Virtual Worlds - Standard for Systems Virtual Components

This standard is an over-arching standard for virtual world systems. The over-arching standard provides a reference model and covers subsequent standards for virtual environments. This standard establishes terminology for the Virtual World (VW) components and systems. The reference model covers addresses, interfaces and/or communication protocols between and among system components. Components include supporting devices, like servers, reality engines/environments, virtual objects, scripts and avatars. This standard defines processes, conventions and protocols to promote interoperability of avatars and objects between and among virtual world environments and networked resources. This standard is application agnostic but will provide illustrative use cases.
