Vitrine Analytics bridges the gap between Web Analytics and Point-of-Sale Data

BUSINESS ANALYTICS FOR YOUR ART COLLECTION

Imagine a vitrine cabinet that knows what is inside it. The item’s Fragility. Popularity. Significance.

Imagine a vitrine that can adapt in real-time to environmental changes to ensure the object is never over-exposed to light.

ArtRatio display vitrines offer a patent-pending solution based on smart glass, sensor-driven electronics and cloud-based analytics to balance the exhibition of works of art with their conservation. 

Our contextual data analytics system proactively reduces risk and enhances the visibility of art, protecting its condition and value for future generations.

LIGHT

The smart glass facade controls UV, visible and infrared entering the vitrine cabinet. We also monitor incident light and light exposure, crucial for textiles, works on paper and fugitive pigments.

Room Heating Icon

TEMPERATURE

Controlling light reduces temperature gradients, fluctuations and photochemical damage on composite objects with differing coefficients of thermal expansion (source: CIE 157).

 
Humidity Measurement Icon

HUMIDITY

Controlling the temperature reduces fluctuations in relative humidity (RH), reducing risk of embrittlement, mould or fungus on hygroscopic materials, such as wood, paper, ivory and parchment (source: CIE 157).

Lightning Strike Icon

STATIC

Careful maintenance of RH reduces the risk of static charge build-up on internal insulative surfaces and stops the lift-off of friable media, such as graphite, pastels and charcoal.

Recycle Icon

AIR QUALITY

Reducing electrostatic charge build-up can reduce the transfer of dust and pollutants, improving air quality (source BSI PAS 198).
