3D Surface Director: Complete Solution for digital surface creation

A brand new turn-key solution targeting designers and manufactures of surface products that consists of the unique SURF 3D digitization hardware and a complete software suite to acquire, transform and output complete surface description data.

Turn real colors, natural structures and light reflexions into new surface products... 

 

ColorGATE is a proud OEM of METIS Systems srl 

 The italian high-tech scanner manufacturer supplies its latest innovation the METIS Surf 3D in a special ColorGATE Edition to form the acquisition system for original surface digitization. A smart combination of METIS Light Inspector in combination with ColorGATE’s Décor Productionserver (DPS) color management platform build the software ecosystem for digital surface creation.


  • Complete Solution
  • SuperScan – total appearance digitization

    The METIS Light Inspector software acquires with its SuperScan a complete surface description that includes accurate color definition, depth structure and reflectance information of the digitized object surface. The SuperScan can be used to reprocess the light condition in terms of its direction and intensity in order to change the visual appearance of SuperScan image.

    Color accuracy is ensured by a unique color calibration and color conversion process. A surfaces depth structure information can be visualized, modified and stored in an embossing depth map. A reflectivity map describes the reflectance properties of a surface with its characteristics like reflections and shadows.

    DPS Surface Director Edition
    Color management software with a direct driver to turn the SURF 3D hardware into a color meter to be used for ICC-characterization of any color printing device. The unique Out of Gamut Module allows to visually inspect the new surfaces color data with respect to there produceability on a given printing system before the complete print data will be generated. A brand new turn-key solution targeting designers and manufactures of surface products that consists of the unique SURF 3D digitization hardware and a complete software suite to acquire, transform and output complete surface description data.

    Universal Surface Director TIFF driver
    Supports all common output color modes in any resolution including special color information for primer, white, gloss or varnish. It is possible but not necessary to extend the DPS Surface Director Edition with direct printer drivers and other application specific modules.

    Connectivity to all platforms
    The industry wide supported TIFF format opens up connections to all further image editing software such as Adobe Photoshop and TIFF serves as a standard file format that most DFE’s and 3rd party RIPs can handle. This ensures that basically any printing system can take advantage of this new solution.
