Beyond Photography

Truvis Authentica extracts the surface texture, true color and reflection characteristics of real-life objects.

Dynamic Lighting

Enables interactive re-lighting in a 3D-environment under virtual lighting conditions.

Display Anywhere

Based on open web standards, Authentica visualizations run in any modern browser. No installation required.

How it works


Capture multiple images of your object of interest under controlled illumination conditions.

A set of images with fixed viewpoint and varying light directions serves as the source data for our algorithms.

Our approach is independent of the illumination device and camera type used for image aquisition.

Bring your own illumination device, or use the custom built Truvis Helios S53 portable light dome.


Process images to extract shape, color and reflection characteristics and generate digital material textures with Authentica Creator.

Based on a technology called Reflectance Transformation Imaging, which estimates the reflection behaviour and local topography of surfaces, our algorithms produces interactively relightable images.

Our patented approach for gloss recognition results in highly realistic visualizations also for more complex objects and materials.


Visualize the results in an interactive environment for further analyzis, documentation or online presentation.

Analyze and document the state of objects in detail, or edit and compose stunning scenes and visualizations. All directly in Authentica Creator.

Publish interactive visualizations to any webpage with rti.js, a free library based on standard web technologies.
