have been designed and built by EAI."

A correspondingly large scale production plant, equipped with ultramodern technology, was located in West Long Banch (New Jersey, USA), with affiliated EAI Computation Centers in Princeton (New Jersey, USA), Los Angeles (California, USA), San Francisco (California, USA) and for the European market – in Brussels (Belgium)
and Burgess Hi ll (Sussex, England). EAI customers include aeronautics and the aerospace industry (for example NASA), biomedicine, chemicals technology, foods and textiles industries and the military.

As early as 1963, this work won second prize in the first Computer Art Contest of the magazine Computers and Automation, which launched this international competition for computer graphics in both 1963 and the following year, first prize was awarded to graphics by the US.
