Computer Software - ACDSee
ACD Systems is one of the largest and most respected independent digital image editing and management companies in the world. The company was founded in 1993 in Texas by technology and imaging visionary Doug Vandekerkhove. Doug foresaw the importance of the convergence of analog and digital (print, photos, scans,video and metadata) in the 80ís, revolutionizing how analog and digital information was used in pre-Web applications. Today ACD holds seven patents, and millions of ACDSee products are in use throughout the world.
Representative markets for ACD Systems' products include AEC (architecture, engineering and construction), insurance, manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, government, architecture/construction, education, gaming, technology, bio/health and oil/gas/energy. Customers include General Motors, Caterpillar, Boeing, The New York City Fire Department, NASA, CNN and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. ACDSee software was used in the making of the movie Titanic because the filmmakers recognized that only ACDSee could provide the illustration, editing and management tools required for their large scale, complex development tasks and image management requirements.
