Bluebeam’s Studio® Platform helps teams and organizations manage projects anywhere – regardless of Internet access. Upload and share an unlimited number of PDFs and any other file type to the cloud or on your own server. Access these files to collaborate on the same 2D and 3D PDFs in real time, or any time, with project partners around the world. There are no limits to what you can do when leveraging the combined powers of Revu and Studio.


BLUEBEAM STUDIO

REVU COMES WITH POWERFUL DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT AND REAL-TIME COLLABORATION FEATURES.

Studio Projects give you a single centralized location to store documents—even entire building projects—in the cloud. And Studio Sessions let project teams review, mark up, modify and update the same files at the same time. So partners worldwide can instantly connect on the same set of documents.

Bluebeam currently offers three different versions of Studio.

Studio – Bluebeam Studio is the free cloud-based version included with every copy of Bluebeam Revu.

Studio Prime – Studio Prime is a subscription-based cloud solution, offering administrative functions and access to external applications using the Bluebeam Studio API.

Studio Enterprise – Studio Enterprise lets customers host and manage Bluebeam Studio on their own servers, behind their firewall. It provides greater control over system security, user access and Studio activity.
