New Release, 3DXplorer V5.02.00 is Live Today!

Shortly after our previous release of March 1st , we are pleased to announce a new release with exciting new features; 3DXplorer V5.02.00 includes important feature enhancements and additions which drastically improve Virtual Events experience for attendees :

1) There are now three different chat possibilities:

  • Global chat visible to all attendees
  • One to one private chat
  • Group chats, private, visible to a selected number of users, but not to all

2)  Direct interaction with other participants or through a names list:

  • Attendees can see the list of other participants, and start communicating / interacting with them, either by clicking on their avatars, or through the list.
  • Moderators can also interact with participants either graphically or through the list.

3) Improved user interface:

  • New buttons have been added to enable the above features. They are all regrouped in the upper left corner of the screen.
  • The avatar’s control pop-up (the former chat) has been removed. The chat window can be started by pressing on the chat button and it will pop up automatically on other attendees window.
  • Avatars’ animations, when possible (ie: high res avatars) are now accessible under “My Avatar” button.

4) Video broadcast in sync:

  • When linking a video to a screen, It’s now possible to either have it “broadcast in-sync” so that  start /stop of the video , by a moderator or a VIP, will happen simultaneously for all users, or keep the former asynchronous mode, having users watch their video “on demand”.

This release is up and running as of today, March 13th , 2010.

And remember, no installation, no update, no download required…Enjoy it.

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.
