Web3D Consortium announces Versar, Inc. joining as a Directing Member taking a leadership role in developing open solutions using X3D. As Web3D distribution channels mature, there is considerable interest in improving the handling of interactive 3D using X3D4 Graphics Standard capabilities as the public-facing presentation layer. This convergence is exciting with the recent government contract to Swift River Versar JV to reduce the effects of land corrosion at U.S. Naval facilities. We welcome Versar to the Web3D community.
