« Pioneering 5D Technology to Preserve and Magnify Fine Art Collections”
From the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, and winner of a Google Focused Research Award, the startup ARTMYN has developed a new generation of scanners and algorithms that create unprecedented, 5D, interactive images – allowing you to touch artworks with your eyes. During the scanning of an artwork, gigabytes of data are captured using different light sources. The data, which consists of thousands of photographs, is then processed using sophisticated “homemade” algorithms. The final result provides an unprecedented emotional experience by bringing to life the artwork texture and composition on Screen. ARTMYN technology is touchscreen responsive, available online, and
has the capacity to:
- Provide a unique ultra-high 5D visualization interface – revealing the different textures and materiality at the surface of artworks
- Magnify artworks like never before – using the startup’s “Guided Tour Editor” which generates unparalleled educational and promotional movies
- Keep track of Fine Art Collections’ DNA over time – through “ADDA”, the first Automated Damage Detection Algorithm
During the scanning process, the data generated is absolutely unique to each individual artwork. By scanning an artwork before and after an event, such as an exhibition, “ADDA” will automatically compare the two sets of data and detect whether the artwork surface has been damaged, modified, or even if a forgery has been returned instead of the original.
