BOOST PRODUCTIVITY AND PRODUCE MATCHING WINE PHOTOGRAPHY
Orbitvu automated photo studios are operated by the most powerful software suite on the market. The production process is streamlined from start to finish, from the placement of your wine and spirit bottles to exporting finished images. The wine business is all about passion, which is why Orbitvu offers photo studios that will facilitate some of your key marketing tasks. Orbitvu Station software lets you save photo shoot settings like lighting, product placement, framing, and image export formats so you can re-use them in multiple photo shoots for a vintage of red wine from Burgundy, a selection of bourbons or a range of vodka. Set up professional photo shoots as efficiently as possible, on your own schedule.
The multi-product cropping feature lets you shoot images of three wine bottles from the same varietal, then automatically divide and export them onto separate files (see image opposite).
FEATURES DEDICATED FOR WINE & SPIRITS
The lighting environment and the modular panels in Orbitvu’s photography studios give you advanced control over reflections and transparency in your bottle images. Enhance each section: finish, neck, shoulder, label and punt
Save camera and lighting setting profiles for each type of wine and spirits and reuse them in an unlimited way.
Create still photos or 360° animations of your wine bottles, liquor bottles, or miniatures. Then add a magnification tool and show each element of your products in detail. For example, information on the varietal displayed on the front and back of the label, state of the label, level of wine in the bottle, state of the cap, and others.
Your vintages in every detail
The progressive zoom enlarges the entire image (not just one section) to 20x, even when a bottle is 360° or 3D animated. The client can zoom in to see one of the 8 required indications on the label, then browse the entire image without losing the degree of magnification. Research shows that the more potential customers have access to detailed interactive visuals (360° animations, Focus Stacking), the higher the conversion rate.
Produce uniform images of your bottles
In the wine and spirits industry, there's a large number of images that need to be updated, especially with new arrivals and vintages. Whether you have 50 or 2000 items to photograph, Orbitvu Station software eliminates back-and-forth trips to outside service providers and standardizes photo shoots with features like product placement assistance, memorization of batch parameters to produce uniform images of all your bottles, and simultaneous export of images to multiple file formats.
