Bordeaux, France, September 02, 2011 – Visualization Sciences Group SAS (VSG) announces that it has signed a definitive agreement today under which VSG acquires Noesis SA, a leader in image processing and analysis software.

For more than 20 years, Noesis has been developing software solutions addressing advanced image processing needs in scientific and industrial applications. Around its flagship product Visilog, Noesis has developed a unique expertise in image processing and analysis. It has further leveraged this know-how in developing custom algorithms and workflows to solve specific cases in various application areas, from materials analysis to biology and pharmaceuticals.

VSG develops Avizo® Fire, a leading software application that provides advanced 3D visualization and state-of-the-art quantification capabilities to researchers and engineers who require great insight into complex 3D image data, in materials science, geosciences, environmental or engineering applications.

Noesis has been a long-time partner of VSG, providing an integrated version of its Visilog software as advanced quantification module of Avizo Fire. The acquisition of Noesis by VSG will provide even more performance to the already powerful combination of the Visilog image processing and quantification capabilities with the Avizo Fire’s 3D visualization, analysis and communication tools.

Commenting on the agreement, Laurent Bernard, General Manager of Noesis says “the Noesis team is really excited to become part of VSG. Noesis’ know-how and tools will now be fully integrated with a leading 3D data analysis product, addressing first-class customers’s most challenging visualization and analysis needs worldwide”.
