Enterprise virtual worlds vendor ProtonMedia promises Mac client

Chris Ward

ProtonMedia says that increasing use of Macs in businesses means it's now developing a Mac version of its respected virtual worlds software ProtoSphere, a virtual collaboration environment.

Although the Windows version of its software is built on Microsoft technology, the company says its architecture means it can fairly easily port it over to the Mac. "When we looked into it, we found ProtoSphere was architected in such a way that it was entirely possible to produce a Mac version. This is not unlike how Microsoft has a version of Office for Windows, but also has a version of Office for the Mac. If you build your apps right from the get-go, portability is possible."

ProtonMedia has received many requests from users for a Mac version of ProtoSphere, and the company says it's been seeing more Macs in the enterprise sector.
