Making 3D work for you: Web3D Consortium at Siggraph 2014

The Web3D Consortium will have a significant presence at SIGGRAPH 2014 in Vancouver, Canada(Aug 10-14) in Booth 1045 and Birds of the Feather sessions to demonstrate and discuss how 3D can work for you. You can also join this Web3D community at the Web3D 2014 Conference (August 8-10). Come network with leading Web3D technologists and join the 3D revolution!

SIGGRAPH 2014 in Vancouver, Canada Aug 10-14 is the largest annual conference for computer graphics and interactive techniques. During this major event, Web3D Consortium members are showing the broad impacts of multiple application using X3D Graphics, the royalty-free International Standard for Web-based graphics. Booth 1045 is our origin point! Where you will see robust cross platform X3D systems. The Web3D Consortium will also sponsors several events including Birds-of-a-Feather meetings.

Web data-integration capabilities and a rich set of componentized features are expanding for X3D. Working groups are providing new value in critical industry application areas such as Augmented/Mixed Reality, CAD, Geospatial and Medical. Robust, cross-platform web applications again prove that X3D is a compelling, interoperable technology ranging from mobile devices to interactive networked virtual environments to large-scale CAVE displays.

The evolution of X3D to version 4 will provide a fully compatible and integrated environment with HTML5 while maintaining backwards compatibility. The development team is using X3DOM as the prototype. X3DOM is an open-source framework developed by Web3D Consortium member Fraunhofer IGD. It displays X3D content in an HTML5 browser environment without the need for a plugin.

At Siggraph in Booth 1045, key Web3D members Bitmanagement and Fraunhofer IGD will demonstrate industrial-strength X3D software and applications. More X3D technology discussions can be found at multiple SIGGRAPH Birds of the Feather sessions including: X3D/X3DOM, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Medical Visualization, Mixed/Augmented Reality (MAR), Geospatial, Humanoid Animation, and Cultural Heritage. Each event is a must-attend opportunity to educate yourself in emerging 3D developments.  All events for the Web3D Conference and SIGGRAPH are listed online in our detailed event information.

There has been no better time to discuss X3D technologies and join this innovative 3D Web community. Come visit us on the show floor in Booth 1045. Also join this Web3D community at the Web3D 2014 Conference (August 8-10) . Surprise: you won’t believe it’s all real time 3D! Come network with leading Web3D technologists and join the revolution.
