Congratulations to Bob Avanzato, who is not only a visionary but also a wonderful instructor with a strong dedication to ensuring that students get the best possible value from both instruction and interaction with others! Well done!

Advanced Polling in Immersive Terf

Posted on March 29, 2016

Immersive Terf® includes a polling feature that lets you ask everyone in a room a question.  The simplest way to do that is to select the menu option in the meeting menu: Tally a Question.  This will let you ask a simple Yes or No question.  We just received a question asking us if we can do more complicated polls.  “For example, could we ask a question where the answers are 3,4,5,6 and 7”.  The answer is yes and here is how.

Making Immersive Locations…”Useful”

Posted on February 18, 2015

As creators of an immersive engine, we have the great pleasure of working with many gifted artists – the ones who create offices, classes, meeting spaces, town halls, workshop rooms….the anywhere you need to be enable the business or innovation or education to occur.   We salute these gifted, creative artists who can wield Maya or 3Ds Max, even SketchUp in a mighty ways.  Some of these artists are our staff, some are our partners, and some are our customer’s staffs or consultants.

It is with deep respect that we say….. as talented as you are with your art, kindly take a little advice from we engine creators.  We have 100s of 1000s of users so we see a lot and we create too. Terf®is for enterprise, organizations, governments, universities, by this we mean our users come in to get work done or learn, etc.  Beauty does not trump utility for our customers.   They deserve and want both but the latter, utility, is the most critical.
