AGI and CAM Donate EasyCopy Site License to Michigan State University
SAN JOSE, California, November 30, 2000 - AutoGraph International (AGI) and Computer Asset Management Corp. (C.A.M.) today announced the donation of $56,000 in software to Michigan State University, College of Engineering, East Lansing MI.
This joint donation of an EasyCopy and EasyConvert Site License for 250 UNIX workstations also includes membership in AGI's Software Subscription Service, which represents a value of approximately $9,000 per year.
EasyCopy and EasyConvert version 6.1 have been installed on 250 workstations at Michigan State University to provide engineering students with state-of-the-art tools for screen capture, image printing, image file format conversion, and other image communication tasks.
"EasyCopy is an excellent image communication tool for our students" said Robert Chalou, representative of the MSU School of Engineering. "Not only are they immediately and professionally productive but they enter the workforce with proficiency in a widely used software package. We are very pleased that AutoGraph International Inc. and Computer Asset Management Corporation donated licenses to us to aid in the comprehensive training of our engineers."
EasyCopy is widely used in the automotive industry as an attractive capture and print tool for designers. The EasyCopy product family from AGI also penetrates other industries worldwide with more than 160,000 sold licenses.
EasyCapture is an important component of EasyCopy that gives the user the option of screen capture from the GUI, from the command-line, or via a hot key. The user-friendly definition of hot keys gives the ultimate flexibility for capturing screen images from any application running on the workstation. EasyCopy also imports a wide range of common CAD and DTP image file formats. Additional filters can be installed to import virtually any image or graphics file format.
Printing and viewing assure that black/white as well as color image data will receive superior attention. One can remove background colors whenever it is appropriate to combine the sharpest output with saving money on ink or toner. The user can communicate data via paper or transparencies using the printer of choice. The companion product, EasyConvert, lets the user share images with applications demanding a different file format, and also provides a feature for sending images anywhere by e-mail.
AGI is an international company founded in 1989. It produces and delivers systems for image handling from UNIX or NT workstations.
