AccelGraphics Inc. engineers in San Jose, Calif., needed graphics for their Accel-ECLIPSE 3D graphics subsystem.

They chose REALimage the 3DPro/2mp graphics chipset, co-developed by Evans & Sutherland Computer Corp. (E&S) in Salt Lake City, and Mitsubishi Electronics America of Cypress, Calif.

The 3DPro chipset combines the E&S REALimage rendering processor with Mitsubishi`s graphics memory technologies. The 3DPro chipset offers antialiasing, Gouraud shading, fog, and transparency.

The chipset enables users such as AccelGraphics to build graphics subsystems for simulation, visualization, animation, and content-creation capabilities at the desktop.

The REALimage technology has two components: the REALimage chip technology that provides 2-D and 3-D graphics with acceleration of OpenGL, and its support, Velocity Software. - J.M.
