Intel introduces 3D graphics standard

Intel has collaborated with Adobe, Boeing and more than 30 other companies to promote the adoption of a universal 3D graphics standard.

The cross-industry group of developers and corporate users of 3D graphics technology has agreed to work with Ecma International, an international standards body, on a Universal 3D Format proposal as an ISO standard.

The purpose of this collaboration is the development of a common 3D interactive standard that can be widely used online and in business as digital audio, video and photos. This would enable companies to make interactive simulations a common training tool, developing interactive guides for various equipment, machinery and vehicles, Intel said.

"This collaboration between different industries marks a significant step towards turning 3D graphics into the next ubiquitous media, the same way the JPG file format brought pictures to our PCs, the internet and even [mobile] phones." said Pat Gelsinger, Intel senior vice president and chief technology officer, in a statement.
