Project R-325


Interactive threedimensional multimedia environments on PC


This research project has to be seen in the context of interactive 3D multimedia environments on personal computers. Using state of the art libraries that are available on PC's (such as DirectX of Microsoft), the project aims the development of a number of basic software tools which will enable the real-time manipulation of 3D multimedia environments. This project also includes the research for the realisation of a basic environment in which 3D visualisation on PC becomes possible. The graphics component and also the sound component (3D sound) are important aspects of this project. Simultaneous interaction in the 3D multimedia environment through networking will also be investigated.
