METIS SOFTWARE

All METIS Software is in-house designed and developed by its R&D department.

METIS has its own proprietary file format (the MDC file format) and has created a suite of applications dedicated to all its scanners.

Thanks to this, METIS is able to provide its customers with a complete solution to meet their needs without having to use third-party software.

All applications are written in 64bit (Windows PRO 10) and are capable of handling gigabytes of images data in just a few seconds. METIS Software is user-friendly and powerful with unique features that cannot be found in other existing solutions.

METIS is continuously investing in R&D and providing the best solutions that decor industry and cultural heritage markets need, both now and in the future.

METIS SCAN DIRECTOR SOFTWARE

METIS Scan Director is a new concept of acquisition software completely designed and written by METIS based on the tremendous experience accumulated in this domain.

METIS Scan Director is aimed to respond to specific needs as:

Making the software very user friendly, allowing even a novice user to master professional scanning techniques.

This required balancing the need for a high degree of customization (typical of a professional tool) with highly automatized features. For example, the user does not need to adjust the exposure, color or graybalance of the image once set because they are maintained automatically no matter what light schematic or scanner settings are being used or how many days have past since the scanner was calibrated.

Therefore, the user instead of wasting time trying to understand “how” to get the desired result can concentrate on “choosing” the preferred one within the standard available options (or within the different customizable light configurations).

Handling the new scanning concepts. METIS have in the latest years introduced unique scanning features as METIS patented dynamic lighting control, METIS SuperScan, light gradient, light gradient mixing with colour information and lately also METIS 3D Depth MAP generation and Glossiness MAP. Those important features have radically changed the way of scanning an original (specially for Industrial and Decor applications).

Being ready for the future. METIS Scan Director already supports the latest OS (W10) with a full 64bit architecture and fully exploits the latest CPU by making extensive use of multitasking and multithreading processing. Therefore, the new METIS Scan Director is now capable of completing the most demanding image processing tasks almost in real time being able of handling GigaBytes of data in a matter of seconds.

METIS Scan Director Software also integrates the following software from METIS:

  • METIS Light Inspector (to edit SuperScan files and customize visual appearance, 3D, glossiness and much more)
  • METIS Color Profiler (for handling ICC profiles and color management of the scanner

METIS LIGHT INSPECTOR SOFTWARE

THOUSANDS OF POSSIBLE RESULTS FROM JUST ONE IMAGE!

Thanks to the METIS DC SynchroLight patented lighting technology, all METIS DRS DCS scanners have the unique ability to make a SuperScan. A SuperScan is a special acquisition mode in which the scanner automatically repeats several acquisitions of the original with different lighting settings.

Therefore, from a SuperScan file information related to the incidence of the light over the original can be calculated (a light gradient image which contain highlight and shadows variations).

Furthermore, from the SuperScan file 3D information (a 3D Depth MAP image) can also be calculated using a Photometric Stereo technique.

SuperScan images are saved into the METIS MDC proprietary format and can be processed with the METIS Light Inspector Tool that is directly integrated into the scanner software and is also available as a standalone package.

METIS Light Inspector software allow re-mixing different light directions and intensity without having to rescan the original; this is done by changing the light direction and intensity parameters in the Light Inspector software and the result is previewed in real time on the screen (thousands of different combinations are possible). This is a very useful feature because it allows finding optimal results very quickly and without having to rescan the original several times with different light schematics. Once an optimal result have been found the user can export it into a standard TIFF format directly from the Light Inspector.

The user can record different “light schematics” and export different versions of the same image at once (in TIFF format).

METIS Light Inspector software also integrates other unique features as:

  • the ability to remove the specular reflections over glossy originals;
  • the ability to calculate a 3D Depth MAP of the original;
  • the 3D Depth MAP can also be flattened in order to optimize the file for 3D printing/engraving purposes.

The 3D Depth MAP can be evaluated in real-time thanks to the integration of a realistic 3D simulation and preview tool. The main application for 3D Depth MAP is for embossing/engraving/printing purposes. Finally, the Light Inspector is now also capable of extrapolating a Glossiness MAP from the scanner original.

METIS COLOR PROFILER SOFTWARE

METIS Color Profiler have been designed in order to provide all METIS DRS DCS scanners with outstanding color fidelity and accuracy and to avoid the need for complicated calibration procedures usually required to obtain and maintain color consistency in the scanning workflow. METIS Color Profiler support different types of color target and is capable of automatically detect them. Main features are:

  • Creation of ICC scanner profiles using different type of color target (a specific one, providing the best results, is included with each METIS DRS/PM3D scanner)
  • Import/Edit/Read of reference file related to the color target to be used (X-Rite i1 and ColorMunki spectrophotometer are directly supported within METIS software)
  • Customization and editing of scanner ICC profile.
  • Optional ICC profile conversion from scanner profile to a user selected Color Space (i.e. sRGB. Adobe 1998, ECI RGB, etc.)
  • Display ICC profile selection (to properly view colors within METIS software and according to the used display)
  • Possibility to add Spot Colors to the scanner ICC profile and manually correct them
  • Color Accuracy control tool (allows to measure the scanner color accuracy over different type of color target, calculating the maximum and average DeltaE and check many other qualitative indicators. This is especially useful in Cultural Heritage applications were compliancy with a specific guideline (i.e. FADGI or METAMORFOZE) is required.
