Tecplot, Inc. Obtains Exclusive Worldwide Distribution Rights for the O-Matrix Analysis Environment

O-Matrix Offers Users More Computing Power, Faster Performance at a Much Lower Price Than Leading Competitor

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - Tecplot, Inc., the developer of Tecplot data visualization and technical plotting solutions, announces that it has partnered with Harmonic Software to become the exclusive worldwide distributor of O-Matrix, an integrated analysis environment that enables scientists and engineers to solve technical analysis and simulation problems faster than with traditional languages such as C++ or FORTRAN.

O-Matrix is used for analyzing data, creating simulations, visualizing results, and building turnkey scientific and engineering computing solutions. O-Matrix users can now read and write Tecplot .PLT files. Users can also directly load data from many formats including Excel, text files, HDF, and WAV files. Future development will provide users with a direct interface between Tecplot and O-Matrix.

Faster and More Compact

O-Matrix outperforms the leading mathematical computing software in 80% of the benchmark tests. When compared against the same competing software, O-Matrix is 59% faster on matrix calculations and 72% faster on common programming tasks. In addition, the software's compact format enables it to start up faster than its competitors and requires only 6 MB of memory.


O-Matrix also offers users extensive math, statistical, and engineering functions for analysis and modeling -- all for one-fourth of the price of the leading mathematical computing software. In addition, O-Matrix users now have direct access to Tecplot Focus and Tecplot 360 visualization software tools as well as the Tecplot support team.

Direct Link to Tecplot Data Visualization

The latest release, O-Matrix 6.2, adds a direct link to Tecplot data visualization software, Tecplot Focus and Tecplot 360. O-Matrix 6.2 includes over 30 Tecplot functions to render graphs, as well as transfer and manipulate data.

"Tecplot, Inc.'s partnership with Harmonic Software supports our long-standing mission to help engineers and scientists discover, analyze and understand information in complex data, then communicate that information to others," says Mike Peery, Tecplot's president.

Pricing and Availability: O-Matrix is available now. Pricing for a single-user license for Windows 2000/XP is $500. O-Matrix development kit is $1,500.
