X3D Expands to Support Medical and Volume Visualization

Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2012

The EXtensible 3D Graphics standard X3D continues to evolve include more capabilities and improve the clarity and consistency of its specifications. The third upgrade to X3D (V3.3) release expands X3D capability to include volume visualization, user-selectable units and internal technical changes, and it is in final draft ballot at ISO with an expected release by summer 2013. The publicly released V3.3 specification documents are available at This work advances X3D as the leading royalty-free open standard and run-time architecture to represent and communicate 3D scenes and objects using XML.

The X3D V3.3 standard includes significant new functionality for cross-platform, reproducible interactive 3D presentations of anatomic volumetric data (e.g. CT, MRI, PET scan, and ultrasound), annotations, CAD models as well as the integration of semantic knowledge-bases (i.e. medical ontologies such as SNOMED CT). As a Web standard, these rendered displays can be distributed and shared through secure services and applied to other domains such as non-invasive sensing and geophysics. The Web3D Consortium Medical Working Group authored the specification and has successfully demonstrated several applications with international collaborators including informed consent, anatomic education, and surgical training.

The new support for expressive volume rendering styles and annotations in X3D V3.3 is a milestone for international interoperability within and across the healthcare enterprise. As a web-aware platform for reproducible medical presentations, such an open-standard is an integral tool in the effort to lower costs and improve quality of care. emphasized Michael Aratow, MD, FACEP and Co-Chair of the Medical Working Group. The functionality for the interchange of volumetric, polygonal and textual visualizations is collected into a X3D node set specified as the Medical Interchange Profile, allowing for software development utilizing only a small, focused subset of the entire X3D specification relevant to clinical care.

Another significant change is the addition of user-definable units through the creation of the new UNIT statement. The user can select the units of choice from Angstroms to light-years, with similar choices for angle, force, and mass. X3D will handle all of the conversions from other units (e.g., speed) and other models dependent on these base units. This powerful new feature allows model builders to construct their model in the unit most appropriate for their work.

In addition, significant work has taken place to improve the overall design consistency of the entire X3D standard. This includes making the Geospatial Component more compatible with the Navigation Component, as well as ensuring that field inheritance is now fully consistent. Most notably, this all been achieved with minimal or no effect on backwards compatibility.

About the Web3D Consortium: The Web3D Consortium is a member-funded industry consortium involved in many technical initiatives across the 4D value chain(3D objects and Behaviors). and is committed to the creation and deployment of open ISO, royalty-free standard X3D, that enable the communication of real-time 3D across applications, networks, and XML web services. The Consortium works closely with the International Organization for Standarization (ISO), Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG) and has active projects with Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine (DICOM),), KHRONOS and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standardization bodies to maximize market opportunities for its membership.

Mickey Mouse Club Alum Dale Godboldo Launches Global Initiative To Support Youth In Arts And Entertainment

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 07, 2012

Dale Godboldo Enterprises, Inc. (DGE) announced today a broad-based initiative to develop platforms for young talent to excel in the arts, by partnering with financial institutions, production studios, educational institutions, and not for profit organizations to produce globally distributed content that, much like the Mickey Mouse Club, will serve as breeding grounds for young talent while providing scholarships and mentoring programs dedicated to advancing the skills of young creators.

Dale Godboldo was a cast member on the 90′s Mickey Mouse Club alongside Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, Keri Russell, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, JC Chasez and NBC’s “The Voice” finalist Tony Lucca. Over a 20 year period, Godboldo appeared as an actor in over 130 episodes of television and films, and in business managed millions in project financing, media design and distribution contracts.

“Our experience on the Club was unique in that our creativity was nurtured on a daily basis and backed by a million dollar production budget per week,” says Godboldo, “That kind of structure, support and training is a missing link when trying to understand the later successes of so many from that show, and why I am passionate about giving young and dynamic artists similar opportunities.”

Unique to DGE’s production plans is its commitment to preparing young artists for long-term careers in the entertainment industry, both in front of and behind the camera. DGE’s strategies include building infrastructures for training and project financing, as well as providing guidance in managing success.

DGE will focus on creating both mainstream and art-house projects traversing music, film, television and new media. Projects and strategic alliances will be announced throughout the remainder of the year.

Dale Godboldo Enterprises, Inc. is a diversified holdings company with ownership interests in real estate, media and technology. Companies co-owned and managed include Wylie Studios, LLC, Global Renaissance Entertainment Group, Inc. and Brigade in downtown Los Angeles. Strategic alliances include a distribution deal through Mahvrick Networks with Omniverse One World Television, Code Black Entertainment/Lionsgate, and the principals of Cherokee Investment Partners, a $ 2B investment fund.
