NGRAIN Empowers Distributed Learning with latest Product Release


Updates to NGRAIN solution make it easier for geographically dispersed learning organizations to leverage 3D simulations in training

VANCOUVER, BC — July 13, 2006 — NGRAIN, award-winning provider of interactive performance support solutions today announced the release of NGRAIN v3.2. The newest version of the NGRAIN solution introduces new features and capabilities that provide targeted support for distributed learning.

NGRAIN enables basic computer users to rapidly create interactive 3D simulation training content and procedural animations. The solution is currently deployed by military and defense manufacturing organizations across North America to enrich training materials, resulting in enhanced student comprehension and retention. NGRAIN v3.2 is specifically designed to break down barriers which commonly challenge distributed learning environments. Features such as smaller file sizes, progressive file loading, immediate access to previously downloaded content, faster startup times, and lower memory use make it easier for educators to share course materials across distances. This new release also expands NGRAIN’s commitment and support for industry standard formats by enabling users to export animations to the AVI format movies and embed animations and 3D simulations into Adobe® PDF files.

“The current speed of technology advances makes it critical for military personnel to have access to training material wherever they may be stationed. While it is widely acknowledged that hands-on interaction with equipment greatly helps students retain the information they are being taught, it is often not possible for training facilities to provide all students with access to hard trainers. 3D simulations are an alternative to these hard trainers, making the NGRAIN solution an invaluable tool,” said Paul Lindahl, President & CEO at NGRAIN. “NGRAIN is deeply committed to working with the defense industry to solve challenges it faces in efforts to safeguard the lives of men and women in the armed forces through proper training. We believe this new release of the NGRAIN solution will make it easier for our customers to deliver critical information to students no matter where they are deployed around the world.”

Release 3.2 of the NGRAIN solution is available immediately. To take advantage of these enhancements today, please contact or 1.866.420.1781 (toll-free). Your free copy of the NGRAIN Mobilizer 3.2 viewer is available for download at
