Cultural Heritage

METIS have been designing and producing scanners for the Cultural Heritage for many years now and have not only accumulated a lot of experience in this market but has also grown an undiscussed reputation especially in terms of image quality, performances, software and scanner usability but also for product reliability.

METIS scanners are today installed in the most prestigious libraries, archives and museums worldwide. METIS scanners can also be found in Universities, private collections, cartographic institutes, restauration institutes, etc.

METIS DRS DCS scanners provide the highest score when confronted with the FADGI or METAMORFOZE guidelines (those are quality digitization guidelines for Cultural Heritage applications drafted in US and Europe respectively); therefore, METIS DRS DCS scanners are sometime the only possible choice in particular applications where the highest possible image quality must be provided.

METIS DRS DCS scanners also produce extremely high geometrical accuracy, which is mandatory for professional cartographic applications.

Furthermore, METIS DRS DCS can also provide unique features that are not available in any other scanner as 3D, glossiness and the possibility to customize the visual appearance of the scanned subject. Despite some of these features are not normally requested in most common Cultural Heritage applications, nevertheless they become of increasing interest and are even mandatory in specific digitization tasks as for example:

  • Scanning coins, seals, copper plates, paintings (whenever the 3D-mensionality of the subject must be brought in the digitized image in order to provide a more complete visual representation of the original);
  • Whenever glossy or metallic parts are present (i.e. gold in a parchment) in order to provide the desired visual appearance and therefore minimize or maximize reflections and metallic appearance;
  • Scanning 3D information, aimed to study the original document or piece of art;
  • Scanning 3D information, aimed to reproduce the original in 3D and not only in color (i.e. a painting can today be copied including the embossing through digital printer with embossing capabilities).
