Berg, Germany (PressExposure) May 20, 2009 -- With the 18th major release in 15 years the continuous development of the 3D renderer BS Contact can be celebrated. The new release supports 25 new features - among others high-end game functionality such as "Cascading realtime shadows" and "post processing" in all major browsers (IE, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome and Opera) with a rich programming API and tools such as BS Encrypt.
Bitmanagement, a leading technology provider of interactive Web 3D software has announced today that the new release of their 3D viewer product BS Contact 7.2 Web 3D is ready for download at [http://www.bitmanagement.com]
The 3D internet software, which runs embedded in all major browsers implements both the ISO standard definitions X3D and VRML prepared by the Web3D consortium as well as the industry standard Collada delivered by the Khronos consortium.
The fact that both ISO Standards X3D and VRML are issued by the Web3D consortium is emphasized by Bitmanagement with the extended naming of their main product "BS Contact 7.2 Web 3D" and shows at the same time the importance of the most widely used 3D standards. Unlike other attempts to proclaim proprietary technology as 3D web standards recently the customers of Bitmanagement appreciate the long term lifespan of ISO ratified standard definitions for their applications that can run unchanged for decades.

"The 3D content produced in line with existing 3D standards on the web ranges in millions already today. Our web plug-in BS Contact 7.2 Web 3D presents this content with the latest visual tricks known previously only from state of the art computer games on DVD. Such visualization quality can be seen now in your web browser on the internet.", said Peter Schickel, CEO of Bitmanagement and Member of the board of directors of the Web3D consortium in Monterey, USA. Regarding real-time shaders the new version supports both Direct X as well as OpenGL (GLSL) dynamic shader technology. Such techniques are best exhibited in games such as the web browser adventure Game Leelh using already the new features of the release. [http://www.bitmanagement.com/leelh-game.html]
