OPTIS is the world leading software editor for the scientific simulation of light and human vision within a Virtual Reality Environment. Its solutions allow designers, ergonomists and engineers to simulate and optimize lighting performance, product appearance as well as the visibility and legibility of information on Human Machine Interfaces, in a fully-immersive environment.

Since integrating its SPEOS solution in CATIA V5 in 2002 OPTIS is still the only company in the world to provide a light simulation solution fully based on a physical model inside a CAD/CAM software.

OPTIS has delivered more than 8100 licences to 2400 customers in 50 countries worldwide. Users include most of the major automotive, aerospace, electronics, white goods and lighting manufacturers, as well as architects, universities, research laboratories and defence agencies. They use OPTIS solutions to design, simulate and visualise in a Virtual Reality environment, products as diverse as automotive lighting, mobile phone screens and keypads, dashboard and cockpit displays, LCDs, LEDs, luminaires, and optics for digital vision and medical applications.

Software Partnership

CAA Applications

Value proposition

OPTIS has been a Dassault Systèmes Software Partner since 2002 providing light and vision simulation capabilities fully based on a physical model to CATIA V5 users.

Integration in CATIA V5 gives users of OPTIS solutions a :

  • highly user friendly interface
  • advanced light and optical simulation directly integrated in their overall product design process.
  • physically correct computer-generated images suitable for decision making
  • time savings of up to 80%
  • reduced need for physical prototypes
  • the advanced functionalites needed to take their innovations further
  • direct import of material appearance into their simulation
  • ergonomics studies taking into account human visual perception
  • visualisation of light, color and material effects in a 3D immersive environment


OPTIS has benefited from the partnership in the following ways:

  • development of the automotive and aeronautic sectors
  • access to DS' international distribution network
  • marketing and communications synergies
