Authentica in Action

See how the Authentica framework provides a new level of flexibility for working with remote and hard to access objects.

Data aquisition can be realized fast and in situ with minimal infrastructure.

Data processing, detailed examination, editing or preparation for archival can then be achieved remotely without direct access to the objects.

Put your product in the spotlight

Truvis Authentica provides a engaging and interactive experience.

Reflecting the true visual appearance of surface color and texture more accurately and more tangible than simple images.

Make the invisible visible

Gain new insights through detailed and accurate surface examination.

Truvis Authentica extracts rich information about the true color, reflection behaviour, texture and surface shape of objects.

Advanced rendering methods allow for virtual enhancement of specific surface characteristics. This can reveal e.g. fine irregularities like scratches and dents in surface texture.

Drag the handle on the image to compare different rendering methods.
