3DXplorer V5 Takes 3D Live Collaboration to the Cloud

New Features Include Over-the-Cloud Distributed Resources, New Applications and White Label Software

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2009) - Altadyn, the developer of 3DXplorer®, the first browser-based plug-in-less 3D platform for live collaboration, announced today full release of 3DXplorer version 5, available immediately online. 3DXplorer V5 is a major release bringing unique, first-of-its-kind and innovative features to the growing web3D market. Among the new features of this 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) and white label services for marketing partners.

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 streamed presentations, remote
    access, avatars motions and the chat.
    

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.

V5 avatars can now be represented in different resolutions: low poly avatars, adapted for large conferences, or high poly 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, for more value.

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.
