    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.
     "Compaq is dedicated to true, open-systems computing, and we understand
 the reality of today's mixed computing environments.  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.
