Watch our new Bluebeam Studio interview video

August 30, 2011

Since the release of Revu 8.5, users have been using Bluebeam Studio  to connect, create and collaborate with anyone, anywhere at any time. Then, a few months back we introduced the highly requested Studio Server, which gives users more control over their Studio settings and allows them to host all of their online collaboration sessions locally behind their firewalls. So exactly how different are Studio and Studio Server you ask? Well, to explain the differences between the two, why each was created, and the incredible benefits they provide, we interviewed none other than our President & CEO, Director of Account Services and Product Manager.

Collaborating with Bluebeam Studio

June 22, 2011

Do you ever wish you could use Bluebeam to not only add your own markups to PDFs, but share the files with others for online, real-time collaboration? Well, you can!

Included with Revu 8.5 and newer is a feature called Bluebeam Studio. Studio lets you upload your PDFs to the cloud and invite others to meet together in real time, or separately on their own time to chat and post markups to the same copy of a single PDF. The best part – only you, the session host, needs to own a seat of Revu. Invited attendees can participate by using an active or expired trial of Bluebeam and registering for a free Studio login.

Here’s how to collaborate with Studio:

1)  On the Revu Start page, click the “Start a Session” button. Or, open the Studio tab on the right-side of Revu’s interface and click “Start.”

2)  Name your session, add the PDFs to share and select your options. You can even restrict session attendees by email address.

3)  If you chose to restrict attendees by email addresses, enter their names on this screen. You can do so manually or by importing in email contacts from Outlook.

4)  Your Studio session has now begun! You and your fellow attendees can add markups to the uploaded PDFs together in real time or separately – the choice is yours! The Studio tab will display the attendees, shared PDFs and a record tracking all session activity (attendance, documents, markups and chat messages).

If your organization wants more control with collaboration, check out our new Studio Server. This product gives enterprises the option of hosting Studio sessions locally behind their firewalls and controlling Studio settings such as file size, number of attendees, archival settings and more. Check out the details here. And remember, to keep on PDFIn’!


InformationWeek Writes about PDF-Based Collaboration with Bluebeam

June 7, 2011

Bluebeam Studio for real-time collaboration, and our new Studio Server option for locally-hosted collaboration sessions are making headline news! On Monday, InformationWeek posted this article about using Bluebeam to collaborate on PDF documents, either in the cloud or behind the firewall.

If you’re looking for ways to share PDFs with others in your organization or on your project, then Studio just may be the right tool for you. An included feature of Bluebeam PDF Revu, Studio lets you upload your PDFs to the cloud so that together with your colleagues, you can post markups to the same PDF – either together in real time or separately on your own time. If your organization needs more control and more security, you can use the new Studio Server product to bring all the benefits of Studio from the cloud to behind your firewall and participate in locally hosted-sessions. This advanced collaboration option is available to enterprises for $9,995.
