Business/Technology Editors

MARLBORO, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 25, 2000

Data Translation, Inc. (NASDAQ: DATX) today announced the release of the Imaging Omni CD(TM), a versatile, new software bundle that is included at no charge with all deliveries of Data Translation's PCI frame grabber boards. The Imaging Omni CD provides users with the tools needed to set up a Data Translation frame grabber, to develop imaging applications, and to integrate the frame grabber into an existing application.

The CD includes these special features:

-- 32-bit drivers supporting Windows 98/2000 and NT 4.0

-- Frame Grabber SDK(TM) Software Development Kit

-- "Newly Enhanced" DT-Acquire(TM) Image Acquisition Application

-- Program examples with source code

-- Complete documentation for all DT PCI frame grabbers

Frame Grabber SDK consists of hardware-independent and device-specific dynamic link libraries (DLLs) that enable users to easily implement DT frame grabbers into custom applications. Function types include image acquisition, memory management, frame grabber input and camera control, passthru, and image display and image overlay control. Previously sold separately for $150.00, Data Translation now includes the SDK in the Imaging Omni CD for free.

DT-Acquire is a menu-driven, ready-to-run software application that allows users to acquire, load, and save images using Data Translation's PCI frame grabber. The new version of DT-Acquire enables users to perform single image or continuous passthru acquisitions, load and save camera files, and control all board parameters.

"The powerful software tools-now available for free on the Imaging Omni CD - include everything our customers need to power up quickly and to easily integrate DT frame grabbers into existing or new applications," said John Hotchkiss, Product Marketing Manager at Data Translation.
