    Course Description

    X3D-PEX (PEX) is an emerging multi-vendor supported protocol extension to the X Window System for the rendering of PHIGS and PHIGS-PLUS 3D graphics within Windows in a distributed environment. PEX also allows developers to take advantage of advanced graphics by using a standard application programming interface such as PHIGS. This course covers the evolution and architecture of PEX, explores the impact PEX use might have on application environments, and investigates important considerations for application and graphics-system implementers.
