"IGC continues its leadership position in the viewer market by
providing customers with a full-featured 3D/2D viewing system at a 2D entry-level price", said IGC CEO Gary Heath. "MYRIAD is the best all - around value in the market today and the word is out. Response to our setting the price/value benchmark for top-end viewers has exceeded all expectations. Our customers are knowledgeable engineers who respond to true value and ROI, not artificial price inflation driven by expensive marketing hype. With MYRIAD, significant cost savings are realized in departmental and corporate wide deployments where multi-format support is a requirement. Who can justify a thousand dollars or more for a 3D/2D viewer?"

IGC also announces the immediate availability of beta release of its Unix versions of ModelPress 1.0 3D model publishing software for Pro/E, CATIA, and UG. ModelPress solves the issues associated with sharing and viewing native format CAD models. It also improves network and user response time by addressing the challenge of transferring large filesfor visualization. Model Press uses the native CAD system to process the design files by extracting and compressing (up to 10x) model assembly geometry. The result is a single pre-processed file that transfers faster and views more quickly while preserving the integrity of the native file. Output is optimized for HOOPS-based streamed
viewing in MYRIAD 5.1 or greater. Model Press runs as a separate set of publishing routines on Unix (Solaris, SGI, AIX HPUX) and NT platforms, and can be downloaded at: http ://infograph.com/download
