    Lots of buzz about A-TAC camo at SHOT

    It looks great in person, not to mention it has the backing of a lot of folks in the industry + generating a ton of buzz. (Looks like multicam has some competition)

    From the website:

    A-TACS® was developed by Digtal Concealment Systems, (DCS) to answer the call for better and more effective camouflage system integration for duty personnel in any service branch from military to law enforcement. A-TACS® is designed as a universal pattern for a wide range of operational environments with additional supporting color and design variants to follow.

    Many of the modern digital camouflage patterns currently in use by the tactical community have flaws. The square pixels used to create the distortion effect do not replicate the shapes, forms and shadows of the environment they are deployed in-especially when viewed through optics. The ninety-degree angles and limited use of natural colors can in many cases, make detection easier.

    Additionally, the "visual noise" in these same patterns tends to make them close-up into a solid color, producing a “blobbing” effect when viewed from a distance. A-TACS® addresses and improves these critical issues in three ways.
    1. - Replace un-natural square pixels with organic pixels. Utilizing our patented process, we created a palette of natural colors digitally sampled from real-world elements in carefully controlled lighting. The pattern is then created using a mathematical algorithm that writes “organically-shaped” pixels using the specific color information given. The resulting pattern while still digital, is far more organic in appearance.
    2.- Use small patterns to create larger more distinct shapes designed to work at a distance. Small shapes create larger shapes and larger shapes are organized into a distinct pattern with no horizontal or vertical orientation. This unique "pattern within a pattern" concept allows A-TACS® to effectively break the human outline at great distances thereby, minimizing the "blobbing" effect of other patterns when viewed from a distance.
    3.- More effective use of color-range produces a better concealment system. A-TACS® is created using a far greater range of inter-mingled natural colors than was previously possible. The overall base color for the cast is a neutral tan which is designed for use in open, rocky or arid environments.
    Furthermore, the abstract and intricate nature of this pattern gives it a unique "fingerprint" which is not only adaptable to various service branches, but also makes it difficult to copy.

    What the hell is an "organic-pixel?" ???

    LOL, yeah "organic", although I really like this camo pattern, it sounds like these guys are talking out of their pooper shoot. It seems like just yesterday the Corps just switched over to digital camo, doubt it they will be changing that any time soon. Although a lot of those things said about digital camo is true, they failed to mention the merits of it. The whole point of the pixelation in digital camo is to distort enemy night vision devices used in low light. Most NVGs produce pixelated images, thats why digital camo when seen through NVG can be verry efective. ilbeit, most of our op-for over in the mid-east are limited in tech and stick to the basics, so its basically worthless over there since they dont use a lot of NVG stuff. Any ways thats basically the whole point of digital camo, at least what I was tought going through the Corps.
