CGSD chooses Audition, by CG2
as their real-time model viewer

Huntsville, AL, August 9, 1999: Computer Graphics Systems Development (CGSD) Corporation announced today that they have chosen Audition, CG2's real-time model viewer, as their 3D viewer for their latest product. Starting with its debut at SIGGRAPH, Computer Graphics Systems Development (CGSD) Corporation's Building Library, a set of 100 three-dimensional models of residences, industrial and public buildings, water towers, electrical transmission towers, and landscaping elements, will be delivered on a CD including Audition. Audition will be used to view each building model, which is designed for use in interactive 3D graphics applications such as urban planning and visualization, flight simulation, and entertainment systems.

Audition supports the real-time viewing and manipulation of all levels-of-detail models supplied with the Building Library, typically each model ranges from about 20 to up to 400 polygons. Audition is easy to use, allowing each building model to be rotated and viewed from any angle with just simple clicks of the mouse. "Auditions direct support of OpenFlight combined with its ease of use and real-time response made it the obvious choice (3D Viewer) to include on our CD", said Roy Latham, President of CGSD Corporation.

Visit CGSD Corporation's booth, Number 903, at SIGGRAPH to see Audition and the newly released Building Library.
