Stockholm, Sweden (September 6, 2002)
Demicron releases WireFusion 3 with enhanced web3D
features and new streaming video capabilities
Demicron releases a new version of WireFusion with
improved interface, new features and advanced add-ons,
such as web3D and streaming video
September 6, 2002 - Today the Swedish software developer
Demicron announced WireFusionTM 3, a new version of
its acclaimed Web graphics tool. Demicron, a leading
developer of easy-to-use, high-quality Java software
solutions, is now shipping WireFusion 3, the newest
version of the company's Web graphics tool. Also released
are two new WireFusion add-ons, WF-3D and WF-Video.
WireFusion is a drag-and-drop visual-programming tool
developed for creating advanced and interactive product
presentations for the Web in small and platform independent
Compared to its forerunner, WireFusion 3 is a completely
new program, with a new user interface and hundreds
of new and powerful features and improvements. As WireFusion
is capable of many different Web graphics techniques,
Demicron has introduced a new concept to the tool: WireFusion
plug-ins (or add-ons), which users can select to add
enhanced functionality to their program.
The WF-3D add-on is an extraordinary web3D solution
with top performance and specifications. Users can create
3D models and animations in their favorite 3D modeling
tools supporting the 3D-format VRML (for example, 3ds
maxTM) and then import them into WireFusion and WF-3D.
Thus, users can easily add advanced interactivity with
no scripting or programming knowledge. A new feature
in WireFusion is the capability to write Java code and
the user to create advanced Web-based product simulations
in 2D, as well as in 3D.
The WF-Video add-on lets users stream MPEG movies into
WireFusion presentations, without a streaming server
or an extra browser plug-in. Video clips can even be
played on 3D models, when combining WF-Video and WF-3D.
- "The new WireFusion version is really a breakthrough
for us and for all our users," says Stefano de
Carolis, Demicron's CEO. "No other tool on the
market today can create advanced product simulations
in both 2D and 3D, including streaming video and sound
and without an extra browser plug-in to download. We
have found that our clients love our plug-in free and
Homepage visitors can view presentations created with
WireFusion in all cross-platform Java 1.1 enabled browsers.
This means that no extra downloads or frequent updates
are needed for viewing WireFusion 2D/3D/Video presentations
on the Internet. The small presentations made with WireFusion
have also been verified to work on handheld computers
such as Compaq iPAQ running the Jeode JVM from Insignia.

add-ons can be downloaded from Demicron's homepage.
