out a room for an event can be a tiresome and tedious process. Everything
has to be properly accounted to assess available floor space. But
with the Room Viewer, layout planning is as easy as clicking a mouse.
Room Viewer is a new software that automatically generates layouts
for events from a unique fill-in-the-blanks form. A user merely has
to indicate the elements available in a room and Room Viewer will
put the diagram on screen. These elements can be rearranged and customized
to suit the user's purpose. The application uses six major seating
styles and has icons that can be used to represent chairs, tables,
stages and even audiovisual equipment. It can calculate audiovisual
throw distances and figure maximum seating and projector screen size.
It also calculates aisle size, prints diagram dimension, and generates
an added flexibility, Room Viewer Pro is also equipped with a Shape
Editor. This handy utility allows you to develop custom shapes by
rendering functional equipment and elements in a proposed site. These
shapes also provide additional information, such as the projector's
throw distance or the distance between tables for new rounds.
An optional enhancement of Room Viewer Pro is the Room Schematic.
This utility enables users to create permanent schematic drawings
of event space. Whether these spaces are indoors or outdoors, these
schematics can include boundaries and any permanent features, such
as outlets, windows, columns, doors, posts and the likes.
Room Viewer is one of a series of computer applications, which are
offered at NexC's TradeMart section.
