Optis, a specialist in the simulation of optics, light and human vision, has been developing decision-making software solutions for all industrial sectors for 25 years, announces the acquisition of Newscape Technology, the French specialist in complex 3D visualization for mobile devices.
Newscape is based in Lannion; The company is known for its YesCitiz software, the first community mobile application of 3D city plans. These intial mobile photo-textured 3D applications were aimed at the general public, and Newscape subsequently developed B2B solutions for the mobile 3D CAD market, including NST3DCAD. This highly specialized technology enables mesh optimization to handle heavy and complex models on mobiles or tablets. By allowing 3D models to easily leave the engineering department and be used in Virtual Reality, this technology opens up new perspectives: 3D models come out of the design studio and are used as real communication tools throughout the company. The solution, independent of the original CAD software, is based on a patented technology, unique in the world. Prestigious clients such as Total, H2X, SMB Offshore and Endel have already adopted NST3DCAD in the product development cycle.
"The use of the Internet, smart phones and other touchscreen devices is growing, and our customers have a critical need to take full advantage of these new uses, not only in their sales and marketing services, but also for their design and methods office, and even in production. Indeed, the visualization of large assemblies on mobile devices is a real challenge, the latter having only limited power. Newscape Technologies has met and succeeded in this challenge and has developed totally innovative solutions," said Jacques Delacour, CEO of Optis.
"With Optis' solutions, we already know that we can make the most of our technology by putting it at the service of the industry,"adds Luc Klaine, project manager for Newscape.
Optis' goal today is to combine the best of newscape's technologies and its own solutions to strengthen and extend them to all industrial sectors.
First, Optis will adapt the NST3DCAD solution to its immersive virtual reality tool, allowing the user to validate the assembly, use, maintenance and dismantling processes of its products in a 1/1 scale environment. Optis customers will have the ability to use complex models to train people on large industrial 3D assemblies, such as airplanes, boats or power plants, etc., simulating every detail down to the smallest screw and adding high realism thanks to Optis technology.
