ARCA, a technology company that has been making the digital signage industry explode, just announced the launch of its Arcadiz platform, which allows for “architecture design with a click.”
The Arcadise platform lets you “pivot, rearrange, and manipulate the physical space in a way that was previously impossible” for most architects.
The Arcadises new platform lets architects create “sketch houses” and “bundles of architectural pieces” for an office, for example.
“By using Arcadís innovative technology, we can create a new and exciting way to connect with our customers,” said Jeff Wasser, president of ARCA.
“The Arcadia team has a tremendous amount of experience in the field of digital signage and we are excited to take it to the next level.”
Arcadis founder and CEO Jeff Wacker said in a press release that he is “delighted to have the opportunity to be a part of this great company, which I know will provide great opportunities for ARCA to reach its customers, especially those who are looking for a simple and easy way to build, manage, and customize a project.”
Arca said that it will be adding an “Arcadiz for Architecture” app to the Arcade architecture platform and will soon start offering Arcadism, which lets you build, organize, and edit digital architecture projects.
The new platform also has “new features and tools that will allow ARCA architects to use our digital platform in a number of ways,” according to a statement from ARCA: “ARCA is the first to bring to market the ARCA Platform, which will allow us to create the next generation of digital architecture, one that is easier to use, more intuitive, and more scalable.”
Architects can create and manage digital assets using Arcadia’s platform, as well as Arcadistools and Arcadize.
ARCA is offering its platform for free to “archival professionals” for “the first time ever,” according the company.
The platform was first announced in 2014, but it hasn’t launched anywhere yet.
ARA’s technology was first described by TechCrunch in 2015, and it has been used to create “infinity” virtual reality headsets for the likes of Google, Facebook, and Samsung.ARCA and its technology partner Archadia are the first company to use Arcadisa for building the ARIA-platform, and they said in their press release today that they plan to offer Arcadista to “developers, designers, and architects” for free.
ARDA also said that they are working on “an additional Arcadizing tool to be made available to ARCA clients” within the next two weeks.
“Our focus now is to create a better ARIA for architects and designers to leverage,” ARCA said.
“We are thrilled to be the first platform provider to offer a free Arcadistic tool to ARIA customers,” ARIA founder and CTO Andrew Hsieh said in the press release.
“Arcadia has built a platform for the digital space that has revolutionized the way we do business, and we will continue to make sure Arcadistas new Arcadising platform is the best way to use it.”
The Arcades new platform has also attracted interest from other companies.
In April, Adobe announced that it was launching a “new digital design platform” called Arcadia for Design.
The company has been building software that helps developers and designers create “a digital experience from the ground up, with a mobile first approach,” according Adobe.
The company said that Arcadias new platform is also aimed at “archiving, cataloguing, and curating digital content, and that users can easily create custom projects, layouts, and other design tools to create beautiful and powerful digital experiences.”
