"Imagos Productions, Inc. and the Global Information Group USA (GIG) announced today their commitment to develop LINUX-based CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) production sites in the United States, the Netherlands and Brazil. The first site is to be installed in the Los Angeles studios of Imagos, combining their extensive experience in video and special effects production with GIG's powerful and affordable 3D graphics system for Linux."

"According to Sergio Mello, CEO of Imagos Productions, Inc., "Imagos' long term strategy recognizes LINUX as the future dominant operating system and our commitment to the highest graphics quality identifies GIG/LINUX as the best solution available. For the same price as one UNIX based 3D package, we can get ten GIG/LINUX workstations, resources which will support our worldwide operations plan."
