LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)-- Jan 07, 2010 -- Ortery Technologies, Inc. (South Hall Booth 32036)- Imagine walking up to a new office device, placing an object inside, and seconds later walking away with a professional photo for immediate use in all print, web and email communications. Taking its name from "facsimile", Photosimile 5000 is the next generation imaging device for the office.

This PC-controlled desktop photography studio, integrates a 28 x 28 x 28" light box (featuring 6500K daylight bulbs, an automated camera positioning system and built-in turntable) with a Canon SLR camera and powerful workflow software to simplify and automate business photography. With Photosimile 5000, anyone can create professional, shadow-free pictures ideal for web, print and daily business communication. No experience necessary!

The camera and light box connect to a PC via USB. Photosimile 5000 software controls the studio, camera location, turntable movement, camera settings, picture taking and processing workflows. Simply place an item inside, compose using Preview, Zoom and Crop commands in the software. Click Snap and the picture automatically downloads to the PC screen in seconds. Users can annotate, mask, email and batch process images with regards to file name, size, and resolution, watermarking and saving.

In addition to still photos, Photosimile 5000 creates professional 360-degree and hemispherical flash files. It's fully automated, fast and accurate. The turntable holds up to 25lbs and the system takes between 4 and 200 pictures per 360-degree rotation at 10 unique angles from 0 to 90°.

Ortery Real3D, included in Photosimile 5000 for image composition, creates full spherical, hemispherical and cylindrical animations with mouse control, image tagging and deep zoom capabilities to 14X. Resulting product animations are comparable to interacting with the physical product.

The Custom Define feature allows users to create and re-use custom sequences of photos at different camera positions and turntable locations.

"Photosimile 5000 offers everyone the opportunity to communicate more effectively using photos and animations," said Sam Shearer Managing Director, Ortery Technologies, Inc. "It was built to enhance daily business communication, but the ability to automate three dimensional image capture and digital presentation also has groundbreaking implications for ecommerce."

Photosimile 5000 runs on Windows XP, Vista and Window 7.
