The TAC™ Ecosystem is a simple-to-operate solution that enables the creation of virtual renderings with the exact same optical characteristics as the real material. You’ll love the accuracy and consistency of appearance across every step of the product development process. The outcome? What you see on screen is what you see in the final product.
TAC7 is the physical material scanner for X-Rite’s Total Appearance Capture (TAC) Ecosystem, scanning physical material samples to produce highly accurate digital material definitions.
The X-Rite Pantora Material Hub is a controlling hub for X-Rite Total Appearance Capture (TAC) Ecosystem components, connecting digital material input sources with output destinations.
Scanned information is communicated to the PANTORA™ Material Hub as Appearance Exchange Format (AxF) files. The AxF output format is vendor neutral and is easily accessed by most major Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Computer-Aided Design (CAD), and state-of-the art rendering applications, so there is no need for design departments to change their current information system infrastructure.
