Pliable Display Technology by IDELIX to be integrated into Paragon's ELT Series Software.

IDELIX Software Inc. and Paragon Imaging announced a partnership agreement that will see IDELIX's award-winning Pliable Display Technology (PDT) integrated into Paragon's industry leading ELT(R) (Electronic Light Table) Series software.

PDT will be integrated into the entire ELT Series of software, a family of products that includes ELT 5500 and ELT 5500 Pro. Developed with guidance from the U.S. Intelligence Community, ELT/5500 Pro includes the most advanced functionality required by U.S. Intelligence Analysts. The integration of PDT is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2004.

"Accuracy and efficiency is vital to the decision-making process of our customers," commented Jack Connors, Vice President of Sales for Paragon Imaging. "PDT's detail-in-context functionality provides complete situational awareness by enabling our customers to see the detail they need within the full context of the arena."

"We have received a great deal of interest in PDT from both image analysts and geospatial analysts within the Defense and Intelligence community," stated Bijan Sanii, President and CEO of IDELIX Software Inc. "The strength of Paragon's products in this market provides IDELIX with a well-respected vehicle in which to deliver the full value of PDT functionality."

Paragon Imaging's ELT Series software is the most widely used commercial image processing software among U.S. intelligence and related government analysts. With ELT Series software, users can easily view and exploit digital images, link associated information with images, and share their analysis with decision makers and other imagery users.

Pliable Display Technology (PDT) by IDELIX is an award-winning visualization interface that improves situational awareness through "detail-in-context" data exploitation and mark-up. The integration of the PDT Software Development Kit into the ELT Series will offer Paragon's customers significant accuracy and efficiency gains when viewing, analyzing, and interacting with digital images. PDT functionality will enhance and extend the existing set of ELT tools used for precise inspection and adjustment. Case study results from previous integrations of PDT have shown that Paragon customers could potentially achieve plus 20% efficiency gains using PDT in their daily workflow.

IDELIX and Paragon are also team members of the Kodak consortium for NIMA's Softcopy Search Program. The objective of this program is to provide imagery intelligence producers throughout the Department of Defense and other U.S. government agencies with the capability to conduct the search of intelligence and commercial softcopy imagery effectively and efficiently. If deployed, the solution would revolutionize imagery and mapping operations.
