NUMBER NINE BUNDLES E-COLOR SOFTWARE WITH SR9 ACCELERATORS.

E-Color, Inc. has announced that Number Nine Visual Technology is including E-Color's Colorific(R) and 3Deep(R) software in worldwide shipments of their SR9 Graphics Accelerators. The SR9 is powered by S3's Savage 4 chip which delivers professional power with the hard-core ambition of a gaming board, providing Number Nine's customers with the optimal solution for business applications and games.

The E-Color bundle suite, providing enhanced display capabilities, is unparalleled in its effectiveness and ease of use. Colorific's quick set-and-forget tuning sequence optimizes monitor color accuracy across all peripheral devices (cameras, scanners and printers) while delivering True Internet Color(R) when shopping or viewing images online. 3Deep ensures gamers receive the highest-quality special effects by providing accurate lighting and shading in today's hottest PC game titles.

Colorific color matching software is the world's leading utility for helping non-technical PC users get the best color results from their PC's and imaging peripherals. Colorific provides screen-to-printer color matching as well as one-click preset settings that optimize a user's display for viewing DVD movies, digital photography, and graphics. Colorific also provides True Internet Color(R) which enhances color accuracy for electronic commerce. This technology ensures that the end-user's monitor simulates the color characteristics of the authoring monitor used to create and approve the Web page.

3Deep is the first solution for correcting the common complaint that 3D games and applications are too dark or washed out when viewed on a user's PC. This correction, called "per channel gamma correction" enables Microsoft(R) DirectX and 3Dfx Glide(R) based games and 3D applications to show their imagery "as the Creator intended(TM)". 3Deep eliminates the need to tweak with contrast and brightness knobs.

Among recent PC titles taking advantage of the 3Deep technology are Microsoft's Motocross Madness II, Infogrames North America's Slave Zero, as well as Gabriel Knight III and Homeworld from Sierra Studios'.

New features of E-Color's software include the following: flat panel display calibration, multi-monitor support, an updated, even simpler setup sequence, optimization of Microsoft Office 2000(R), and True Internet Color. The new Microsoft Office(R) pre-set allows color to be optimized for the PowerPoint(R) presentation graphics program, Microsoft Word(R), and all other members of the Microsoft Office 2000(TM) suite.
