PARIS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — Today Marxent®, the leading 3D visualization platform company for furniture and kitchen cabinet retailers and Decod, the European leader in CGI lifestyle imagery, announced a partnership to convert Decod’s photo-realistic CGI 3D lifestyle images into assets for Marxent’s real-time 3D Room Designer, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality applications.
With Marxent’s recent expansion into the United Kingdom and France, the partnership offers an efficient and innovative approach to serving European retailers. Going forward, retailers who work with Decod will be able to convert any CGI 3D model into a real-time 3D model for use with Marxent applications, providing significant cost savings along with content consistency.
“We’re already working with some of Europe’s most respected retail brands and they expect a lot from the 3D content we deliver. Reusability has become critical while standards for quality and realism have remained rigorous,” said Thomas Griffoin, Founder and CEO at Decod. “The partnership with Marxent allows us to ensure that Decod client assets work beautifully everywhere — from print advertising and e-commerce to Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.”
“People want to design the way they shop: from photos,” said Beck Besecker, CEO and Co-Founder of Marxent. “Decod’s CGI work is some of the finest in the industry, and this partnership allows their customers to purchase assets once and put them to use on any platform.”

U.S.-based Marxent teamed with Macy’s for the largest nationwide VR rollout in U.S. history, and also works with major European retailers to deliver premium 3D content experiences to customers however and wherever they shop.
