IMA/Thales SceneGate Viewer for OpenSimulator
Lisa Laxton, Natacha Bru, Frank Rulof, Seth Nygard
Presentation Abstract: This presentation from Infinite Metaverse Alliance® (IMA) and Thales Group discusses development of a new open source viewer for the OpenSimulator community focused on improvements in usability, accessibility, and interoperability. Development is driven by inclusive “design thinking” while adding capabilities for the future to address gaps in development aimed at the needs of new users and those with different abilities that may be digitally marginalized. The SceneGate Viewer project is one of several R&D projects integrated with decentralized OpenSimulator development supporting the mission to advance virtual worlds, virtual reality, and synthetic environments. The work of IMA and Thales is in general directed toward broadening use of the Metaverse for Public, Education, Industry and Government sectors but the community as a whole benefits from open source.
Target Audience & Outcomes: Participants from the OpenSimulator Community at large will learn about enhancements, features, and improvements IMA and Thales are working on together to deliver a new open source solution that meets the needs of a broader OpenSimulator community addressing issues related to onboarding, usability, accessibility, interoperability, performance, security, and standards.
