Professional quality images

Perfect object lighting

Every professional photographer knows, that you can only perfectly lighten object or background, but never both.
ALPHASHOT can automatically get rid of background, which means you do not need to take care about it any more. You can focus on the object to make perfect images without over-burning or unevenly lighting it.

packshot on different backgrounds

Perfect background removal in a few seconds

ALPHASHOT is not cutting out the background, it is mathematically calculating transparency level of each single pixel.
It does it automatically while shooting an image, much faster and usually more precise, than humans do.
It does not matter if the object is white, colourful or black. ALPHASHOT can even calculate transparency for transparent objects.
Fringe is removed by default.

packshots with perfect colours

good colour rendering

ALPHASHOT includes more than 3,000 high power, selected, daylight LEDs, which allow excellent colour reproduction. Obtained in this way picture is very realistic, can accurately show the details of the object.
As a side effect, LEDs also help protecting the environment: have by far the smallest power consumption per lumen and very long life – more than 10.000 hours of continuous operation.

Alpha Channel for free

ALPHASHOT can automatically create alpha channel even for transparent objects. This means that the photographer does not need to focus on obtaining a uniform background, which usually leads to uneven exposure of the photographed subject.

Reflections control

Anyone who has ever photographed any shiny product knows how difficult it is to show texture of the object, and at the same time achieve a nice and balanced reflection.
ALPHASHOT can separately control each of the six LED panels, which help to bring out product details and at the same time avoid unnecessary reflection.
