Draper, Utah-based 3D model and software developer DAZ Prods. Inc. today announced that it has acquired Eovia Corp., developer and publisher Carrara and other leading 3D animation, modeling and rendering solutions. Effective immediately, DAZ has taken ownership of the Mountain View, Calif.-based company, including its entire development, marketing and sales divisions. The acquisition also gives DAZ all technology rights to Carrara and Hexagon, a 3D modeling software from Eovia Europe S.A., though that company will not be acquired by DAZ.
‘This move provides an important step forward in achieving our vision to expand the 3D market to the masses by providing high-quality 3D software that is economical and easy to use,’ says Dan Farr, president of DAZ Prods. ‘By bringing together Carrara and Hexagon with the Bryce, Mimic and DAZ|Studio solutions, we will provide a compelling suite of 3D software tools with a unified vision.’
Eovia and DAZ have been partners since 2004, when Eovia became the exclusive representative for all DAZ products in Europe. DAZ assures the passionate Eovia user community that it will continue to support and develop Eovia’s most popular products.
Terms of the acquisition have not yet been released. Additional information and an FAQ on the acquisition are available on the DAZ website at www.daz3d.com and the Eovia website at www.eovia.com.
