Smith Micro's Consumer Group Launches Aquazone 2: Open Water

Jan 08, 2007
Aquazone® 2: Open Water Edition Brings the World's Oceans Directly to the PC

ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), Consumer Group today released the latest edition of its popular Aquazone screensaver software - Aquazone® 2: Open Water. The much-anticipated, newly designed software offers the latest life-like 3D technology by bringing over thirty-nine unique species of sea life and thirteen photorealistic and customizable classic tanks to the PC.

While earlier versions of Aquazone simulate a beautiful aquarium environment with various "tanks", Open Water is immersed with a full 360° panning, greater depth of field and extreme close-ups. The Open Water experience allows users to watch, follow, and feed fish in a natural setting as either a stand alone application or screen saver. Designed for people of all ages, the Open Water edition lets users stock their own virtual ocean with whales, sharks, dolphins, sea turtles and more.

"Aquazone Open Water is perfect for home or the office," said David Polzine, Product Manager, Smith Micro Software, Inc. "It creates the ocean setting right on your desktop and allows the user to observe three dimensional landscapes and marine life in amazing quality." Aquazone Open Water has perfectly mastered the experience of swimming alongside the world's amazing underwater creatures without getting wet... or sea sick."
