Advanced Visual Systems Inc. provides industry-leading, interactive data visualization software and solutions to help businesses, scientific, and engineering users gain critical insight from all types of data. The Company’s complete line of software products speed decision-making by bringing information to life using the latest in graphics and interactive technologies. Founded in 1991, Advanced Visual Systems, Inc. has their headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts.
The Company’s mission is to help their customers extract the full value from their data and make the best possible decision in the least amount of time. They are the developer and primary distributor of several software products that find use in multiple sectors of the business and technical industries to present diverse forms of data in the form of easily understandable graphic representations.
These “data visualizations” are distinguished from common computer graphics through a high performance data processing and rendering process. Data visualization enables computer users to reach better and faster decisions by expressing the underlying information in such a way that patterns and trends are more effectively observed than through conventional forms of analysis.
Advanced Visual Systems, Inc.’s products and services include OpenViz. This is a powerful data visualization toolkit designed to provide highly interactive visual analysis to Web or desktop applications in a broad spectrum of industries. OpenViz is a standards-based development system that provides virtually unlimited possibilities for the conversion of all types of data information into easy-to-understand visualizations.
The Company also offers AVS/Express. This is a software development system designed for programmers creating sophisticated data visualization-enabled applications. It is also for individual end-users that wish to independently visualize and explore complex scientific, engineering, medical, manufacturing, and other types of data. AVS/Express enables rapid, object-oriented development of rich and highly interactive scientific and technical data visualizations.
Toolmaster is another of the Company’s offerings. Toolmaster is a comprehensive graphics library used to create charts and graphs and presentation-quality hardcopy output on major legacy and contemporary platforms.
In addition, Advanced Visual Systems, Inc. offers Gsharp, a Windows and Unix-based software product. It generates technical charts and graphs, enabling analysts, researchers, and other computer users to choose from a large gallery of graphics to create powerful data visualizations with minimal technical skills.
Today, Advanced Visual Systems announced that they will soon debut ultra-high performance editions of their AVS/Express software. They are collaborating with Microsoft to leverage the Windows HPC Server platform and significantly improve data visualization processing, application performance, and ease of configuration using Microsoft’s provisioning interfaces. Initial test results have shown that computationally sophisticated processes running on AVS/Express can now be run on the Windows HPC Server platform.
