New Release, 3DXplorer V5.01.02 is Live!

3DXplorer V5.01.02 release includes important feature enhancements and additions that improve Virtual Events experience both for attendees and event administrators:

•    All 3DX Apps: New attendees/visitors login process, in a “wizard” mode , where even guest avatars have some choices of looks at entrance, without having to use the “avatar configurator” for a more customized avatar. As a result, from now on, when embedding a 3DXplorer space inside a web page, a better approach is to use iframes instead of the applet code insertion. Space owners who have inserted the applet inside their HTML pages, continue to work fine with the old user interface.

•   3DX/Conferencing: Passcodes list: Event administrator can now upload a csv file with the list of the attendees and individual passcodes. This feature is particularly helpful for paid events, as each passcode is individual and can’t be used by more than one active avatar.

•    3DX/Conferencing: “Silent mode” now applies to laser pointer too, as they’ll shut down when this mode is active.

•    3DX/Conferencing: Event administrators can now disable Desktop Sharing feature for attendees in 3DX/Conferencing

•    3DX/API: External login supported. Enables avatar login through 3rd party databases.

•    3DX/Studio: objects scripting improved for automatic setup of the space and dynamic content inside the 3D spaces.

•    3DX/Studio: 3D scene settings page improved: contextual help (tooltips), re-organized fields,…

•    3DX/Studio Bugs fixed: Object editor, handlers table, procedure table in the studio, …

The new release is active since last week-end. All users with “Last release” (which is the default option on all spaces), are automatically going to use it with no action required.

Enjoy it.

The French fan Website, French Enigma Forum, has been live for two years and was created by Benjamin Fleurent (popularly known as, “Buzz”).  Buzz decided that 3DXplorer would be the right match for his latest Online project… the creation of an immersive Online 3D space where fans could gather, interact and celebrate the site’s second anniversary.  3DXplorer is browser-based, easy to develop and does not require users to install plug-ins or client downloads.  Buzz was able to create their Online 3D social space in less than a few hours, like most 3DXplorer users.

This is exciting news for Enigma and the French Enigma Forum as they now have an engaging and personal environment for their Online fan community to meet and socialize.  The news is also exciting for 3DXplorer, as exposure to this particular international community moves the technology further forward.

When you visit the French Enigma Forum 3D social space take note of the very special real-time effects and capabilities :

  • Video links that launch Enigma clips (click the wall-mounted flat screen)
  • Highly reflective textures (especially noticeable on the stools in the bar/lounge area)
  • The background musical ambiance

All of this is available for free.  Any Webmaster can create their own lobby or space for Online gatherings and events.  The spaces can be customized to suit any type of business, association or group.

Enjoy it!

Oracle’s Acquisition of Sun Microsystems is a Giant Step Forward for Java!

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has signaled that once the $7.4 billion acquisition of Sun Microsystems is completed, he’ll push aggressively for broader use of Java software — by challenging Google and Microsoft, among others, in developing programs for netbooks, mobile devices and office productivity.

Ellison stated, “I think you’ll see lots and lots of Java devices, some coming from our friends at Google, but I don’t see why some of the devices shouldn’t come from Sun-Oracle,” he said. “There will be computers fundamentally based on Java and JavaFX, devices based on Java and JavaFX, not only from Google but also from Sun.”  Ellison even mentioned he wants to use Sun’s JavaFX Web development tools to beef up OpenOffice, a set of programs developed to rival Microsoft’s Office franchise.

3DXplorer, being Java-based and currently the only immersive and interactive 3D Online development platform which is browser-based and plug-in-less, will have significantly more development applications and an even broader market reach.  As a true enterprise software company, Oracle and its acquisition, is a giant step forward for Java.  3DXplorer developers and users will be in an ideal position to benefit greatly from this push for broader Java use!

No crisis for “Meet in 3D”. Promotional bundles continued.

It’s hard to avoid the bad news these days, with markets going from one extreme to another, trembling the whole economy worldwide. The media, as usual are amplifying the phenomena giving the impression that the world is reaching the end, that companies have stopped working that everybody’s become jobless and that banks are going to close and take your money with them .

Hopefully the reality is not that dark, not only at Altadyn but also for most customers with whom we are dealing. The “Meet in 3D” concept introduced last month has successfully found echo in this tough period. Just during last week, we welcomed three new customers who purchased “Meet in 3D” bundles that we introduced last September during Virtual World Expo in Los Angeles. These customers are from very different fields including a prominent US governmental organization, a mid-size European software vendor and a US based real estate group of companies.

A Meet-in-3D scene

The common point among all is the desire to get in touch with their web visitors, organize spaces for talking and chatting and build their customized accessible world fast (browser-based/plug-in-less) , all at an affordable cost. This is all about 3DXplorer.

Watch our future communications for more on their creations.

Consequently, we decided to extend the time-limited promotional offers for an unlimited period.
