ECM Plus +++ Bluebeam Software has just released its latest version of Studio Server.

The server-based softwae boasts real-time collaboration features of the cloud-based Bluebeam Studio and participates in secure, PDF-based collaboration sessions in their own, locally hosted environment, the company said.

“Studio Server brings the magic of real-time collaboration from the cloud to our clients’ servers, providing them the best and easiest tools for project communication and collaboration,” said Richard Lee, President and CEO of Bluebeam Software. “Studio Server enables project teams to collaborate electronically from anywhere in the world, with greater control and better security.”

Studio in Bluebeam PDF Revu 8.5 enables the user to connect and collaborate with anyone, anywhere and at any time to meet together in real time or separately on their own time to chat and post industry-standard markups including text, highlights, shapes, CAD symbols, measurements and images, to a single copy of a PDF, as well as create summary reports of all session activity. In the spirit of open collaboration, only the Studio session host needs to own a seat of Bluebeam PDF Revu. Invited attendees can participate in any number of collaboration sessions simply by using Revu as a viewer.

Bluebeam said that Studio Server, real-time collaboration it said was ‘even more accessible, especially across industries and organizations in which file security is a key concern’.

Organisations can also host online collaboration sessions on a local server where PDFs can be safely shared behind a firewall and monitored by a firm’s IT department. Additionally, Studio Server can also control a number of options, such as determining the maximum file size of PDFs shared in a session, the number of attendees that can join at once and session archival settings.

According to the company, Studio Server will retails for US$9,995.
