GENESIS to join OPTIS Group
GENESIS Acoustics set to join OPTIS Group, the world leader in simulation in the domain of light and vision.
Aix-en-Provence, France, September 25, 2015
Genesis Acoustics (www.genesis.fr), the French leader of sound simulation and perception founded in Aix-en-Provence in 1999, will join OPTIS, the world leader for visual simulation created in Toulon in 1989. When two companies from Provence meet, when acoustics meets optics:
GENESIS Founder and CEO Patrick Boussard affirmed:
“After 16 years of innovation, GENESIS has become the expert team in the simulation of sound and analysis of sound perception. Ever since expanding into the international market in 2008, we have continued to look for and find ways to accelerate our development with a strategy based on developing new technologies and selling them worldwide, all while continuing to invest in R&D which is at the heart of our innovation process.
“We are very pleased to join OPTIS Group. As part of the group, we will develop and combine our cross-competences to accelerate the expansion of our product offerings into international markets. The OPTIS vision totally resonates with GENESIS: we both believe that the simulation of physical sensations, whether sight or hearing, is fundamental to study human perception and create the products of tomorrow.”
The two companies are both experts in highly complex physical simulation: sound for GENESIS and light for OPTIS. They will now propose a joint offer in optics and acoustics to their customers. “I was amazed at all the similarities between our two companies and also to see that we shared a same customer base. Companies such as Airbus, Renault, Hyundai, Nissan and Chrysler have already adopted GENESIS’ solutions to improve their sound design,” OPTIS President and CEO Jacques Delacour remarked. “OPTIS is experiencing a fast growth period and plans to grow to 200 collaborators by the end of 2015. The growth OPTIS is currently experiencing with light and visualization foreshadows the promising future of GENESIS and of acoustics and sound representation.”
OPTIS, the virtual prototyping company, brings life and emotion to all industrial projects. Its world-leading solutions pave the way for a revolutionary design process : towards zero physical prototype. Since 1989, OPTIS offers its know-how in light and human vision simulation into famous CAD/CAM software and dedicated virtual immersive solutions.
