  2. 2. About PIXIEVIEWER In July 2012 i started the PIXIEVIEWER project, just to explore new technologies and to see how far it can be pushed. Feb 2013 – My first Tweet Sunny Salamander ‫‏‬@SunnySalamander15 Feb #Pixieviewer goes iPad.

  6. 6. Prim Conversion With PIXIEVIEWER all Prim data is converted into MESH. The conversion work is done by the clients! ..and stored back to the backbone (via the API) For the conversion PIXIEVIEWER is measuring the Client´s network speed and Browser Capabilities and Powers. It will pick the most powerful Clients to do the conversion, if none is available the Backbone will do the conversion. This will make sure that also slim clients, like Smartphones and Tablets, can access all content. PIXIEVIEWER PIXIETEC UG Germany
  7. 7. Head Mounted Devices PIXIEVIEWER PIXIETEC UG Germany PIXIEVIEWER 3D Rendering Drone Flying
  8. 8. Encryption and Content Security Content: is converted into a MESH format and it is made available via http Accessible to everyone. There is no special protection in place. There is a permission system, different to OpenSimulator. -Visitors (render, view) -Members (contribute, modify – limited to the current scene) -Administrators (full access) Each Mesh and all Textures do have a user specific Watermark.

  9. 9. Encryption and Content Security Encryption: - PIXIEVIEWER in it´s Standalone Version supports Client to Client Encryption - Keys are shared secretly (commercial version only) - A special Encryption covers public Chat and private IM - Audio and Video Conferencing is secured by SSL (weak, as we learned) - Encryption is weak for scenes connected to OpenSimulator, because the connection to OpenSimulator cannot be secured. - If connected to OpenSimulator, Client encrytion cannot be used.
