Does Java really support 3D!? The Java Development Environment has supported i3D, or Interactive 3D, for over five years now, via Java3D. There is a new API called JavaFX 2.0, which supports 3D and has new media elements, which allows amazing things to be created in Java 7 that rival and exceed what can be done in the other popular new media platforms. However, Java is Open Source, and Free for Commercial Use, and is used on most of the new "Intenet 2.0" consumer electronics devices such as SmartPhones (Google Android, Samsung Bada, Blackberry), Tablets (Android, Playbook), PCs, Laptops, NetBooks and iTVs (Samsung Smart TV, GoogleTV, JavaTV).
Aren't Java File Sizes for i3D Huge, like Video or Flashfile sizes are?! Actually, interactive 3D content, which is "Rendered" (processed and drawn in real-time) on the end-user's device (Mobile, Tablet, iTV, PC, Laptop, Netbook, PDA, iDVD, Home Media Center) is comprised primarily of text data, mostly data-points in 3D space and programming logic that makes these points come to life. Thanks to 3D Rendering Technology, new media presentations which are usually 60MB (Flash) to 2GB (Video) will be around 512KB to 2MB using i3D in Java3D or JavaFX 2.0. This represents a difference of up to 1000X times less data footprint in some instances, and makes content Fast!
Can the Java format be used for our Viral Campaigns? Yes. In fact, a truely viral digital new media campaign is one in which the entire campaign content, new media, messaging and interactive entertainment is essentially "free-floating," such that it may be passed along from Viewer (or in the case of interactive, User) to Viewer, as is possible via a Java file. In real life people give viruses to each other, they don't go to a hospital to get them. Clever, fun i3D Java Apps will get sent around the world like wildfire. Why? Because the Java file format is a trusted, open source, universal format, and because the filesize, if properly produced, can be under a megabyte!
Is i3D Content Production Expensive? i3D Content Production, especially for complicated SmartPhone, Interactive Television and BrandGames, can range from the low six-figures ($100,000) range to one million dollars for a major production. However, we are also able to create affordable i3D content which is also 1000's of times smaller in data footprint (works across Internet 2.0 and Mobile) as well as Interactive, at a five-figure price point. This makes our i3D content production services affordable for our international clients, which include advertising agencies, major international brands, product manufacturers, service organizations, government agencies, new business start-ups, venture capital firms, and even non-profit organizations.
