IVS 3D Announces Australian Hub to Support Asia- Pacific Region

Portsmouth, NH, October 15, 2008 --(PR.com)-- IVS 3D announced the opening of its second regional office to be directed by Dr. Douglas Bergersen. Located in Sydney, Australia, the new location will serve as a distribution, training and support facility for Fledermaus clients and resellers in the Asia-Pacific region.

Bill McKernan, VP of Sales and Marketing for IVS 3D stated, “Our clients in Asia- Pacific were among some of the earliest adopters of our award-winning Fledermaus suite and we are excited to be able to expand our support to become a 24/7 resource for them. We have been anticipating this step with Dr. Bergersen because he not only understands the capabilities of the entire Fledermaus suite, he also has the experience in the ocean industry that will enable him to anticipate our client’s needs and understand their goals. His expertise is exactly what our clients and resellers in the Pacific region are looking for. We look forward to continued growth in this region due to this expansion.”

Dr. Bergersen graduated from the University of Hawaii with a MSc. and Ph.D in Marine Geology and Geophysics, and then migrated to Australia where he has worked in the offshore industry since 1995.

Of the new partnership with IVS, he stated, “My mission for the past 10 plus years has been to introduce innovative solutions to the Austral-Asia market. The powerful data visualization, analysis, and processing capabilities offered by Fledermaus perfectly compliment the geophysical skills and knowledge base of marine operations and software the Australia-based staff have obtained from participating and managing offshore surveys for the past 20 years. This blend of practical experience with immersive visualization will be an invaluable resource to clients and resellers of the Fledermaus software suite.”

Interactive Visualization Systems' (IVS3D) Fledermaus software suite provides users with a powerful set of interactive 3D visualization tools for data preparation, analysis and presentation. Fledermaus allows users near real-time, interactive 3D display of very large complex scenes at their full resolution. Users rapidly gain insight and extract more information from their combined data (data sets such as multi-beam, LIDAR, magnetic and gravity, in fact any surface data that has an x, y, z, variables format).
