Since the invention of the first photocopier, business communication has typically taken place in 2D; with 2D photocopying, 2D printing and 2D faxing leading the field. Recent advancements in photocopying technologies have led to the introduction of digital photocopiers, multi-function printer/scanner/fax copiers and "hands free" photocopying; yet photocopying is still a two dimensional process…or is it?!
Ortery is set to revolutionise business communication with its latest breakthrough in photocopying technology - the Photosimilie 5000. Hailed as the "next generation imaging device for the office", Photosimilie 5000 is the world's first fully integrated 3D office photography machine. Incorporating Silverlight® technology with a simple point and click operation, the Photosimilie 5000 generates hemispherical Flash animations, 360° Flash animations and still photography to create professional and impressive business communications.
Originally exhibited during 2008's International CES conference held in Las Vegas, the Photosimilie 5000 literally creates fully dimensional copies of 3D objects placed inside it. Its unique function incorporates a PC-controlled lightbox, embedded turntable, PC-controlled lighting and a compatible Canon SLR camera to create 360° shots and 2D still photos. With its ability to automatically shoot and "stitch" up to 100 images together, the Photosimilie seems like a complicated piece of equipment to utilise. However Ortery have ensured that even digital imaging equipment novices can master the Photosimilie 5000 with its simple to use yet powerful workflow software.
The true power of the Photosimilie 5000 lies in its ability to completely transform the way that offline and online businesses communicate. With the Photosimilie 5000, sharp 2D photocopies of real products can be taken to improve marketing collateral and business-to-stakeholder communications. Ecommerce companies and e-retailers can make use of its animation capabilities to create product videos which show potential customers all the details which are typically lost when viewing product images online.
The Photosimilie is also useful for businesses during product development stages since it takes full and separate images across all 360-degrees of an object.
While the benefits of 3D photocopying and image capture can be many for certain types of businesses; the Photosimilie 5000 is not a substitute for a hard-working office photocopier! And retailing at an average cost of $20,000, is Ortery really photocopying the future with this space-age machine?
