivers extensive new customization capabilities so users can create their own toolbars and configurations to shape Deep Creator to meet different production needs and workflows. The new version also supports dual monitors for increased visual work space and provides an overall improved look and feel for a better, more intuitive and efficient end user experience. These combined enhancements simplify and significantly reduce the time required to create training content.

"Powerful authoring tools take time to learn. Conversely, courseware and media developers are usually up against very tight deadlines," said Right Hemisphere Senior Product Manager Phillip Trotter. "So one of our primary development goals for Deep Creator was and still is to keep the product easy to use for rapid content creation as we augment its functionality. Our 2.3 release, for example, makes setting up large portions of scenes much quicker and easier for training, walkthrough visualizations, and product presentations. Customers should be very pleased to see that Deep Creator is more powerful and efficient then ever, and still very easy to use."

In addition, Deep Creator 2.3 features include:

--  Customized scene set-up wizard templates to address any given look and
    feel, or to be used out of the box.
--  Tighter integration with the Right Hemisphere Deep Server™ enterprise
    and Deep Exploration™ CAD Edition software products with support for the
    .rh 4 file format for seamless workflow and data exchange across Right
    Hemisphere server and desktop products.
--  A new real-time physics simulation engine based on the popular Newton
    Game Dynamics Engine to enable more complex rigid body simulations and
    fully interactive virtual environments.
--  Improved real-time shader and materials support to give media developers
    more flexibility to build various types of 3D applications such as kiosks,
    point of sale, powerwall and stereo presentations that exploit modern
    graphics capabilities to the fullest extent.
--  Stereo and powerwall support as a standard component of the application
    to allow media and training development teams to showcase new designs and
    content.
    
"CAD data access has been one of the biggest problems we hear about from OEMs and training specialists," Trotter added. "Integrating Deep Creator tightly with our Deep Server and Deep Exploration applications removes this problem entirely for training developers both inside and outside of the enterprise. Instead of spending time searching for and converting CAD data, training teams can acquire and transform 3D CAD data into lightweight 3D models quickly and focus their time on producing training content with Deep Creator. Our tighter Deep Server and Deep Exploration CAD Edition integration also makes it easy to incorporate new product design changes into training content as they occur."

Deep Creator is used to author high quality, complex, event driven interactive 3D scenes for computer-based training, simulations, architectural visualization, virtual reality environments and video games. The 3D authoring software is also SCORM® (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) compliant. SCORM is a collection of standards and specifications, and a critical requirement for the delivery of military training content via the Web.

Deep Creator 2.3 is available later this month for $1,995 from the Right Hemisphere e-Store located at http://www.righthemisphere.com/store/index.php or from regional resellers.
