LC Rights Management Format Coverage Expands to Include Lattice & HitachiSoft’s XVL® 3D CAD Format

Manufacturing is now practically a global exercise, with parts vendors and production facilities located in countries around the world. With this rise in globalization, the risk to a company’s parts and production plans increases exponentially as those documents are sent from one partner to another. At the same time, providing easy access to the information to those who have the right and need to view it is also critical, especially with rising competitive & time-to-market pressures driving faster production timelines.

Lattice Technology Inc and HitachiSoftware Engineering Company’s announced integration with Adobe® LiveCycle® Rights Management brings Adobe’s unique, granular, document-level protection capabilities to the ultra-compressed XVL 3D data format, which is used to present complex CAD data in applications ranging from design review to planning and even parts catalogs.

This integration provides manufacturers with the ability to collaborate and share intellectual property with more confidence, and is strategic to Adobe’s commitment to extending the family of important manufacturing file formats protected by LiveCycle Rights Management.

LiveCycle ES Rights Management
is further compatible with the PTC Pro/Engineer and Dassault CATIA V5 CAD formats, and also protects PDF, Word, and Excel files.
