Optech to Bundle the PolyWorks IMAlign Module with ILRIS-3D Deliveries Worldwide

Toronto, Canada – Optech Incorporated, a provider of advanced lidar survey instruments, announced today that it is collaborating with InnovMetric Software Inc. (Québec, Canada) to bundle ILRIS-3D products with the PolyWorksâ point cloud processing software suite. Under the terms of this agreement, Optech will bundle a license of the PolyWorks IMAlign module with each ILRIS system.

The PolyWorks IMAlign module offers powerful scan alignment capabilities to produce an aligned point cloud from multiple scans. The alignment technology is based on the geometrical shape in overlapping scan areas, eliminating the time-consuming task of using physical targets in the field, and reducing significantly the time for work on site and in the office. The IMAlign module also supports the use of control points when available.

“With the ever increasing variety of third party processing offerings in today’s market, it is crucial to provide an industry recognized premium alignment tool when using the scanner with the largest dynamic ranging capability on the market,” said Brent Gelhar, Vice President Sales and Product Strategy. “From our experience, PolyWorks is the most effective solution to precisely align the large number of points acquired by our ILRIS-3D systems.”

“We are very proud that Optech has chosen the PolyWorks IMAlign module as their de facto scan alignment tool for their ILRIS-3D scanner sales,” said Marc Soucy, President of InnovMetric Software Inc. “Since 2000, our two companies have been working closely to provide the best point cloud processing tools to the surveying world. With this agreement, I foresee the continuation of a fruitful collaboration for the years to come.”
