Software company Chaos, which recently merged with Enscape, has announced the acquisition of Cylindo, a platform for 3D computer visualization of commercial products. The value of the deal is not reported.
The acquisition of Cylindo enables the combined companies to create an ecosystem for 3D visualization from start to finish and make 3D, AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) content more accessible.
Founded in 2012, Cylindo facilitates the visualization and sale of products through its web-based service. It supports four quintillion (1,018) product variations and has over 18 million users per month.
Cylindo technology transforms basic product data into photorealistic 3D content that can be integrated anywhere: in product configurators, online information, augmented or virtual reality experiences, interactive room design and other marketing channels.
The platform provides a complete solution for creating, managing and distributing photorealistic product visualizations. Leading furniture manufacturers and retailers use the Cylindo platform to offer an impactful 3D experience to customers and create 2D visualizations of their products.
Following the deal, Cylindo will continue to operate as an independent brand in close cooperation with the Chaos team. All Cylindo services and solutions will continue to be developed and offered.
Cylindo’s 164-member team will remain at the company’s current offices in Boston (USA), Copenhagen (Denmark), Bitola and Skopje (Northern Macedonia). With the acquisition of Cylindo, Chaos’ global team reaches nearly 700 people around the world.
“Together with Cylindo, we will be able to meet the growing need for easy-to-use high-quality 3D visualization, augmented reality and virtual reality technologies in a variety of sectors,” said Christian Lang and Peter Mitev, CEOs of Chaos.
