Digimation Releases The Archive; the World's Largest Collection of 3D Models

Significant New Pricing Makes It Affordable for Creative Artists, Studio Owners, and Freelancers

NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2008) - Digimation, a leading provider of 3D content and related solutions to the entertainment and defense industries, today announced the immediate availability of The Archive™; the world's largest single collection of high-quality 3D models. The Archive is available at significant new price points making it accessible to companies and individuals alike.

"The Archive represents one of the best values in computer graphics," said David Avgikos, president of Digimation. "Modeling has always been one of the most time-consuming elements of 3D production. The Archive saves time and money by eliminating a large part of that process, and the new pricing ensures that The Archive pays for itself -- sometimes in its very first use."

The Archive contains a broad assortment of 3D models including: almost one thousand digitized vehicles, high-resolution anatomy (including skeletal data from the Visible Human Project), famous landmarks, accurate military models, and more. In total, The Archive represents more than one million man-hours of development and six million dollars in value.

"The assets we are licensing from Digimation allow us to have high quality art up and running quickly and efficiently," says Shayne Herrera, art development director for Cryptic Studios, the leading independent developer of massively multiplayer online games. "The quality of each asset is incredible; each model is detailed and beautifully constructed. Deciding to use Digimation products is the one of the easiest decisions I have made as an Art Director."

Formerly priced at $49,995, The Archive is now available for $4,995 USD. Models are delivered in industry standard OBJ format compatible with virtually all 3D applications and production pipelines.

"When we begin a project, whether it be for a feature film or a game cinematic, the first step we take is to browse through the Digimation Archive," said Sean Cushing, executive producer at Pixel Liberation Front, a leading visual effects company. "In almost every case, it gives us an incredible advantage because without fail The Archive contains the models that we need to get started. The Digimation Archive is one of the best investments we have made as a company."

The Archive comes in two versions; the Platinum Edition, which contains 10,054 models and sells for $2,995 (USMSRP), and the Titanium Edition, which contains 16,504 models and sells for $4,995 (USMSRP).
