Broncolor Scope D50 – the portable surface visualization system 



With the Scope D50, broncolor launches a unique, portable surface visualization system, which – by means of a digital image – reproduces absolutely authenticly the following characteristics of an object:

  • Shape 
  • Color 
  • Texture

                                              Broncolor Scope D50

The result can be viewed in any web environment and on any mobile device. 

The broncolor Scope D50 offers endless possibilities with respect to surfaces: 

  • Analyse 
  • Animate 
  • Digitally explore

The portable surface visualization system, Scope D50, has been developed in cooperation with the Start-Up TRUVIS, which originated from the Digital Humanities Lab at the University of Basel, Switzerland. 


More than digitalization 

Based on 48 single images the powerful software creates a surface model. 

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. 


For operating the Scope D50, the software TRUVIS Authentica Creator (ACreator) is needed. One license comprising two workstations is provided with every Scope D50 unit. 

The procedure is as follows: 

  • Capture 
    48 single images of an object are taken. 

  • Process
    The software generates a digital surface model of the object (including shape, color and reflection characteristics). 

  • Visualize Interactive visualizations can be created and published.
