The partnership focuses on a strong agreement aiming at supporting both technologies and bringing together the best of BARCO’s and OPTIS’ know-how. Barco will showcase OPTIS-generated demonstrations at the Barco Experience Center, located in Barco’s headquarters in Kortrijk, Belgium. The Barco Experience Center is the place where customers and partners come to experience Barco’s latest technology in full interactivity.


Running in the center, the high-fidelity visualizations of OPTIS will enable Barco to highlight the quality of the rendering capacities of its solutions and technological innovations. Kurt Doornaert, Business & Market Director VR Worldwide at Barco, comments:

“OPTIS works with big companies all around the world, and many major actors of the aerospace or the automotive industry trust OPTIS’ virtual reality solutions. By hosting OPTIS demonstrations in our Experience Center, we want to offer our visitors a brand-new immersive experience”.


This partnership also gives OPTIS’ customers and partners the opportunity to discover OPTIS physics-based 3D visualizations at their best.


“OPTIS provides high-end visualizations and unique VR demos based on light and human vision simulation,”

said  Jacques Delacour, President at OPTIS.


“Our solutions make it possible to create virtual mockups used as reliable decision-making tools in the industry. Exhibiting at Barco’s - in their wow effect demonstration center - is a very good way for OPTIS to certify the accuracy of our true-to-life simulations and reach a new audience”.

The result of the collaboration is open to Barco’s Experience Center visitors from November  2017.
