DiSTI will showcase an industry first multiplatform Team-based Virtual Maintenance Trainer™ Powered by VE Studio® and introduce GL Studio® 6.1 at I/ITSEC 2017, booth #1281

Orlando, FL (November 22, 2017) –The DiSTI Corporation, the world’s leading provider of 3D virtual training solutions and graphical user interface software, will showcase the industry’s first Team-based Virtual Maintenance Trainer™ that is able to develop and publish training content across multiple device platforms simultaneously. Powered by VE Studio®, the UH-72 Lakota/Eurocopter EC145 helicopter virtual maintenance trainer on display will allow visitors to move and interact seamlessly between the various training environments to quickly compare and contrast each station. Stations will feature a Virtual Reality (VR) Zone with an HTC Vive and an HP VR1000-100 alongside a Mixed Reality (MR) Zone using Microsoft’s HoloLens. The team-based virtual maintenance trainer also incorporates lessons on a tablet device as well as a traditional classroom desktop-based environment with both Instructor Operator and Student Stations.

The original UH-72 VMT was developed for the Western Army National Guard Aviation Training Site (WAATS) and PEO-STRI by DiSTI Professional Services utilizing VE Studio; the world’s leading 3D development and production platform specially designed for virtual training. The initial VMT program deliverables included an end to end solution for requirements analysis and traceability, design, development and test in a classroom environment and “reach-back” training delivered on a hand-held tablet. DiSTI has dramatically expanded the commercially available VMT program for the Eurocopter EC145 to include team-based virtual maintenance training capabilities allowing multiple students to interact on training exercises/procedures in 3D virtual space using the latest virtual or mixed reality hardware.

VE Studio is the only technology platform that enables organizations to develop, publish and manage training content for multiple end user devices from a single development and delivery platform. Leveraging VE Studio provides customers a significant benefit in Total Cost of Ownership by overall reductions in time and cost when they want to modify procedures or take advantage of changes in device technology.

“Our clients have been very pleased with the results they are seeing with trainers delivered on the VE Studio platform. The interactive team-based virtual training solution on display at I/ITSEC demonstrates the power of VE Studio’s delivery capabilities our customers have come to expect as we look for ways to improve engagement and student readiness while driving down the costs of training delivery,” Joe Swinski, President, DiSTI Corporation.

DiSTI will also be showcasing their latest release of GL Studio which builds upon its industry leading User Interface development capabilities. GL Studio 6.1 now includes DirectX integration; providing native rendering support to integrate GL Studio content with any scene graph or game engine. Additionally, GL Studio 6.1 now has over 100 packages with customizable behaviors and one click deployment for desktop applications, safety-critical and embedded systems. The packages enable customers to easily tailor their workflow quickly and efficiently to effectively reduce their overall development times and costs.

DiSTI will also hold its annual partner conference with keynote speaker Mike Blades of Frost & Sullivan on Monday November, 27th at the Rosen Centre Hotel at 10:30am. This invitation only event is for DiSTI distributors, integrators, and strategic partners. For more information, please contact
