Bitmanagement 3D Software for geo data visualization gets certification from the US Navy / Broad interest for 3D viewer technology from Germany / Peter Schickel: "Boeing, Microsoft, Dassault and Lightworks among the interested visitors at the shared web3(PresseBox) (Berg near Munich, )
More over also well known companies showed broad interest after presentation from Bitmanagment during the the Siggraph 2010 (July 25.- July 29) in L.A., CA. E.g. Boeing is interested in the city modelling technology, which has been demonstrated by Bitmanagement. Microsoft gathered information about a SDK for Smart-Phones. Dassault Systems (3ds) intends via its daughter company Spatial Corp. to integrate Bitmanagements viewer technology for its online CAD applications and Lightworks a successful computer graphic supplier will use the BS Contact Viewer for online based applications.
"Generally the trend was evident that also big companies increasingly consider the integration of our internet ready and interactive 3D visualization technology in their products and concepts what our customer focused portfolio of CAD, GIS and games segments is concerned. These segments come along more and more in addition to the ongoing hype applications like AR (augmented reality) and stereoscopy", reports Peter Schickel also from the Siggraph 2010.
One issue in particular has been highly regarded at the Siggraph 2010 the up coming standard Web GL. Web GL will be the standard for hardware accelerated browser based 3D graphic. The basis of WebGL the Open GL (Open Graphics Library) has by now become OpenGL 4.1 (after 3.1 in 2009), according to an announcement at the fair. The interface is based on Open GL and will be developed by Khronos Group in the US, as well as by Mozilla, Google and AMD. OpenGL is a specification for a platform and language independent programming interface for developing 2D and 3D computer graphics.
With presentations on five different tech talk events and contributions to conferences as well as with an exhibition at the shared Web3D booth Bitmanagement as exhibitor could target for the fourth time a bigger circle of large companies as well as students who are interested in real time rendering technology. Because Bitmanagement is hireing developers specific C+++ programmers in order to broaden its portfolio, a number of constructive interviews already have been held with software specialists at the Siggraph..
