3D Engine of Bitmanagement for real-time und online capable content supports Oculus Rift
Bitmanagement Software GmbH located near Munich, Germany, is developing "Interactive 3D Web" - software. Focus is on the one hand side the product line of the 3D engine "BS Contact", that is used cross-platform for various operating systems and cross-browser for various internet-browsers as C++ plug-in - with special versions as "BS Contact Geo" for big CAD and GIS data-visualization online but also as "BS Contact Stereo" for special hardware like autostereoscopic monitors, CAVE-projections or now the Oculus Rift headset. On the other hand a second product line for workflow tools is developed with focus on "BS Content Studio", that re-uses 3D geometry for easy composing, animation and publishing 3D content optimized for various platforms.
For "BS Contact Stereo" support of the actual state of the art headset called Oculus Rift has been implemented. The user of this virtual reality device feels like in a world totally generated by a computer - in full screen modus without visual perception of the real world. The tied hardware is a head mounted display (HMD) acting as a visual output device located at once head that is showing 3D content close to once eyes. The Oculus Rift headset as virtual reality spectacles has sensors for recognition of the head-movements, so that the 3D world that is rendered in "BS Contact Stereo" can consider the viewing direction for the orientation in the virtual world. If the user e.g. is looking to the left side in the real world - the 3D scene rendered and presented in the Oculus headset shows in real-time how the virtual world continues left. Accordingly someone is descending with high realism into another world and is feeling like being located at another place.
Because of focus on X3D format - which enables interoperability for the most geometry tools - in the 3D engine of Bitmanagement the existing content can be used for interactive visualization and - if prepared properly - even only.
Bitmanagement Software GmbH
Bitmanagement is a provider of multimedia software with a focus on online interactive 3D visualization. The multimedia technology for 2D/3D, audio and video is real-time and Internet-ready. Based on the ISOstandard formats VRML/X3D, CityGML and COLLADA, and Java, it allows an Interactive visualization of concepts and products.
Bitmanagement develops and markets a product portfolio of visualization software, which is composed of visualization software (BS Contact VRML / X3D, MPEG-4, Geo, Stereo and Mobile), documentation (BS SDK Package) for animation and different programming tools up to Workflow optimization such as BS Encrypt.
Besides software development the company specializes on content production. The focus is here on creation of interactive online capable 3D models - mainly high resolution city models - based on a cost efficient offshore team of 3D artists.
Bitmanagement was founded in 2002 by three former employees of the Blaxxun Interactive AG, Munich. The company achieved sales growth and positive results in 2011 and is "cash flow positive" since its founding.
Bitmanagement is a board member of the "Web3D Consortium" (USA), which is responsible for the standardization and dissemination of 3D ISO standards for the Internet. Bitmanagement is also simultaneously a member of the" 3D Consortium "for the dissemination of stereoscopic visualization.
