Upgrade to Pro

arivis Pro SIS Converter-free vs. enhanced license

Request PRO License

Save one Day!

Upon completion of your experiment, the arivis SIS Converter Pro does all the work for you! Previously, image file conversion could only be manually started after acquisition had finished. With the enhanced license, file conversion can start as soon as the first time point is generated. The result is a ready-to-use .sis file as soon as its acquisition is finished. This means you can start your analysis a day early!

The SIS Converter Pro operates independently from your ZEISS arivis Pro license, enabling standalone automatic file conversion of 2D/3D/4D image data set into the arivis .sis format as fast as you can save your acquired files.

Use the "Watchdog" interface to monitor multiple source data folders at regular or custom-defined intervals, and to create custom rules for automatic conversion without programming knowledge.

Intelligent pattern matching allows for easy setup and handling. Add time points, channels, or planes to form new multidimensional sis.files, or add them to existing sis.files.


  • Unattended automatic image file conversion and import
  • Time point by time point, plane by plane or channel by channel raw file conversion directly into .sis format
  • Automatic addition of newly generated images to existing .sis files
  • Interactive, speedy handling and analysis of large, multidimensional image data
  • Multiple configurable import sources for file conversion
  • Fast, automatic file conversion process parallel to image acquisition shortens time to results
