This paper introduces the Verse platform for networked multiuser 3D graphics applications. The client/server-oriented use of the network architecture is described; as is the highly heterogeneous client concept. The data storage model is introduced; as are several features of the object representation. A single-primitive approach to high-quality graphics based on a hybrid of Catmull-Clark and Loop subdivision surfaces is described; together with a high-level material description system.
