San Jose, CA--March 24, 1997--Applied Graphics Technologies Inc. has been selected to demonstrate the unique capabilities of its Digital Link System at "Intel Platforms for Visual Computing," held today at the San Jose Convention Center (San Jose, CA) as part of the Intel Technology Series.
AGT was selected to participate in the event to showcase the image-intensive functions performed by its software, including the archiving and display of video files. The company also will demonstrate Photo Editor, an image-manipulation component of the Digital Link System which allows users to easily perform complex color balancing and other image optimizations, as well as cropping, rotating, and annotation functions.
The Intel seminar series is designed to keep industry leaders, analysts and members of the press current with advances in technology related to image management. The event also includes presentations by Intel executives, who will share their perspectives of "visual computing" and how the company plans to deliver a new generation of media-rich content and interfaces via Intel hardware.
AGT software developers recently enhanced the Digital Link System's code to maximize its performance using Intel's new MMX technology. Initial tests by AGT have shown a marked improvement in processing speed and image clarity, particularly in the display of video files.
At the event, images from a Sony digital camera also will be imported into Digital Link's Photo Editor software. The images will be digitally captured at the showcase event--with no auxiliary lighting--and downloaded to the AGT system using a PCMCIA card. The digital camera interface demonstrates AGT's applications for digital portrait studios and special events imaging.
The Digital Link System also incorporates a sophisticated database for archiving images, which is used by several AGT customers to manage image collections numbering in the millions.
