OPTIS & JVCKENWOOD agreed to develop the interoperability of their offer in Europe

The objective is to improve design and validation practices for automotive lighting systems

September 7th, 2017 | Partnership


OPTIS and JVCKENWOOD today extend their partnership in Europe, after a first collaboration popular among Japanese car manufacturers.  Today, JVCKENWOOD in Europe and OPTIS Europe divisions are combining their know-how and technologies for automotive lighting. By developing the full interoperability of their offerings, the two companies provide manufacturers and suppliers a complete and turnkey solution for the creation and validation of their lighting systems.


Thanks to SPEOS – the illumination simulation software developed by OPTIS - and JVC’s D-ILA (Direct Image Light Amplifier) screens, the automotive players benefit from a unique package for the analysis and design of their lighting systems, with the desire to bring value to the user experience. The exclusive compatibility developed with HDR screens from JVC allows the market operators to create and visualize near-real, trustworthy, virtual mockups, that will help teams to make quick and reliable decisions during their development process. The very high peak-brightness and superior color reproduction of the screen, combined with the accurate, physically realistic simulations of OPTIS, make it an ideal package for the design of interior and exterior vehicle lighting. In other words, manufacturers and suppliers can now simulate real-world lighting systems without having to build physical prototypes.

"Contrary to traditional displays, JVC's HDR display enables to visualize the results obtained with SPEOS time better regarding colors and lighting intensity,"

commented Jochen Hahn, General Manager EMEA for Professional Projection Systems.

" The combination of these two technologies empower companies to simulate realistic lighting with an unmatched accuracy."

" Validation on a virtual screen is undoubtedly time and cost saving, via creative and realistic production design simulation,"

concluded Jacques Delacour, CEO, and founder of OPTIS.

"The faithful display of virtual prototypes, close to what you would perceive in reality, is a guarantee to make the right decision, early in the design process."
