Traditional technologies representing 3D information over Internet, such as Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML), encounter numerous bandwidth, hardware and software limitations. VizStream streaming 3D technologies incrementally deliver the 3D data. Users can immediately interact with the 3D model or environment without waiting for it to download. As the user continues to interact, more detail 'streams' to the user's computer. Streaming 3D drastically reduces the bandwidth required to effectively use 3D content. VizStream even works over a 28.8 kbps modem.
