Web3D Consortium’s Monthly News Brief
BOX OF X3D
Web3D Membership Benefits
February 2020 Highlights:
Versar Joins Web3D Consortium as a directing member to drive Web3D standards.
The Web3D Consortium strives to provide great benefits to it members in the area of 3D computer graphics standards. Web3D Consortium membership is fully open to industry, government agencies, academia and individual professionals. Members collaboratively develop the Consortium’s standard X3D and tools making them widely adopted across diverse markets.
This Month Versar joins the Web3D Consortium as a directing member. Versar intends to take a leadership role to drive Web3D’s ISO standard X3D, a standard that integrates delivery of real-time 3D graphics. Versar intends to lead the business and interoperability Working Groups. As Web3D distribution channels mature, there is considerable interest in improving the handling of interactive 3D and using X3D as the presentation layer. X3D has proven its value across government and industry as an open, cross-platform format for interactive 3D. This convergence is even more important for Versar’s recently awarded government contract to develop a comprehensive plan to reduce the effects of land corrosion at United States Naval facilities.
You can also help drive the evolution of 3D graphics on the Web by Joining the Web3D Consortium.
Web3D Consortium standards are open and royalty-free. Through over two decades of work X3D is recognized world-wide as the only international standard for the communication of 3D scenes in multiple applications.
Here are some of the benefits that come with Web3D membership:
- Influence Web3D technology and industry of the future by voting on standards
- Show the industry you are the leader who is helping make interoperable 3D a reality
- Partner with our members and speed time to market
- Access to Industry-wide perspectives to help make informed strategic decisions
- Learn lessons and best practices from industry leaders (avoiding costly mistakes!)
- Get immediate access and influence on development of new Web3D standards
- Voting in Board of Directors elections and draft specification submissions to ISO
- Proposal partnerships with other members, liaisons with multiple standards organizations.
- Draft specification documents access at Web3D Consortium github.
The Consortium provides benefits to members in the areas of:
- Member Access
There are great opportunities to network and collaborate with leading Web3D experts. The Consortium is a member-driven organization involved in many technical initiatives across the 3D value chain. We are a member-funded industry consortium and work closely with the ISO, MPEG and have active projects with OGC, DICOM, IMS, KHRONOS and W3C standardization bodies to maximize market opportunities for our membership.
- Working Group Participation
All members may join Working Groups where they have an opportunity to actively participate and contribute towards the development of the specification and get early access to the specification under development. All Web3D standardization efforts are part of our Working Group All decisions are consensus based, receiving both Member and community review.
- Speaking Opportunities
The Consortium frequently invites members to present at conferences, panels, and forums to highlight their work in support of Consortium goals and objectives. The audience is other professionals in the field representing industry, government, and the press.
- Joint Marketing Initiatives
The Consortium markets its products (specifications) and includes work by its members in press releases, newsletters, website, public forums, and other distribution channels. The Consortium attends several trade shows every year – booth partnerships are available only to members.
- Opportunities for Consortium Leadership
The Board of Directors provides leadership and direction to the Consortium. Any member can be a candidate for a seat on the Board. These are highly visible positions within the computer graphics and standards communities for the individual and the organization.

Join the Consortium and have access to Industry-wide perspectives to help make informed strategic decisions and build your next open 3D application! There are many benefits that come with Web3D membership. Our marketing website, WebX3D.org and our series of educational Webinars on X3D technology helps you get started with X3D. Learn more about our Working Groups and other initiative in our Newsletter.
X3D is your hub for publishing 3D data. A higher-level language to compose several 3D assets into meaningful 3D Web applications for publishing 3D with interactivity. Check out Web3D member use cases and join this innovative 3D graphics community.
Web3D Consortium is a nonprofit organization that develops and maintains the X3D, VRML, and HAnim international standards. These are 3D graphics file formats and run-time specifications for the delivery and integration of interactive 3D data over networks. Web3D Consortium members work together to produce open, royalty-free and ISO-ratified capabilities for the Web. For more information please contact us at email@example.com.
