ADVANCED VISUAL SYSTEMS ACQUIRES JAGUAR SOFTWARE, A PROVIDER OF ADVANCED VISUALIZATION TECHNOLOGY FOR PCS;

 WALTHAM, Mass., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Visual Systems Inc., a leading developer of visual computing software for technical professionals and software developers, announced the acquisition of Jaguar Software, a provider of leading-edge visualization technology for PC Windows and Windows/NT environments. The acquisition accelerates Advanced Visual System's goal of providing a seamless environment for both visual application development and visualization across UNIX workstation and Intel/Microsoft PC platforms.
 According to George Brandt, president and CEO, Advanced Visual Systems, "Jaguar's products and expertise in high-performance visualization for the Windows and NT environments are an ideal complement to our company's leadership in visual computing for UNIX systems. Now that Intel's Pentium chip and Microsoft's Windows environment make PCs fully capable of handling advanced interactive visual applications, we can extend the AVS development framework and visualization technology across almost all desktop systems."
 The Jaguar customer base is now fully served by AVS, and all of Jaguar's employees have become employees of Advanced Visual Systems. Business terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
 Jaguar Software (Winchester, Mass.) is the developer of VoxelBox(tm), a high-performance, interactive volume renderer used to generate high-quality pictures of three-dimensional datasets. It takes advantage of the dramatic leaps in PC performance to provide low-cost, desktop access to advanced visualization techniques previously available only on high-end workstations. VoxelBox provides the highest-quality volume rendering commercially available in the industry today. Advanced Visual Systems will continue to develop and market VoxelBox, with version 2.0 planned for release later this summer. The company will also integrate the VoxelBox rendering technology into its other products on UNIX platforms.
 Volume rendering is used by geoscientists, medical researchers, physicists, engineers and others to generate accurate and detailed visual representations of large datasets such as a 3D MRI scan of human head or a 3D seismic survey of subsurface rock structures. Interactive 3D visualization enhances our understanding of complex problems and leads to better solutions, whether it be a safer therapy for a patient or a more successful oil extraction strategy. Advanced Visual Systems' products are also used for application development in areas such as engineering analysis, financial modeling, environmental studies and oil and gas exploration and production.
 Advanced Visual Systems Inc., headquartered in Waltham, Mass., is a leader in the development and delivery of visualization software products for scientific, engineering and business professionals and software developers. The current product line includes VoxelBox, the Application Visualization System (AVS(tm)), and SunVision(tm). The company's flagship product, AVS, first released in 1988, has emerged as the industry standard, platform-independent visualization application software and development environment, with thousands of users worldwide. Advanced Visual Systems now offers advanced visualization solutions on more than 20 platforms from supercomputers to PCs. Easily tailored and applicable to a wide range of applications, AVS software is designed to accept data and create a visual display of the information using a variety of advanced visualization techniques. AVS also provides a uniquely productive application building environment for visual computing applications.
