Interactive 3D App Offered to Ad Developers

Intervista Software, a provider of 3D platforms and applications, launched WorldView for Developers, an ActiveX control that enables developers to embed interactive 3D into their applications, including advertisements.

Rather than building a graphics system from low-level libraries such as OpenGL or Direct 3D, developers can now concentrate on content defined with VRML, the SO standard for interactive 3D, the company said.

Based on Intervista's WorldView browser, WorldView for Developers may be used in application containers developed in any Windows development environment, including Microsoft's Visual Basic and Visual C++ as well as COM-enabled Java development tools.

"WorldView for Developers makes it easy for software vendors running on Internet time to create innovative, market leading applications," said Tony Parisi, CEO of Intervista Software.

WorldView for Developers is freely available for development and evaluation purposes. Support and run-time distribution requires a license.
