REALVIZ was founded in 1998 and is headquartered in Sophia Antipolis, France. REALVIZ’s technology generates 3D content and visual effects from photo imaging and 2D environments. Its products are used for panoramic photography, image-based modeling, match moving and optical motion capture. REALVIZ’s flagship products are Stitcher software for the creation of panoramas and 360° virtual tours, and ImageModeler software to produce 3D models from photographs.

“REALVIZ’s technology is complementary to Autodesk’s modeling, visual effects and animation products. It will enable us to increase the use of 3D technology across many industries, including architecture, film, broadcast and game development,” said Amar Hanspal, senior vice president at Autodesk.
