GL Studio Enables the Rapid Development of Photo-Realistic Interactive Radio Faceplates for Higher Realism in Calytrix’s Comm Net Radio Simulator
Orlando, FL and Dayton, OH (31 May 2011) – Calytrix Technologies announces CNR-Skins, the newest addition to Calytrix’s Comm Net Radio (CNR) family of radio simulation products. CNR-Skins is a set of highly realistic, interactive, graphical faceplates of military radios, coupled to Calytrix’s Comm Net Radio Simulator (CNR-Sim). This combination of CNR-Sim for radio communications and CNR-Skins for realistic radio controls and displays provides the highest level of radio simulation for training.
DiSTI’s GL Studio, an award-winning software toolkit used to create 2D and 3D graphical user interfaces, empowered the developers at Calytrix to rapidly generate interactive faceplates for the new CNR-Skins product. With its unrivaled ability to produce high fidelity smart objects, GL Studio enabled Calytrix’s developers to quickly replicate the functionality and behavior of each radio component while maintaining photo-realism.
“One of the cornerstones of DiSTI is to provide our customers with the best quality tools to sustain their innovative solutions. The production of CNR-Skins by Calytrix instigates the next generation of training realism,” said Joe Swinski, CEO of DiSTI.
“Calytrix’s Comm Net Radio family of products has been growing rapidly in number of products and worldwide usage,” said Shawn Parr, CEO of Calytrix Technologies. “CNR-Skins gives CNR-Sim radio simulator users a new level of user interface, with realistic radio faceplates and operational controls and displays.”
