What is advantage of Cloud Database using VWS API

April 10, 2013 - 11:14pm #1

I have read Cloud Database of Vuforia what I get is that we can upload and change Image targets and update app dynamically by with the help of our own CMS and we can't upload or change our Objects which will show after detection of marker. So what I tought what is the advantage of Cloud Database if we bound to use our own CMS and can't upload objects. We can uplaod and change object using our own CMS and also markers(by uploading .xml and .dat ) we can achieve target what Vuforia is trying to give. The only difference is that we don't have to go Vuforia website to change markers just to change from our own CMS(as I got from reading). So don't understand why and what is the advantage of Vuforia VWS?

Thanks in advance. Cheers.

What is advantage of Cloud Database using VWS API

Hi, the main advantage of the VWS is that it allows you to upload images to a Cloud Database (which has quite some big differences with the "Device Databases" that rely on the XML and DAT files);

one of the main differences is that the Cloud Database allows you to store thousands of image targets, up to 1 million targets; then the Cloud Reco application on your phone / tablet will be able to recognize at runtime any image target which is contained in the Cloud Database.

A Device Database instead (XML and DAT files) will only support up to 100 targets.

So, even if technically you can use your own CMS to upload XML and DAT files (as you say), the functionality and level of service (in particular the large amount of targets) offered by a Cloud Database is what makes the main difference.
