DevWare Video & Atomic Toaster Announce Merger


DevWare, Inc., the California based direct marketer and distributor of
software and videotapes for the Amiga, and the Atomic Toaster, the Salt Lake
City, Utah-based Video Toaster Systems dealer, seminar instructor, software
developer and video producer, have announced they will be joining forces to
bring Video Toaster systems and related add-on products to new customers not
being reached by other Video Toaster dealers.
  
This new merger will combine the respective strenghts of Atomic Toaster and
DevWare.
  
Atomic Toaster has been designing and configuring Video Toaster systems,
supporting the creative and technical needs of its customers, and conducting
innovative training seminars for its corporate and university clients since
late 1990. Over this period, they have learned that anyone can sell a product
or a group of products, but it is how all products work together in a system
that makes their customer's productions successful. This is why they came up
with the Atomic Toaster Catalog, the indispensible resource and reference
guide for the Video Toaster industry, produced the Audio Production For The
Video Toaster instructional video, and developed the first product in The
Scene Machine series, Crouton Tools.
  
DevWare Video, launched in late 1992 as a division of DevWare, has quickly
become the largest reseller of videotapes, books, and educational software
for North American Amiga users, and one of the largest resellers of
commercial software for animation, graphics and video purposes as well.
  
"Our concern was how we extend our abilities and gain entry into the
expanding Video Toaster industry, and be able to properly support the
products we delivered to our customers," said Scott Pincus, President of
DevWare. "When we learned that Atomic Toaster wanted to expand their
business, it seemed like the perfect merger of our abilities." 
  
"We knew that we were probably the greatest authority on how key software and
peripherals worked with the Video Toaster to become the most effective
systems for customers. Questions referred to us by NewTek and attendance at
our seminars were proof of that," said Harold Russell, President of Atomic
Toaster. "But we didn't have the capability to profitibly expand our
operations, and more importantly, handle the volume of business which would
result. DevWare offered us that solution with their marketing, distribution,
product purchasing, and fulfillment capabilities."
  
As a result of the merger, DevWare will market Crouton Tools, Audio
Production for the Video Toaster, the Atomic Toaster Catalog, future products
in The Scene Machine Series, and other new products developed by Atomic
Toaster through its DevWare Video division to end users, corporate and
university customers, and dealers. Atomic Toaster will provide creative
technical support, seminar training and continued development of The Scene
Machine modules and other products for the Video Toaster, as well as provide
technical support for other commercial software titles licensed by DevWare
Video.
  
DevWare, through its DevWare Video division, is an international licensor,
marketer and distributor of commercial software and instructional videotapes
relating to the Amiga computer and Desktop Video markets.
  
Atomic Toaster, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, has more than 20 years
experience in commercial video production and has been configuring Video
Toaster Systems for customers since the Video Toaster was first released.
Recently, they opened a California office to sell Video Toaster systems and
training seminars to corporate accounts and video producers in the greater
Los Angeles area.
  
DevWare is also a direct marketer of third-party Amiga software, hardware and
Public Domain for the Amiga and MS-DOS markets. Lower-priced niche software
licensing and distribution is done through its DevWare Toolchest division.
