Interactive distributed applications with a shared virtual environment, also known as distributed virtual reality (DVR) systems, have been examined in this paper. DVR systems are efficiently used in applications for education, simulation, training, and entertainment purposes. They impose a challenge for a high level of real-time interaction between users in an efficient way in terms of network usage. The aim of this paper is the development of a special multi-agent software architecture for distributed virtual reality systems. Main components of a multi-agent system as well as communication mechanisms between the agents have been suggested and evaluated. On the base of multi-agent systems, consistent visualization of objects as well as their interactions within the system has been achieved.
