Concurrent Offers MultiGen-Paradigm's Vega Prime for Visual Servers

12/9/2004 - Concurrent Computer Corporation (NASDAQ: CCUR), Integrated Solutions Division, a leading provider of integrated computer solutions for mission-critical applications, announced the availability of MultiGen-Paradigm® Vega Prime software on its family of high-performance, multi-channel visual servers. By offering MultiGen-Paradigm’s Vega Prime application development environment on Concurrent ImaGen Linux®-based servers, customers have access to truly interactive, virtual reality landscape and aerial simulations.

MultiGen-Paradigm Vega Prime on the ImaGen Platform
Combined with Concurrent’s ImaGen, the ideal imaging platform for today's simulation and modeling applications, MultiGen-Paradigm’s Vega Prime offers an established software environment for the deployment of real-time visual simulation, sensor and general visualization applications. With its powerful fusion of advanced functionality and ease of use, the Vega Prime commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) tool delivers the infrastructure needed to rapidly develop and deploy accurate, real-time 3D visual simulation applications, including civil and military simulation, mission planning, homeland security, scientific and medical visualization, architectural design, energy exploration and entertainment.

ImaGen Benefits
Concurrent’s ImaGen platform features the latest, industry-standard components from leading graphics suppliers, ensuring that application developers will have access to the best possible COTS image generation (IG) solutions. ImaGen servers feature multiple Intel® XeonTM or AMD Opteron processors and a range of tower or rackmount enclosures. ImaGen can be configured with a choice of powerful dual-monitor-capable graphics controllers such as those offered by NVIDIA, ATI and 3DLabs. Loaded with popular 3D visualization software like MultiGen-Paradigm’s Vega Prime, DiSTI’s GL StudioTM, and OpenGL, ImaGen is the most flexible high-performance Linux-based graphics platform available today.

ImaGen servers are powered by Concurrent's RedHawkTM Linux® real-time operating system. RedHawk Linux is also featured on Concurrent iHawkTM multiprocessors, the industry’s leading Linux environment for deterministic, real-time applications. RedHawk is compatible with the popular Red Hat® Linux distribution.

State-of-the-Art Software
Concurrent announced its ImaGen family of Linux-based servers earlier this year. The addition of Vega Prime on ImaGen further strengthens the company’s exceptional, high-end imaging offerings. This advanced real-time 3D solution enables the simulation of objects (i.e. planes, automobiles, people) to move freely without constraint within the scene. Whether the environment is a flight simulator or a city flythrough, the experience is user-defined at the moment of engagement, making it a truly interactive tool that meets the stringent requirements of rapid 3D application development and deployment.

“MultiGen-Paradigm is a recognized leader of real-time 3D solutions, and Vega Prime software offered on the Concurrent ImaGen platform gives our customers the power and flexibility they need for rapid design and prototyping of simulation applications,” said Ken Jackson, vice president of Concurrent Special Systems. “We are pleased to continuously expand and provide sophisticated, integrated solutions to our customers in the simulation and training industries.”

“MultiGen-Paradigm’s Vega Prime is a tremendous tool for satisfying today’s increasingly complex, real-time applications needed for the simulation industry,” said Sandeep Divekar, president of MultiGen-Paradigm, Inc. “Collaborating with a leader like Concurrent enables us to deliver this progressive simulation solution to our customers.”

Concurrent is showcasing this technology at this year’s I/ITSEC show in Orlando, Dec. 6-9, booth #2243.
