Future Vision Multimedia Intros Reference Tool


To meet the need for an information-driven multimedia reference source, Future Vision Multimedia announces InfoPedia, a new CD-ROM reference tool. Designed for users in need of fast access to as much information as possible, InfoPedia combines all 29 volumes of the Funk & Wagnalls New Encyclopedia with seven other reference sources, all on a single CD-ROM, making it a highly comprehensive multimedia reference tool.

InfoPedia offers over 150 state-of-the-art animations and full-motion video segments to help explain complex concepts. The program also includes thousands of full-color photographs and hours of audio to support its reference database of more than 200,000 entries. …
