Hyphen Still Life (HSL) is a complete, one-stop product photography management solution that allows business to produce stunning images and retain control over their creations.

HSL consists of management console and production software built around a special 360 degree photography set. This gives you full control over the capture and automated optimisation of the images prior to being added to our to our Chalco.net Product Content Management (PCM) solution which has an integrated DAM & PIM in a single portal. The solution allows you to manage the creation, flow, adaptation and delivery of any image you wish to create to any of your various marketing and communication channels that you need to boost your sales.

Using HSL is a quick and easy process:

  • Create your product entry – There are two ways to do this; either manually or by scanning a barcode on the product.
  • Photograph your product – Verifies, approves and sends your shots to your DAM system. This will then implement the post-production services that allow you to manage the creation and bespoke adaptation of the images and provide the 360-degree and 24 processed still life images, or just 3 or 4 specific shots.
  • Manage your product with Chalco.net –  The system ensures that the product assets can be enriched with the latest product information in an automatic or a manual method, depending on your preference.
  • Deliver product information and image to Channel – Customisable workflows allow you to manage this step to both your e-commerce and other digital channels.
  • Modular Solutions – Hyphen provides additional modular solutions that can be integrated into your workflow to help provide shooting lists, image approval workflows and automated file management.
