Optis, a specialist in the simulation of optics, light and human vision, with 25 years' experience in developing business intelligence software solutions for all industrial sectors, announces the acquisition of Newscape Technology, the French specialist in complex 3D visualization for mobile terminals.
Newscape is based in Lannion, France, and is renowned for its YesCitiz software, the first mobile community application for 3D city maps. These initial photo-textured mobile 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 for manipulating heavy, complex models on mobiles or tablets. By enabling 3D models to easily leave the engineering department and be used in Virtual Reality, this technology opens up new perspectives: 3D models leave the design studio and are used as genuine communication tools throughout the company. The solution, which is independent of the original CAD software, is based on a patented technology that is unique in the world. Prestigious customers such as Total, H2X, SMB Offshore and Endel have already adopted NST3DCAD in their product development cycle.
" The use of the Internet, smart phones and other touch-screen terminals is on the increase, and our customers have a vital need to take full advantage of these new uses, not only in their sales and marketing departments, but also for their design and engineering departments, and right through to production. Indeed, visualizing large assemblies on mobile devices is a real challenge, given the limited power of these devices. Newscape Technologies has risen to this challenge and developed totally innovative solutions "says Jacques Delacour, Optis CEO.
" With Optis solutions, we already know that we can make the most of our technology by putting it to work for the industry." adds Luc Klaine, Newscape project manager.
Optis' objective today is to combine the best of Newscape's various technologies and its own solutions, to consolidate and extend them to all industrial sectors.
As a first step, Optis will adapt the NST3DCAD solution to its immersive virtual reality tool, enabling users to validate the assembly, use, maintenance and dismantling processes of their products in a 1/1 scale environment. aux Optis customers will thus be able to use complex models to train people on large-scale 3D industrial assemblies, such as aircraft, ships or power plants, etc., by simulating every detail down to the smallest screw, and adding a high degree of realism thanks to Optis technology.
