3DXplorer at the University of Washington

University of Washington is one of the most active universities in the field of Virtual Worlds and one of the rare ones delivering a certificate in Virtual Worlds, under Randy Hinrichs’ leadership.

Like last year, 3DXplorer is one of the few platforms being studied during this course, in 2010. Last week, I was pleased to speak to this group of very motivated and skillful students, and share with them some elements of our vision, at Altadyn. The evolution of the 3D and especially the web 3D technologies in the past 20 years, different generations of web3D, the corporation requirements for live collaboration technologies based on virtual worlds , other market requirements , as well as the future trends, were among the subjects we covered.


The above are pictures of last week’s virtual classroom in one of the 3DXplorer conference rooms.

I enjoyed the event and look forward to seeing all the 2010 students playing an active role in this market soon, if not already.

If you have a customized list of avatars in your space, please keep in mind that your list will not be updated automatically. You need to go to the settings’ page of your space and decide if you want your visitors to choose the new avatars or not, and allow them in your space.

The new avatars have been created upon suggestions of two of our most recent customers, both interested in younger avatars.

Enjoy using them!

Test Your Configuration Before Using 3DXplorer

You can now test your configuration here, before entering a 3DXplorer space!

Although 3DXplorer is download-free and browser-based, it’s still a relatively sophisticated application: a real-time 3D engine including a multi-user environment with chat, VOIP, desktop sharing, remote control, and much more. As a result, it does require some system and network characteristics as presented here.

3DXplorer Diagnostics tool for virtual events

The new diagnostic tool provides information on:

  • Your network speed up to our servers,
  • Your Browser and some of it’s key options,
  • Your Java configuration
  • And more….

After a period of successful test, this tool will be integrated into all standard logins to any 3DXplorer space. Feel free to try it now, and feedback on this post.

Enjoy your diagnostics!

Phase2Solutions Increases Revenue Thanks To 3DXplorer Products!

Experts in Central PA have their own website: CentralPAExperts.com . It was created to provide local business professionals with a resource and online community to assist in the advancement of commerce in the Central Pennsylvania region. This website serves as an interactive resource for local professionals to get answers to their questions, an opportunity to read expert articles that are pertinent to their professional life and an opportunity for them to share their expert knowledge and meet others within their business community.

Two 3DXplorer solutions  have recently been added to the site  (see here):

3DXplorer Meet-in-3D (3DX/Mi3D) : NEW 3D Virtual Office featured added to 3D Expert Lounge on website allowing each expert to have their own virtual space for private business meetings, sales presentations, etc.

3DXplorer Virtual Events Platform: Expert Virtual Events feature added allowing Expert Members to host virtual events in our 3D Conference Hall. Events are designed to attract new clients and providing valuable information to visitors at the same time.

CentralPaExperts uses 3DXplorer

The site is owned and operated by Phase 2 Solutions, whose President, Jason Verdelli states:

“Engaging website visitors on a consistent basis can be a difficult task. Just earlier this year I was looking for a program that would engage my website visitor at http://www.centralpaexperts.com to interact virtually the same way we do in “real life”. Most of the solutions out on the web that I was searching for were too over-priced and were not practical for a small to medium sized company. Then I found 3DXplorer. I was sold the minute I entered their 3D virtual conference room having actually talked, not typed, with staff members and be able to ask questions and collaborate in a way that simply is not out there on the web today. Visitors that attend events in my 3D space tend to buy more because they can interact closer to what I or someone on my staff is presenting. Overall, using their space has resulted in over $15,700 in revenue from new clients resulting from presentations recently. Clients have also mentioned that they prefer using the 3D space because there are no downloads and it is easy to use.”

Virtual Events: Why Settle For 2D or even 2.5D, If You Can Maximize Networking with Full 3D?

Attendees socialize and network naturally in Full 3D as it’s more engaging, gives a closer to face-to-face experience, and more real! Attendees are free to walk to where ever they like in an exhibition hall, or inside a booth, engage in conversations with others through Voice/IP, private chat or global chat, access to each other’s public profile and get the best of a virtual show. 3DXplorer is:

* More Networking
* More Engagement
* Closer to Face-to-Face
.Virtual Event: Virtual Trade Show
See for yourself. Attend  a Live Full 3D presentation and see if it works for your next Virtual Event !

The best way to see what your attendees will feel is to try it by yourself and attend one of our own virtual conferences in full 3D. If you like it as an attendee, then your virtual event’s attendees will love it.
