A Web protocol dedicated to cross-devices collaboration.
UMI3D is a Web exchange protocol that allows any AR/VR device to access interactive 3D Media locally or remotely.
UMI3D's main objective is to make collaborative 3D media easier to create and to access.
Make the most of device complementarity
Thanks to an interaction-based device abstraction layer, UMI3D allows to take a better advantage of the devices' specificities.
In September 2016, Inetum (Gfi changed its name to Inetum in 2021) and the IGG team from the ICube laboratory at the University of Strasbourg launched the UMI3D project. Initially, their goal was to simplify collaboration between multiple and potentially asymmetric devices in augmented and virtual realities, and enable the design of collaborative applications without prior knowledge of user devices.
