Jon Peddie Associates Announces Its First Web 3D Conference

(August 02, 2001)
Jon Peddie Associates (JPA), a division of Penton Media, Inc. announced the launch of its first Web 3D Conference to be held in Santa Clara, California, October 3-4, 2001, at the Hilton Santa Clara.

The Web 3D Conference is the first in-depth conference to bring industry leaders together to cover topics such as the 3D pipeline, the content bottleneck, consumer demand for 3D, proprietary technologies, open standards, and B2B and consumer applications in two full days of panels.

"The games and film industries have traditionally been the largest markets for 3D graphics," says Samantha Staples, JPA analyst, "but the untapped potential of the Web presents real opportunities for both new and traditional 3D technologies." JPA's recently published industry report, 3D on the Web, forecasts that by 2007 there will be one million active Web sites using 3D graphics.

Co-sponsored by the Web3D Consortium, the Web 3D Conference will feature keynotes by Roger Chandler of Intel Architecture Labs, Kevin Lynch of Macromedia, and Alex St. John of WildTangent. Eight incisive panels will feature participants from the leading Web 3D technology companies in an interactive format designed to foster lively discussions and provide valuable insight into this dynamic, emerging industry. Staples continued, "The Web 3D Conference will provide an invaluable opportunity for 3D technology companies to learn what challenges are being met and where the next opportunities are in this market segment."
