Superscape Shows New 3D Web Browser

Superscape VR plc previewed its
Viscape Universal 3D Web Browser at the VRML 98 event being held in
Monterey, CA.


Viscape Universal allows users to browse the thousands of pages of VRML
content on the Internet and to view both VRML 97 and SVR files.


“Our objective in developing Viscape Universal was to provide the best
browser available for users and designers. This product confirms our strong
commitment to the VRML 97 standard and to further boosting the market for
interactive 3D on the Web,” said Paul Beardow, Project Manager for Viscape
Universal at Superscape.


Viscape Universal’s advanced graphics renderer can run on all systems
using Microsoft DirectX. It delivers what the vendor calls “excellent
frame rates” and can take advantage of accelerator cards for
increased performance.


Fully multithreaded to make best use of multiprocessor systems running
Windows NT, it supports spatialized sound and Microsoft Active Movie.


Superscape, the UK’s leading VR software company, is traded on
the London Stock Exchange.
