Digitization and
virtualization services

Your products need to be specced.
Architects, designers and other professionals need your digital or virtual products.

Struggling with color accuracy, texture reproduction, quality consistency, varying lighting conditions, and management of your digital assets? Our mission: once for all uses.

Get the digital or virtual twin of your product for all uses—once—for the life cycle of your product: website, print, CAD software such as SketchUp, 2020 Design, Revit, Vectorworks, etc.

From start to finish, our team uses
scientific processes, controlled methods,
and technologies to create repeatable
and high-quality results.

Digitization

Digitization

Product digitization is the process of creating a digital version of the real/physical product. The common outcome is an image file .jpeg, .png, .tiff, etc.

  • Highest resolution up to 900 DPI
  • High quality: balanced brightness and contrast levels across all images
  • High fidelity: accurate color reproduction
  • Texture/finish reproduction: texture bumps are accurate too!
  • High efficiency for synthetic products: colors and textures are separately capture, which means less products to digitize; colors and textures are digitally combined afterward

Virtualization

Virtualization

Virtualization refers to the act of creating a virtual version of the product. For architects and designers, this means having access to the virtual product through their day-to-day favorite design software and tools to create and present their projects.

  • Repeatable/tillable images
  • High fidelity and texture reproduction when supported
  • Ready to use packages for popular CAD software: SketchUp, (including 3D Warehouse publishing) Revit, 2020 Design, ArchiCAD, Chief Architect, Vectorworks, Cabinet Vision, etc.
