ATI Acquires HydraVision Software From Appian

(July 30, 2001)
ATI Technologies Inc. and Appian Graphics Corporation announced that ATI has acquired Appian's HydraVision desktop management software and technology for $2 million.

Under the terms of the agreement, ATI has acquired ownership of HydraVision desktop management software and related technologies, several multi-monitor related patents and the HydraVision trademark. In addition, ATI has hired several Appian Graphics employees to develop future enhancements to HydraVision software.

The companies have also renewed a sales and distribution agreement they originally entered into in November 2000. Under this agreement, Appian Graphics will sell ATI products bundled with HydraVision software into the professional multi-monitor markets, including financial trading floor systems, audio and video editing systems, professional mapping systems and point-of-sale systems.

HydraVision desktop management software provides users with an interface for simplified management of multiple displays. HydraVision software features include window and dialog box control, hot-key shortcuts, independent resolutions and refresh rates, independent application control, and up to nine virtual desktops. HydraVision software has been integrated with ATI's technology-leading RADEON(TM) graphics processor family and will also be a key component of future ATI graphics products.
