We are proud to invest in ARTMYN, a pioneer in art-scanning technology, revolutionizing how art is promoted, experienced and secured. This co-lead investment of $4 million will finance the expanded distribution of ARTMYN’s 5D scanners, delivering increased value to auction houses who are exclusively on the Invaluable marketplace. Our goal is to help our auction house partners enrich every stage of the sale cycle.
ARTMYN scans artworks and captures tens of thousands of photographs with different light sources and spectrums, now including infrared lights. The process generates a 5D interactive file and a short immersive video containing more than 1.5 billion pixels — offering auction houses, consignors and buyers unparalleled views and feelings of texture for each scanned artwork. This groundbreaking technology addresses two critical areas in the online market: transparency, and buyer confidence.
We are pleased to offer our auction houses exclusive access to a powerful tool to help win consignments, drive sales, and vastly improve the experience of buying art online.
