SAUSALITO, Calif., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Equilibrium today announced their participation in Compaq Computer Corporation's Interoperability Initiative to help customers integrate the Windows NT-based workstations into existing UNIX and Macintosh environments. Equilibrium's DeBabelizer Pro, the industry standard for automatically preparing graphics, animations and video for optimal digital delivery, will help users to access, share and port graphics files as they transition to the Windows NT platform. "Equilibrium is proud to be a part of Compaq's interoperability initiative. The alliance of Equilibrium's automated media integration solution -- DeBabelizer Pro, and Compaq's dedication to open-systems computing, is a powerful and exciting combination," said Sean Barger, Chairman & Founder, Equilibrium. Using DeBabelizer Pro, designers can focus on their artwork, rather than on their hardware platform, because Equilibrium's software automatically imports, processes, optimizes and converts graphic files into virtually any file format.

That's why we've formed alliances with leading interoperability application vendors such as Equilibrium to enable the new Compaq Professional Workstation 5100, as well as the rest of the Workstation product line, to perform in heterogeneous environments," said Les Crudele, Vice President and General Manager, Workstation Division, Compaq Computer Corporation.
