GCAL and V360 Open ‘Studio 360’ in New York
New York City, July 19, 2022
GCAL (Gem Certification & Assurance Lab), in partnership with V360 Technetronics LLP, announced the opening of a new dedicated scanning service center – Studio 360, located in the GCAL laboratory on the 27th floor of 580 Fifth Avenue, New York City.
With state-of-the-art technology, V360 has been a global leader in creating superior quality 360° video photography of loose diamonds, colored gemstones, and finished jewelry. Now the same high-quality and cutting-edge technology service will be managed and operated in New York by GCAL.
According to Angelo Palmieri, GCAL COO and partner: “We are the logical partner to be selected by V360 because we were an early adaptor of this outstanding video and photographic technology. Our team of exceptionally talented technicians have become remarkably proficient, surpassing even our own expectations for video quality. And we continue to provide this service to all retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers certifying their diamonds, gemstones and finished jewelry with the GCAL laboratory.”
“Timing is perfect,” continued Angelo, “with the impact of the 8X® diamond cut grade on the industry. 8X certification is a visual, scientific and accurate demonstration of a diamond’s brilliance, fire, scintillation and beauty. The 8X digital certificates, featuring the 360° video, play a critical role in retail sales success.”
While sharing his thoughts about the collaboration, Vasudev Ankoliya, Vision 360 CEO and founder said: “GCAL is one of the pioneers and most trusted brands in New York. It is their high standard and consistency that led us to have a partnership with them. Likewise, the association between both companies was possible because we believe in a similar ideology- where integrity and customer satisfaction is foremost.”
