Innovators in the Intersection of Art, Technology, and Data
Offering the most advanced scanning services available for the examination, conservation, documentation, replication, and visualization of art. Our Art Digital Master File can also be tokenized in the blockchain, enabling the direct linking of NFTs to physical art objects. We are pioneering the possibility of digitization of physical art.
Art Digital Master Files are high-fidelity digital benchmarks, assisting the preservation of artworks for future generations, even in the face of unforeseen damage and natural degradation.
Our electronic digital art file is the ultra-high-resolution link between the physical and digital art worlds. We offer the most advanced scanning services available for the examination, conservation, documentation, and reproduction.
Arius can provide digital fingerprints of painting surfaces, helping combat art fraud by aiding detection of forgeries and underpinning provenance.
Conservators can utilize ultra-high-fidelity scan data, which captures details as fine as 1/10 of a human hair. Even the earliest signs of deterioration can be detected without touching the painting surface.
Textured Elevated Printing
Our textured elevated prints offer the art world endless opportunities from helping artists reach wider audiences, to helping museums create tactile exhibitions that can leave museum walls, to revenue opportunities.
Where Art Meets Technology
With the foundations of our technology rooted in the forensic analysis of the Mona Lisa, Arius takes pride in developing the world’s most sophisticated optics-based art capture technology. Engineered and built in Vancouver, our ultra-high-resolution data capture platform accurately measures the surface geometry and colour of paintings. Our electronic digital art file is the ultra-high-resolution link between the physical and digital art worlds. We offer the most advanced scanning services available for the examination, conservation, documentation, reproduction, and visualization of art. This data can also be tokenized in the blockchain, enabling the direct linking of NFTs to physical art objects. We’re opening the possibility of digital trade in physical art.

Our Technology was Originally Developed for a Forensic Analysis of the Mona Lisa
Originally developed for the forensic analysis of the Mona Lisa, we have developed this conservation-quality imaging technology with leading museums, including Tate and The National Gallery of Canada, to advance the value and capability of the system for art collectors around the world.
We captured the surface detail to 10 microns – 1/10th of a human hair.
Hundreds of millions of data points scanned from the painting’s surface,
Feedback from Our Collaborators
“Arius has the richest reprographic technology on the planet today.”
"Canon technology has earned industry recognition for its outstanding colour accuracy and print quality. Merging that with Arius’ ultra-high-resolution art capture technology opens new opportunities for the creative community.”
“With perfect detail of a painting’s surface and condition, Arius brings acompletely new level of knowledge and understanding.”
