Altadyn to Show 3DXplorer at I/ITSEC in Orlando

IITSEC-logoAltadyn will show 3DXplorer v5 at this year’s Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), scheduled to take place in Orlando, Florida from November 30 to December 3, 2009.

I/ITSEC, the world’s largest modeling and simulation event, promotes cooperation among the armed services, industry, academia and various government agencies in pursuit of improved training and education programs. It has existed in various forms since 1966. This year, the conference features over 18,000 registrants, with about half of the registrants coming from government.

Altadyn will showcase the latest product releases including:

  • 3DXplorer Conferencing: allows large capacities with over 100 avatars in a 3D space.
  • 3DXplorer Enterprise: can be installed behind a firewall for full security and scalability.
  • 3DX/Online Meeting : enable the creation of easily accessible virtual 3D meeting rooms, classrooms, working spaces.
  • 3DX/Meet-in-3D: a 3D lobby right on your home page, helps transforming your anonymous visitors into qualifiable prospects

Interactive training is becoming increasingly important as an educational tool. Simulations give participants the opportunity to experience the consequences of decisions they might be called on to make in real world situations. Interactive training simulations develop interest, increase participant attention span, and because they are experiential, leave a lasting impression. Simulations promote active participation, giving the trainees a sense of control over both the content and pace of what they are learning.

3DXplorer’s browser-based download-free solution facilitates the accessibility of interactive training in government applications. Eliminating the need to download client software when deploying 3D virtual conferences, training, and simulations makes 3DXplorer ideal for use in strict IT environments where security is a prime consideration.

Cubic Defense Applications and Aptima, Inc. are among 3DXplorer customers that will be exhibiting at I/ITSEC.

We’ll be at booth 2821. If you’re attending the conference, please stop by and say hello.

3DXplorer Powers Online Aviation Expo

onlineexpo2

Indiana based FBO Academy, the training institute for the aviation service industry is using 3DXplorer’s cutting-edge 3D technology to power its Virtual Online Aviation Expo. The expo is a permanent virtual hall dedicated to Fixed Base Operator (FBO) professionals in the aviation industry.

The Online Aviation Expo utilizes 3DXplorer to create a virtual 3D space that allows vendors and visitors to interact with each another. Participants can view products and displays from a variety of vendors from the comfort of their home or office computers using standard web browsers—without the use of any plug-ins.

Attendees can move through the virtual expo space using 3D avatars that can communicate with each other with live text chat or with audio via Skype.

Vendors are able to reach thousands of potential customers and clients, eliminating the cost usually associated with trade shows, such as travel, food, and lodging.

Since the Online Aviation Expo is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, it isn’t limited by time constraints. Attendees can visit anytime—at their leisure.


Visitors and those interested in exhibiting can view the site while the virtual expo space is being created.
