The latest MellaniuM environment has illustrated the radical proposition that high polygon models can be imported into the NORTEL web.alive web-browser client. http://ec3v3.projectchainsaw.com/ .
The anti-aliasing feature further enhances the immersive character of the space.
NORTEL's APEX environment already allows for a maximum concurrency of >500 participants with private meeting rooms and presentation screens which will allow for the input of pdf,ppt and jpg files. The rooms have video screens running continuously, the ability in some areas of web page browsing and file sharing between participants in close proximity.
The new beta 2.0 web.alive now includes the script for taking a load off and sitting in the lounge at the APEX "office complex".
So now it seems all that remains for a viable conferencing capability is a solid high level of concurrency, enough to allow for several ongoing presentations in separate spaces with groups of individuals at"water-cooler type vantage points. Well it's all possible at http://apex.projectchainsaw.com/
Would you be possibly interested in gathering a group of your colleagues together for a full test of the technology on Friday, November 27th at 12 pm NOON (EST) A successful conclusion would prove the value of web.alive as a viable conferencing platform.
COME ONE: COME ALL! AND TAKE A LOAD OFF (your mind that is, if this works you really will know what is possible)
