Revolutionizing 3D: The 17th Annual Web3D Conference Celebrates Milestone of 3D Innovation

Share Article

The seventeenth annual International Web3D Conference will showcase X3D, the only open, royalty-free and ISO-certified technology available today for interactive 3D graphics on the World Wide Web. With over a decade of innovation X3D continues to grow and provide unprecedented value for the capability, longevity and ownership of 3D content. Come see these innovative X3D systems and join the Web3D Consortium and become a part of this evolving standard.

The Seventeenth annual International Web3D Conference will be held on Aug 4 and 5, 2012 at the LA Convention center, Los Angeles, California USA . The Web3D Conference is collocated with Siggraph 2012 and is co-sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH in cooperation with Eurographics, and the Web3D Consortium.

The conference is a major annual event that unites researchers, developers and content creators in a dynamic learning environment to address a wide range of topics related to 3D multimedia on the Web. With peer-reviewed papers, workshops, tutorials, and panels, the Web3D Conference provides a potent opportunity to discuss advances in Web3D including the latest research activities and industry standards initiatives.

At the Conference, industry leaders will demonstrate how to implement interoperable 3D systems like X3D for interactive 3D content. Come see and learn about these innovative X3D systems, especially new features in the ISO X3D Version 3.3.

X3D now offers declarative 3D in HTML5 as well as expressive volume visualization functionality. With multiple encodings and API bindings for a common scene graph model, it is compatible with the broad range of web and industry technologies. The data integration capacities and the rich set of componentized features of X3D are expanding and providing new value in areas such as Geospatial, Augmented Reality, CAD, and Medical applications. Such robust, cross-platform web applications prove once again that X3D is a compelling, interoperable expression for interactive networked virtual environments.

Following the Web3D Conference, at SIGGRAPH 2012, these latest X3D systems and innovations will be showcased at the Web3D Consortium booth(234), Birds-Of-a-Feather meetings and an exhibitor Tech Talk.

About the Web3D Consortium: The Web3D Consortium is a member-funded industry consortium involved in many technical initiatives across the 4D value chain(3D objects and Behaviors). and is committed to the creation and deployment of open ISO, royalty-free standard X3D, that enable the communication of real-time 3D across applications, networks, and XML web services. The Consortium works closely with the International Organization for Standarization (ISO), Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG) and has active projects with Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine (DICOM),), KHRONOS and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standardization bodies to maximize market opportunities for its membership.
