Ortery Technologies this week announced what they say is the world's first pure white background photography studio.
The Ortery Technologies 3D PhotoBench 260 is designed for photography of three-dimensional products and other subjects against a pure white background. It's basically a self-contained 39.4x39.4x37.8-inch light box that sits on a tabletop and has a rotating transparent turntable that subjects are placed on. The camera and light box connect to a computer via USB and supplied software (Windows XP or Vista 7 only) controlls the turntable movement, camera settings, and processing workflow, making it easy to create 3D animations. It can then create animated HTML5, Flash or GIF images.
