Press Release: Second Life “gold” solution provider Snowcrash digital joins the SpotOn3D OpenSim grid
Snowcrash Digital is a gold certified Second Life® solution provider, most known as the developers of Second Life’s leading audio solution “Hermes Audio Technology” and the “Hermes Engage” range of educational tools. Since 2006, Snowcrash Digital has developed specialized scripted solutions and “enabling tools,” often merging the 2D-web and 3D environments.
“We believe that due to the current evolution of the market, there will be a growing demand for cross-platform tools,” said Snowcrash Digital marketing director Philippe Pascal. “Many of our customers already spread their activities over several virtual worlds, and we think that by offering them their trusted tools in these other environments as well we offer them a valuable service.”
“We’ve been evaluating several OpenSim worlds, often being invited by the people behind them,” he added. “A key-factor for us in deciding which we’ll join is the protection of intellectual property, both ours and our customers — for which SpotOn3D had a very strong case.”
“Virtual worlds are evolving and constantly stretching the bounds of what technology can do, and OpenSim based worlds are at the forefront of that,” said Snowcrash Digital technical director Jim Evans. “In our opinion, SpotOn3D have the right approach and are backed by a solid infrastructure, making it a great base to spread out of Second Life and to take advantage of the innovations that OpenSim brings. We’re excited to be part of that revolution, and to enable others to join it too.”
More news on the services and products of Snowcrash Digital that will be offered in SpotOn3D® will be announced soon. Keep an eye on Snowcrash Digital’s blog at http://blog.snowcrashdigital.com and on the SpotOn3D company blog.

Powersynch, LLC, the parent company for SpotOn3D began development of their SO3D Grid Systems in November of 2008. With the help of a team of dedicated programmers, web developers, modelers and grid experts they’ve succeeded in creating an exciting new experience that answers many of the complex problems seen in their contemporaries, with a ten year vision for the development of the 3D Web.
SpotOn3D’s secure and business centric focus caters to an augmented reality experience that embraces existing 2D web assets, real world meeting functionality, attracting a diverse pool of users from the business, academic, technology, and artisan communities online.
Short term goals are to provide a stable beta grid platform for early adopter businesses and organizations to use, either as a member of the SpotOn3D grid, or on their own affordable private label grids. The long term goals are to create the infrastructure to enable these professional grade grids to interconnect via the SpotOn3D client, a blend of open source and proprietary software.
