Licensing Agreement Reached with Capstone Monday, November 5, 2007
B-Scada, Inc. has entered into an agreement with Capstone Technology, Inc. to utilize pieces of B-Scada technology in upcoming versions of Capstone software products. To protect the strategic advantage of the technology in use and in development, the companies have chosen not to divulge further details.
Founded in 2003, B-Scada identified early the leading role that XML would play in graphics, multimedia, and interface design and development in the upcoming decade. XML based graphics have become significant not only for software development, but for the enrichment of the user experience on the Internet. B-Scada's focus is on WPF, XAML and Silverlight from Microsoft. B-Scada has been involved in these technologies since 2004 and provides products and expertise in software engineering, developer training, consulting and graphic design services.
B-Scada's products, Aurora XAML Designer and VantagePoint WPF Controls, were developed for software developers and designers using .NET 3.0 as the platform for their software applications. Aurora is a XAML design product for developing user interfaces and graphics for Windows desktop and web applications. Aurora can be used as a standalone product or can serve as a customizable and embeddable graphics design platform that can be embedded in 3rd party .NET applications as a WPF control, complete with Object Model and Plug-In architecture.
VantagePoint WPF Controls is a suite of user interface components designed to be used in highly-graphical WPF Windows or Web applications, like those found in industrial control systems (SCADA and HMI), medical, financial and manufacturing software applications. Written entirely in WPF, VantagePoint WPF Controls can participate in data binding and styling and is compatible with B-Scada's Aurora XAML Designer product, as well as Visual Studio and Expression Blend by Microsoft.
