Broncolor Scope D50 UV / IR.

  • More than photography
  • More than Lighting
  • More than digitization
  • broncolor Scope D50 meets TRUVIS
  • A new way to explore objects through different illumination angles
  • Applications include Cultural Heritage and Reproduction / Archiving 

Based on a digital surface model that can be viewed in any web environment, the broncolor scope D50 authentically reproduces the shape, colour and texture of an object.

The broncolor Scope D50 offers you unlimited possibilities to analyze, animate and digitally explore surfaces.

More than photography

Unlike classical photography, the digital recording of the broncolor Scope D50 is not static but interactive.

More than lighting

The light that affects the object can be moved virtually, making it possible to display details that are barely visible to the naked eye.

More than digitization

Based on multiple images, the system creates a surface model.

broncolor Scope D50 meets TRUVIS

The portable surface visualization system, developed by broncolor - powered by TRUVIS, is the result of a successful combination of scientific and digital innovation as well as technical know-how from 60 years of experience with photographic lighting systems.

The broncolor products, known for their quality, are developed according to high technical standards and the latest specifications.

With the Swiss start-up company TRUVIS, which originated from the Digital Humanities Lab of the University of Basel, broncolor has an experienced partner for professional visualization software at its side.

A new way to explore objects through different illumination angles

The object is illuminated from many different angles using the optimally arranged LEDs in the dome-shaped housing of the broncolor Scope D50. In order to authentically reproduce the shape, colour and texture of a surface, the surface visualization system creates a two-dimensional overall recording from 48 individual images.

This digital recording can be viewed in any web environment and mobile device thanks to the simple workflow and the optimally coordinated hardware and software.

The information that is stored digitally during the recording allows a spatially and temporally unrestricted analysis, as well as subsequent adjustment of the surface illumination. These advantages, in conjunction with its mobile usability, make the broncolor Scope D50 a trend-setting product in the field of surface visualization.

Fields of Application

Cultural Heritage

From large art museums to scientific research and remote archaeological sites: Cultural heritage imaging is currently the state of the art method for digitally capturing and recording human treasures for posterity.

The compact, portable yet robust design of the broncolor Scope D50 makes it a powerful companion in this field. Particularly the preservation of historically valuable objects is often a race against time. Many of the materials are highly sensitive and have a short lifespan. GLAM institutions concerned with the preservation of cultural heritage therefore know just how important it is to archive objects digitally in good time.

With the new broncolor Scope D50 it is now possible to capture and record a variety of objects and materials for cultural heritage purposes.

Reproduction / Archiving

An important feature for the work of museums, research institutes and cultural institutions is the reproducibility of the images.

Thanks to the integrated solution of the broncolor Scope D50, the digital image can be created, exchanged, displayed and compared anywhere in the world. This makes it possible to make qualitative and quantitative comparisons between objects with similar properties and to draw empirical conclusions.
