Trinigy and Firelight Partner to Bundle Award-Winning FMOD Audio Suite into Vision Engine 8

Eningen, Germany– Nov 30, 2010–  Trinigy , an industry leading 3D game engine provider with over 150 licensees and offices in Germany and Austin, TX, today announced a strategic partnership with Firelight Technologies, makers of the award-winning FMOD audio toolset. Under the agreement, Trinigy and Firelight will enhance the existing integration between Trinigy’s Vision Engine and Firelight’s FMOD Ex suite of cross-platform digital audio tools by giving developers access to all of FMOD’s features directly in the Vision Engine SDK. Moreover, FMOD will be included free-of-charge to Vision Engine licensees.

Now in its eighth iteration, Trinigy’s Vision Engine is a mature, versatile and proven game engine known for its flexibility, its cross-platform performance and the freedom it gives developers in the creation of their games. In keeping with this policy of flexibility, the engine will continue to support other third-party audio solutions while delivering the full-featured FMOD Ex suite, the flagship solution in Firelight’s renowned audio middleware line, to Vision Engine licensees without added cost. The companies have also agreed on joint developer support activities in the agreement, so that Vision Engine customers will benefit from Trinigy’s premiere support for FMOD support issues.

“We have successfully worked with the Firelight team for a few years now and many of our customers are utilizing and praising their technology,” said Felix Roeken, general manager at Trinigy.“FMOD not only provides developers with a scalable solution; it supports more platforms than any competing product on the market, including Windows, Linux, iOS and every major video game console, making it the ideal audio solution for our diverse customer base.”

“Partnering with Trinigy to make FMOD Ex the lead audio toolset in Vision Engine 8 was a natural move,” said Brett Paterson, CEO at Firelight Technologies.“FMOD is fast becoming the de facto audio middleware for game developers. At the same time, Trinigy continues to drive the adoption of its powerful game engine. The new bundle is a win-win for both of our companies, as it will further increase access to our solution while enhancing the cross-platform audio options for Vision Engine customers."

Trinigy and Firelight will continue to work on the integration in the coming months. Interested developers can take advantage of the bundled offer immediately. For more information, visit  www.trinigy.net or contact  sales@trinigy.net .
