What is ViBox and who benefits

What is ViBox?

Video Box allows the manufacturer to prepare images and movies for the diamond and diamond jewelry.

The diamonds are unique due to their breath taking brilliance, fire and scintillating performance. The value of the diamond depends on 4Cs, namely Carat, Color, Clarity and Cut. In this regard, the Lab grading reports and their numerical data are incomprehensible to most retailers and consumers. So a better way to raise efficiency of diamond sales via on-line business to business (B2B) and business to consumer (B2C) is via high quality images, especially video. Images tell only half the story, as most of the beauty attributes are dynamic and can be appreciated in stereo environment. So a dynamic display of the polish diamond can greatly improve on-line apprising.

Movies made by diamond cutting manufacturers can be used to sell diamonds business to business, provided a consistent standard is maintained. The very same movie can be used by a retailer to sell a diamond to his consumer..

The movies thus generated tells the true and understandable story to the retail buyer / trader. At the same time, it will appropriately fascinate the end buyer. Very detailed high dynamic range images and video shows many significant diamond features including color, impurities, imperfection, and performance attributes like contrast, scintillations, fire, and many others.

  • Creates consistent high quality images and movies highlighting all the features you will like to see.
  • Quick and programmable lighting environment to demonstrate imperfections and/or the beauty attributes.
  • Can create stereo movies, which can help buyers to understand the diamond completely while making an on-line decision.
  • Custom white balance and color temperature option to show the correct color hue and saturation to the on-line buyer.
  • HDR tone mapped images to match human observation.
  • Various trajectories of the diamond movement. The diamond can be rocked face up in a movement of 8, or can be made to turn 360° or can be swung sideways to adjustable tilt angle.
  • Exporting video into most of the modern formats or jpeg series.
  • Pre-defined and custom presets for camera settings and video formats.
  • Loose as well as the mounted diamonds can be pictured.
  • For large jewelry pieces, Multilfocus HDR images helps match human observation.
  • OctoNus Stereo Viewer free version specially built to play diamond and jewelry movies.
  • Movie merge facility to compare 2 or more diamonds at one time.
  • Possibility to add “Watermark”, to move ahead in branding.

Immersion Glass

In this technology, Immersion Glass material is used. Immersion Glass is the material having nearly same Refractive Index value as Diamond and is solid at Room temperature and melts to liquid at around 100°C. We can heat Immersion Glass and Diamond in cubical mold so glass and diamond will become a single entity and reflections of inclusions will be removed. Due to absence of reflections, plotting on M-Box is more precise, very easy and can be done by even non-experienced operator.
