WINDOWS NT SOFTWARE ANNOUNCED FOR DPS PC PAR
For Immediate Release, January 31, 1996
Digital Processing Systems is pleased to confirm that Windows NT
software for the PC-based Personal Animation Recorder is currently
under development and scheduled for delivery in April. Targeted to
ship coincident with the release of Autodesk's 3D Studio MAX, the new
DPS software will also enable PAR owners to take full advantage of
other NT based animation programs including Lightwave 4.0 and
Softimage 3D. With a user interface based on the DPS Perception Video
Recorder, the new PAR NT software will incorporate DPS' exclusive
Virtual File System as well. The DPS VFS provides unparalleled ease of
integration with third party applications by presenting "virtual"
copies of each PAR frame simultaneously in BMP, IFF, PIC, SGI and TGA
The development of Windows NT software reaffirms DPS' commitment to the
thousands of animators already using the PC PAR. Like previous DPS
upgrades, PAR NT software will be available at no charge if downloaded
from the DPS FTP site (ftp.dps-inc.com) or the DPS BBS (416-754-8368).
Customers wishing to receive the NT software by mail can order it from
DPS for a nominal charge of $25.00, which includes diskettes,
documentation and shipping.
Given the widespread and growing support for Windows NT by animation
software vendors, there are no plans for a Windows 95 version of PC
PAR software. Digital Processing Systems will, however, continue to
support the existing DOS application.
