TECHNOLOGY

  • Scanning Technology

    Scanning Technology

    Using the scanning technology of a Pentax DSLR camera, artworks can be captured with outstanding accuracy. This type of scanning reduces the risk of damage to the original painting because it doesn’t need any additional light source. The advanced infrared photography system also makes it possible to see pentimento (revisions) or pictures hidden underneath a painting. This technology is used by museums and plays an indispensable role for academic research in revealing the process behind how a painting was created.

    3D Processing Technology

    StareReap generates 3D data calculated from a photograph taken by a DSLR camera. A unique 3D processing app is also available, which creates 3D shapes from 2D data without the need for taking a photo. This technology offers support to artists in realizing their original creativity.

Classic & Modern Art

StareReap uses digital technology to make reproductions of classic and modern art. Every last detail about the original is captured with remarkable accuracy, from the subtlety of the materials to the texture of the canvas and even cracks in the oil paints. Coming into contact with a previously unknown work of art improves our understanding and appreciation of culture. Art can also help bridge industrialized and emerging nations in keeping with the aims of the B4IG* initiative, as well as contribute to expanding STEAM fields education and solving problems of inequality.

*Business for Inclusive Growth (B4IG) B4IG is an initiative promoting diversity in the workplace and supply chain. Led by the global food corporation Danone and overseen by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, it was officially launched in 2019 with the sponsorship of the French government at the G7 summit in Biarritz, France. Attracting 34 corporations from around the world, Ricoh is the only Japanese member of the coalition.
