Virginia Systems Updates Text Retrieval
and Document Imaging Systems

March 29, 2006 Midlothian, Virginia. Virginia Systems announced today that it is shipping updated versions of its Macintosh and Windows text retrieval and document imaging systems. The updated products are Sonar, Sonar Professional, and Sonar Image.

Sonar Professional and Sonar Image now support a new feature, called Associated Subjects, that can parse the English in documents to produce a list of subects that associated with a given search term. This powerful technology, based on a similar technology in our Sonar Bookends Professional and Sonar Bookends InDex Pro automatic indexing products, can find subjects in sentences regardless of capitalization and punctuation. Associated Subjects gives you a whole new way to analyze and understand the content of your documents!

A free demo of Sonar Professional is available on Virginia Systems' web site at:

Pricing for a single-user license is $295 for Sonar, $795 for Sonar Professional, and $995 for Sonar Image. Update costs for a single-user license are $150 for Sonar, $300 for Sonar Professional, and $350 for Sonar Image.

Virginia Systems was founded in 1984 and specializes in document imaging, text retrieval, automatic index-generation, cross-referencing, sequencing, and footnote software.
