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.

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.”

We are pleased to host the virtual streaming of the  Federal Consortium for Virtual World (FCVW) annual event, at the National Defense University in Washington D.C., on May 13th and May 14th , 2010.

The FCVW, also a 3DXplorer client, is using both the Meet-in-3D application (note the navigation bar on the home page), and the Online Meeting application for webinars.

Sign up for live webinars from Altadyn CEO Darius Lahoutifard featuring new integrated in-world voice technology.

3DXplorer is the most accessible platform hosting the event and the only one which does not require neither installation nor registration. Hundreds of visitors are expected to attend FCVW 2010 conference virtually on 3DXplorer. Want to be one of those? Want to see how the new VOIP works in 3DXplorer?  Sign up now.

Built-in Web-native Browser-based VOIP in 3DXplorer: You asked for it, you got it!

As a customer-driven company, Altadyn has constantly been listening to users demands and Voice over Internet Protocol commonly called VOIP, was on top of the list since a while.  To satisfy our customers, we evaluated several VOIP technologies on the market, but noticed that they all require that the end-users download a client software. We believe that 3D web conferencing and virtual events markets will become mainstream only if they are easy to use, and accessible to all. That’s why we developed our own java based VOIP technology which works seamlessly in the browser.  With what we have come up with, in order to attend a meeting, a user just presses on the invitation link received by e-mail and enters the space; he/she immediately hears the attendees voice; nothing to install, no other action required.

The VOIP enabled version is available to all users as of this week, under “Test”. To use it, login to your account, then open your 3D space settings page, under tab “Version” you usually see “LastRelease”. Change it to “Test”. As soon as you do this change, any visitor entering this space will be using the test release, which has Voice enabled.

When a new user walks into your voice-enabled space, he/she will hear whatever is going on in the room, but he/she is not heard, until the “Voice” button is activated. This button appears on the upper left corner of the screen.

A voice icon appears over the head of the avatar who talks, so that everyone can notice who’s talking.

Moderators can cut voice by pressing the  “Mute Audience” button at any time.

Beside the cutting edge VOIP feature, new functionalities have been released:

–          2 weeks free trial for all 3DXplorer products,

–          New meeting planner with invitation text supporting 8 different languages for 3DX/Online Meeting and 3DX/Conferencing

–          Customized invitation templates for 3DX/Online Meeting and 3DX/Conferencing

–          Drastically enhanced features for software developers using 3DX/API

Enjoy the new features, and give feedback to us. Your opinion matters!

The easiest way to attend Virtual Edge on Feb 22 & 23, and to network there, from your desk.

Those of you who are interested in the Virtual Events Market, but are not planning to go to Santa Clara on Feb 22 & 23 are cordially  invited to experience Virtual Edge on 3DXplorer virtual events platform.

We are offering the easiest way to participate, with no download, no installation, not even any additional registration required for the 3DXplorer platform. Despite all the simplicity, you can still walk in with your avatar, feel the space and the event, meet and network with other participants through chat and take away the best  of networking and conferencing.

Just be there on time, number of seats is limited.

Here’s the precious link to use and to keep

3DXplorer V5 Takes 3D Live Collaboration To The Cloud

As pre-announced a few weeks ago, 3DXplorer V5 is now released. Among the new features of this scalable, efficient, reliable, flexible and secure cloud-based network architecture are additional choices and categories of avatars, capacity for more than 100 avatars simultaneously in a single space (with 3DX/Conferencing), intranet installations with unlimited number of rooms (3DX/Enterprise Edition). V5 offers white label services for marketing partners and includes increased possibilities for customizations.

For the first time, an immersive and interactive web3D platform is offered on a cloud-based architecture. 3DXplorer being browser-based with no download required, enables users to collaborate live, leaning on their set of distributed resources. Primary resources which can each be on a different server on the cloud are:

–          The application: 3DXplorer

–          Static data including the 3D space, and all related 2D/3D content

–          Dynamic synchronized data including the multi-user session service, the streamed data server for presentations, remote access, the chat server.

Cloud-based architectures reduce cost of maintenance, increase scalability, flexibility and reliability. Security is also improved as customers benefit from an easy to maintain SaaS application, while hosting sensitive data internally and inaccessible from outside the firewall. Another benefit of this architecture is increased performance due to the user-defined relay servers. Customers around the world, can now easily setup their own local intranet or web servers relaying their meetings live, faster than global servers. Possible combinations are endless using 3DXplorer cloud-based architecture.

3DXplorer V5 also offers Altadyn’s partners the capacity of building their own branded SaaS applications, using the same platform as Altadyn, and offering value added services to their customers. Initial users of this white label SaaS are Altadyn’s content provider partners and 3D builders.

V5 avatars can now be represented in three levels of resolution: low poly (or low-resolution) avatars, adapted for large conferences, or high poly (or high resolution) avatars adapted for smaller groups.

3DXplorer V5’s new packaging enables customers to start with the 3DX/Platform, free of charge, then upgrade to applications such as 3DX/Online Meeting, 3DX/Meet in 3D or 3DX/Conferencing, depending on their needs.

Finally, 3DXplorer V5 integrates the recently announced new product 3DX/Conferencing under the same user account and the same interface, together with existing products 3DX/Online Meeting and 3DX/Meet-in-3D.

Full release notes of the V5 (details of new features) are available here:

Enjoy V5 which is live and in “Last Release” status since last week-end!

3DXplorer Collaborative Platform for Enterprises Launched

We are glad to announce, as we did it to the press yesterday, the release of 3DXplorer new product line, 3DXplorer Enterprise Edition, with immediate availability.  All 3DXplorer SaaS based products are now also available for installation on corporate servers behind the firewall.

Enterprise

Demanding customers with specific requirements in terms of performance of the servers, security of their data, or even due to specific geographic distribution of their users, now have the choice of using their own network infrastructure and use 3DXplorer as a traditional software, installed on their own servers and managed by their own IT team, instead of using it in the standard SaaS mode (Software as a Service).

scalable_customer

Tiered product levels allow for efficient customer adoption and implementation. Customers can start with immediately available SaaS plans, and progress smoothly from testing a proof-of concept to integrating a matured solution by leveraging our dual SaaS/Enterprise model (diagram 1).   The Enterprise Edition server software itself is easy to install, requires minimal bandwidth to deliver and only a low-grade computer for end-users to access (no software or plug-ins needed to install on end-user computers). In fact, the deployment is extremely simple as there is no client software to install.  The Enterprise Edition puts full control of development and customization in customers hands.

Practical 3D Applications
•    Enterprise Social Networking – provide an immersive networking and socializing tool that
keeps private communications behind your firewalls
•    Enterprise Conferencing in 3D – import 3D products into your virtual rooms for
collaborative product development meetings, or display confidential strategic presentations

•    Enterprise Training & Simulations in 3D – develop interactive synchronous training
environments and deploy training sessions to everyone within your organization securely
•    Enterprise eLearning – add powerful interactive 3D to your Learning Management
