ALTADYN® Introduces Patent Pending Technology For 3D Virtual Events With No Download Required

ALTADYN® Introduces Patent Pending Technology For 3D Virtual Events With No Download Required | eLearning related topics | Scoop.it

Altadyn announced its new platform: www.3D-VirtualEvents.com . Offered in SaaS mode on the cloud, it has been designed for corporations and event professionals who want to stay away from boring slideshow-driven webcasts, in favor of more engaging and entertaining ways to run virtual events like virtual conferences, virtual training, virtual classrooms, virtual tradeshows and other virtual meetings. “Compared to our previous platform, www.3D-VirtualEvents.com is much easier to set up, being instantly available by use of our new wizard,” said Darius Lahoutifard, Altadyn’s CEO. ”The updated user interface allows event attendees to take advantage of the rich and engaging aspect of a 3D avatar-based platform without the learning curve which usually goes with it. Altadyn’s patent pending technology is based on a disruptive technology that makes high-end 3D immersive spaces for collaboration accessible to users with mainstream computers in enterprise environments. While similar technologies require heavy or proprietary software downloads and installations, www.3D-VirtualEvents.com runs in current browsers on typical office computers and only requires Java, the largely installed open source component.”


Here are some key elements of Altadyn’s technology included in a small Java applet, which loads seamlessly as the user clicks on a hyperlink:

- A fully immersive 3D engine with physics capabilities
- Customized avatars able to walk, sit, talk, raise hands, manipulate objects, point objects or screens with laser pointers, and more
- Desktop sharing and remote control
- Synchronized 3D object manipulation: rotation, translation, scaling. - Optimal for product design review, product training, product launch, games, and more
- Integrated voice over IP
- Integrated instant messaging – moderated, private or public
- Integrated in-world audio and video streaming
- Open architecture enabling users to import 3D objects and 3D spaces from other external 3D formats
- Open API enabling development in Java, Javascript, and HTML5
