Shaping the Metaverse: Nemetschek Group is a Founding Member of the Metaverse Standards Forum

Munich / Friedrichsdorf, Germany, July 12, 2022 – The Nemetschek Group, represented by its brand Maxon, a leading developer of professional 3D software solutions, is one of the founding members of the Metaverse Standards Forum. The newly established governing body aims to foster alignment on requirements and priorities for metaverse interoperability standards. Along with Adobe, Epic Games, Meta, Microsoft, and NVIDIA, amongst additional founding members, Maxon aims to help build an open and inclusive metaverse that enables the deployment of diverse technologies, including interactive 3D graphics, augmented and virtual reality, and more.

The Metaverse Standards Forum brings together companies and standards organizations to accelerate the development and deployment of metaverse interoperability standards through pragmatic, action-based projects.

“Ultimately the success of the Metaverse is dependent on specifying universal interoperability standards. By doing this, we’re establishing a unified workspace where users can explore new vehicles for content creation while discovering new ways to be creative,” said David McGavran, CEO of Maxon. “The new Metaverse Standards Forum was established for companies like ours who build tools and solutions for content creators who want to remain on the cutting edge. As a result, we have long embraced essential software that provides our customers with the tools they need to engage with the Metaverse.”

“The potential of the metaverse is huge – it can revolutionize the way we live, work and communicate. To create a true experience for everyone, it needs to be built on open standards”, says Yves Padrines, CEO of the Nemetschek Group. “Our long-standing commitment to a customer-centric, open, collaborative and inclusive ideology perfectly positions us to help build the foundations for a similarly accessible and user-focused Metaverse”, he adds.

The high-quality tools under the Maxon product umbrella, including Cinema 4D, Redshift, and the recently acquired ZBrush, have been established as the industry standard for motion graphics, VFX, 3D sculpting and all types of visualization for over 20 years. Maxon One users are provided with a smooth workflow for all of their creative projects and already allow customers to participate in the Metaverse as it currently exists, as well as what it will eventually become.
