    rFactor 2 gets a boost as ISI announce a partnership with Luminis

    https://www.luminis.eu/blog/rfactor-...rship-luminis/
    (Chris is at Simracing Expo, so I said I would post this for him.)

    September 16th, 2016, Image Space Incorporated (ISI) of Michigan and the developer of the rFactor 2 simulated racing platform, today announced a strategic partnership with the Dutch software group Luminis to accelerate rFactor 2’s development. The partnership will be brought into a new company: Studio 397.

    Gjon Camaj, Vice President of Image Space Incorporated: “We at ISI are very pleased to have found a partner that shares our enthusiasm and vision for the continued growth of rFactor 2. We look forward to working with Luminis to expand the reach of rFactor 2 both in Europe and beyond. After having worked with Luminis for some time and seeing their passion for motorsport simulation, this partnership was a natural next step. By leveraging each of our company’s individual strengths, we will be better able to serve our current customers and further expand our reach into the world of motorsports.”

    Marcel Offermans, Luminis Fellow and Managing Director of Studio 397: “I am really excited by the opportunities that our partnership with ISI offers; rFactor 2 represents the best of breed simulator platform in the industry. Online simracing has been my longtime personal passion, so the opportunity to combine it with my business feels like a great privilege. By infusing the platform with some of our own technology we see great opportunities to accelerate development in general and specifically in the areas of competitions and training.”

    The new partnership plans to release an ambitious roadmap for rFactor 2’s further development shortly; initial plans include improvements to the user interface, a DX11 based graphics engine including VR support and new propositions for strategic partners by the end of 2016, as well as increasing the frequency of new car and track releases.

    ISI is a Michigan-based corporation focused on applying engineering expertise to develop a range of simulator products. It is the developer and owner of a variety of software products including rFactor, rFactor 2 and rFactor Pro.

    Luminis is a Dutch based software technology company employing 150 developers in the Netherlands and UK. It develops advanced technical software related to cloud computing, data sciences and interconnected devices. Luminis also developed and exploits the Summar.io personalized educational platform.

    Studio 397 will have its headquarters in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands and will operate under the leadership of Marcel Offermans.

    A question has come to mind:

    It's been noted by Chris that things are being worked on "for the next build" so to speak in various threads, will that Build be the final ISI released one? Or has that been handed over to Luminis to release? ta

    Yippiiiee! finally this fine program is in hopefully better and more professional hands!
    Just lets hope that rF2 isnt totally vanished from simracers Radar before the changes are accessible.

    Seems like natural evolution for a company that has developed good tech. It doesn't seem like a life preserver to me, have always thought ISI was just trying to get their tech right before moving to the next level. A refreshing concept.

    Edit: Hope you have a plan for that logo. In the science of art, you should never put red next to blue without a divider, usually white, because the brain cannot see both together, it sees them separately. It is evident with the red and blue of 3d glasses. It is scientifically an immediate and subconscious negative to the human brain. Just a thought.

    Studio 397 can manage releases already.
