Evans & Sutherland Computer Corp. has reached an agreement with Digital Equipment Corp. to supply its Freedom Series of graphic accelerators for the newest members of Digital's workstation family, the Alpha-Station line. Digital will sell and support the product worldwide.

The announcement signals E&S's successful completion of its strategic transition from a direct supplier to a vendor of high-performance graphics accelerators.Digital joins a coalition of companies offering or planning to offer the Freedom Series from E&S for their high-performance graphics customers.

Jim Oyler, E&S president, said, "We are delighted to have Digital as a member of our Freedom Coalition. Now all the major workstation vendors have one thing in common when it comes to high-performance graphics: the E&S Freedom Series of graphics accelerators," he said.

The first product for the Digital platforms will be a family of high-performance 3D graphics accelerators based on the E&S Freedom Series. The series provides the fastest 3D graphics performance in the industry, as confirmed by results released by the National Computer Graphics Association.

Oyler said E&S has the fastest 3D geometry accelerator by any standards. "This combined with the AlphaStation is exactly the product that E&S and Digital customers have been waiting for," he said.
