The features offered on the Azivia virtual world platform exceed anything available in any other virtual world or 3D environment. In addition since Designing Digitally, Inc. does this type of development as the focus of the company you can relax and rest assured that the 3D virtual world developed will be perfect in its detail. It will be designed to meet your unique needs and will be fully compatible with your browser, firewall, and operating system.
Knowing about the various features that Azivia has will help you in customizing your 3D virtual world, training simulation or serious game for full immersion of the user. The following are all features offered with the Azivia virtual world platform, all uniquely tailored to your project specifications.
One of the biggest drawbacks to many 3D virtual world environments is the limited selection of high quality avatars. This is definitely not the case with Azivia. The focus is on lifelike, diverse avatars that can be developed with the clothing, accessories and appearances you need. These avatars have a wide range of movement and animations including :
- raising hands
- running and walking
Social Network Integration
While the Azivia system is designed to be browser based it is also compatible with many social networking sites. This allows scores and results of simulations and serious games as well as tests or other objectives to be posted to other sites by the system. Azivia can be deployed on Facebook and will also soon be compatible with use on iPhones and Androids for immediate access to information.
As mentioned earlier, there are options within the system to have Azivia installed behind your firewall for maximum security and access to the 3D virtual world. In addition Digitally Designing, Inc. provides hosting on dedicated servers for all your 3D virtual world platform needs. With this option the 3D environment can be accessed by thousands of users on the system concurrently, providing incredible training, educational and business opportunities all from the comfort of the user's computer.
With the Azivia 3D virtual world environment all users are able to communicate directly with each other. VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol allows for real time high quality voice conversations. Text chat is also an option and one that can allow systems managers to access detailed text chat logs for evaluation and scoring purposes. The virtual meeting event system is also available and is a simple, effective and efficient way to keep people within an organization aware of virtual events that are occurring in the 3D environment.
Media Integration and Collaboration
Incorporating existing training videos into the Azivia virtual world or creating videos in conjunction with 3D training or simulations is just one type of media integration possible. A whiteboard system provides information as well as communication and collaboration options for systems users and administrators.
Users in the Azivia 3D virtual world have options for immediate changes to the virtual world. Changing from text chat to voice chat is simple, making communication easy within the virtual world. Users can also move from one virtual space to another, known as teleporting, by clicking on the space desired. Cameras allow a change in view as well as allow the user to switch between a first or third person view of the environment. The interface also allows instant changes to your appearance and profile within the virtual world.
All interfaces within the Azivia 3D virtual world platform are fully customized with your logo and colors. This customization is done to fit your needs by adding or removing components of the interface to meet your project requirements.
As the highlight of Azivia, the 3D custom features really do set this virtual world platform apart from the others. The features that can be fully customized include :
- 3D content development
- 3D animations based on the specifics required
- 3D simulations that are real world based and highly immersive
- LMS integration using SCORM 2004 and AICC programming
- Client training which can be either of both web based as well as traditional styles of training
Custom Database Features
Businesses, companies, agencies and educational facilities can connect existing databases including MYSQL, Oracle and MSSQL to the Azivia virtual world platform. Exporting of current databases to provide a stable backup is a feature that is important for most trainers and managers. In addition web based interfaces can be integrated to constantly update database information as users participate in the 3D virtual world.
Every Azivia customized 3D virtual world offers a variety of administrative and management features. These allow for tracking within the training, simulation or serious games as well as options for managing users through adding, editing and deleting options. User authentication through the system is an important security and administrative feature as is a dynamic virtual world layout control. This is also an administrative feature that allows managers to view and download detailed chat logs and user analytics.
Custom interactions through the 3D virtual world allow the use of webcam facial motion capture as well as a user poll system. This information can be used in custom simulation and serious game development or in tweaking the simulations based on user data.
