The F.A.S.T. Cloud SDK offers a client-side JavaScript API integration of the XStream HDVR rendering engine into your application. The platform provides rapid application development to create rich zero-footprint web applications across a variety of platforms and mobile devices (including iOS, Android, and Windows Phone platforms). The F.A.S.T. Cloud SDK runs on web browsers, tablets (via HTML5) or is embedded inside native applications that run independent of a browser.

Running the F.A.S.T. Cloud SDK

First add your license file into ./foviaserver directory.

If running Windows, execute FoviaLauncher.exe from the top level directory to start the F.A.S.T. Cloud SDK service.

If running Ubuntu or Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), execute launchServer.sh from ./foviaserver directory to start the F.A.S.T. Cloud SDK service. Alternatively for Ubuntu or RHEL distributions, a Docker can be installed following the instructions found inside the Docker ReadMe.

To confirm that the server is running correctly, load the HelloFovia test app into the browser.  If running on a different system, replace localhost with your server's name or IP address. Left-click, right-click, and shift-right-click mouse operations allow manipulation of the volume.  If using a mobile device with this server, standard touch gestures are also supported.  If you encounter issues, please review the installation steps found in Running the F.A.S.T. Cloud SDK.
