Designers at both companies write simulation code for Windows NT and the Silicon Graphics IRIX systems. OWill have a marked uptick in business from the synergy of these two companies,O says Stephen Gersuk, MultiGen-Paradigm vice president of visual simulation programs. OWe can put these products together and come up with a real-time modeling package that does modeling and real-time rendering.O The merger enables Paradigm to gain valuable marketing expertise, Gersuk says. OMultiGen has very strong vertical marketing,O he says. OAt we had been much more
