CANDERA Gmbh (formerly Socionext Embedded Software Austria GmbH (Austria) has been part of ArtSpark Holding (Japan) since February 1, 2019. The new parent company has extensive experience in the development and distribution of HMI authoring tools and services in the automotive and industrial sectors. In addition to CANDERA, ArtSpark also hosts the 2 renowened companies HI Corp and Celsys (with the well-known Manga design tool “Clip Studio Paint”).
The sale of the Austrian HMI Tool provider from Socionext Inc. Japan to ArtSpark was a collaborative and strategic decision. Indeed, over the years, CGI Studio has become an important HMI authoring tool for Socionext’s high-quality SoC solutions for automotive graphics. As CGI Studio is hardware-independent, the business opportunities for devices using non-Socionext SoCs are increasing. In order to enable and secure the future development and growth of CANDERA and CGI Studio, Socionext has decided to transfer the company to a company with extensive experience in the development and distribution of HMI authoring tools and services in the industry Automotive and industrial sectors. After careful consideration and discussion, Socionext has agreed with ArtSpark on this transfer.
CANDERA becomes part of the ArtSpark Group and will lead CGI Studio’s development and sales expansion activities. In certain regions, once the transfer is complete, Socionext will continue to distribute and provide customer support to CGI Studio.
