New Feature in Leading PDF Editor Bluebeam PDF Revu Allows Multiple Users to Simultaneously Post Markups to PDFs
PASADENA, Calif. & MIAMI — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 10, 2010 — Today Bluebeam® Software is introducing Studio, an incredible new solution for digitally collaborating on PDF drawings and documents in real-time. Designed specifically for architecture, engineering and construction professionals, Studio is a place to meet, create, collaborate and well…make a little magic.
“Studio is an amazing development in online collaboration that will transform the way project teams communicate,” said Richard Lee, President and CEO of Bluebeam Software. “Project partners scattered across the globe can now share PDFs through Studio and add markups together in real time or separately on their own time.”
Through Studio, attendees can chat and post markups to a single copy of a PDF using Bluebeam’s industry-standard redlining tools such as clouds, callouts, CAD symbols and measurements. Every chat message and markup is tracked in the Record, a comprehensive list of all session activity, which includes document, page and view information. This allows attendees to click through a Record to not only review comments and markups made by others, but to experience the same view of the PDF as when the comment was made. Additionally, an attendee can follow a partner in real time so his view of the PDF updates as the partner zooms, pans and redlines.
According to Mr. Lee, “Any attendee to a Studio session can markup a PDF file by simply using Bluebeam PDF Revu as a viewer. A fully-licensed version is required to start a session, but anyone else can participate. This makes global collaboration truly accessible.”
Studio is a new feature in Bluebeam PDF Revu® 8.5, the latest version of the leading PDF editor for the design and construction industry. It is immediately available for download at www.bluebeam.com/downloads. Attendees at The American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention and Expo may see a live demonstration of Studio in Bluebeam’s booth #2387. Bluebeam is exhibiting at the AIA Expo, in its largest trade show booth in company history, now through Saturday, June 12th at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
