Toronto-based telecommunications technology manufacturer Nortel announced that it is working with America's Army developers Virtual Heroes Inc., who will provide assistance in developing Nortel's web.alive communications platform. Nortel's web.alive is a virtual world application for use within business organizations. web.alive provides enterprises with a browser-based 3D environment in which members of an organization can collaborate, train employees, and interact with customers. Virtual Heroes is on board to enhance the training functionality of web.alive. The developer will also improve the program in areas relating to world simulation. "With its web.alive solution, Nortel is pushing the envelope and creating a truly next-generation immersive application that lets enterprises meet, conduct business and train employees in a more interactive, fun and engaging way," said Virtual Heroes CEO Jerry Heneghan. Heneghan continues: "Nortel's approach facilitates highly interactive 3D collaboration, integrated communications, security and spatial audio through the web via a thin client. Nortel and Virtual Heroes are teaming to provide a richer experience with advanced simulation technologies created specifically with education and training in mind." Nortel previously announced the licensing of Epic Games' Unreal Engine for web.alive, the same graphics engine used in Virtual Heroes' America's Army combat training simulation.
