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", the 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 a built-in 3D turntable) with a Canon digital 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.

Photosimile 5000 also creates 360-degree product shots and spherical 3D flash animations. It boasts the ability to hold up to 25lbs and take up to 72 pictures per 360-degree rotation at 9 unique angles from 0 to 90 degrees. Fully automated, Photosimile 5000 can take and stitch 20 pictures in approximately 2.5 minutes. Images can be exported as JPGs or stitched together in the software to create animated GIF or Flash files. "The trend of offering website visitors 360-degree product views is just beginning," said Sam Shearer, Managing Director, Ortery Technologies, Inc. "However, it will quickly become a competitive requirement critical to ecommerce success."
