Video Transcript:

Colby: Perspective Symbols represent our continued effort to improve visual design standards for industrial applications. They are components that represent industrial equipment, they have dynamic data models, so binding them to process values is a simple matter of drag and drop. Users will have the choice of three distinct visual appearances; P&ID, simple and mimic. These visual appearances can set the overall style within a project or apply to just a specific component. Perspective Symbols can be customized in a variety of ways. Visual options such as supporting text, animation and device orientation can be defined.

Carl: Each symbol can display state driven by dynamic process variables such as, on or off, open or closed, percent full, just as examples. In this initial release, the Perspective Symbol Library will contain a selection of the most popular symbols:; valves, motors, pumps, vessels and sensors. With our release train, additional symbols will be added regularly in the coming months, helping to grow the Perspective Symbol Library even more. We believe that Perspective Symbols will pave the way for improved visual development and more attractive-looking applications, which our community of users, new and old, will definitely enjoy.
