Adobe Acquires 3D Technology and Expertise

December 16, 2004


Adobe Systems Incorporated announced it has acquired OKYZ S.A. -- a privately held French company specializing in 3D collaboration software. The acquisition allows Adobe to make good use of OKYZ's technology by adding 3D functionality to Adobe's enterprise process management system, the Intelligent Document Platform (IDP).

OKYZ's software products include Raider3D Capture, Raider3D Live and Raider3D Publish. Although terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, Adobe noted that it will not have a material impact on the company finances.

"Adobe recognizes the significant trend toward 3D-based collaboration," said Ivan Koon, senior vice president, Intelligent Documents Business Unit, Adobe. "OKYZ brings 3D technology and expertise to Adobe's ongoing effort to enable our customers to view, interact and exchange a wide variety of content in Adobe PDF."
