MATIS helps you access hidden
information in art.
MATIS offers a user-friendly, certified multispectral camera coupled with an intuitive user interface for a robust pigment mapping, pigment identification and improved visualization of underdrawings in oil paintings.
With our improved and targeted illumination-induced technology, our camera is an intuitive tool to assist art experts in their daily authentication assessment, increasing efficiency without hiring costly third-party experts or engineers.
Our multispectral camera reveals underdrawings and identifies pigments, providing access to art’s unique fingerprint.
MATIS illumination from ultraviolet to infrared gives you access to information beneath the surface paint layers, helps you visualize erased signatures and identify pigments.
The MATIS technology solution is unique: built at Centre Suisse d’Electronique et de Microtechnique (CSEM) our illumination-induced multispectral camera is linked with advanced photonics algorithms, end-to-end encryption for secured data storage and a robust machine learning approach.
We focus on historical pigments. Our comparison procedure is accurate and quick and provide a suggestion of identification for accurate interpretation.
We extract the spectral signature of the images material from the carefully-chosen 13 illuminations. Our robust algorithm gives you accurate mapping and pigment identification suggestion.
Based on physical models of mater-light interactions, we give you access to underdrawings visualization in an intuitive and clear way.
You only have to choose the subscription that best serves your specific needs. Our promise is to deliver you instantaneous results that are accessible to interpret. Through the subscription, you get access to the camera and our proprietary software for image visualizations and analysis. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
MATIS, part of the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM) post-doc for industry program, has created a solution that supports art experts who authenticate paintings. MATIS develops an easy-to-use multispectral camera and an image-processing algorithm based on CSEM built expertise and technologies. MATIS’s innovation allows a faster and easier interpretation of the hidden information from painting than existing methods.
Marie Didier, PhD
Marie has a background in Art and Science. She has been developing and using innovative technologies to characterize fragile samples either in art (as an Imaging Fellow at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC) or in biology (PhD in Neurophotonics from EPFL). Marie has experience in fundamental research in non-invasive Optics, image processing and art-driven imaging technologies. Passionate about art and science Marie is an excellent communicator and naturally thrive in an interdisciplinary environment.
