Hyper-detailed forensic imaging
The FACT Secured Device captures ultra-high-resolution scans in seconds, compiling 100,000 unique images of the piece from various angles to create a single, inimitable digital fingerprint. Our patent-pending device is powered by white light interferometry, a contactless and nondestructive scanning methodology that merges multiple light sources to create a 3D image, which can be analyzed and measured with unmatched precision.
Each scan stores a complete topography surface profile of the piece, including the thickness, depth, and roughness of brush strokes. Scans are collected at a resolution of two microns, revealing details on the asset’s surface as minute as two microns, or 1/50 the diameter of a human hair.
Scans analyzed with advanced analytical software
The FACT Analytics Software instantaneously inspects each scan and compares it against any previous scans logged in the asset profile, analyzing surface features to confirm the asset is authentic. Further analysis identifies changes in condition, highlights defects and measures degradation. Leveraging 4D analysis allows FACT to catalogue advanced metrics over time – roughness, height, depth, wear – providing valuable insights for asset conservation.
Our analytics provide unique benefits for purpose driven condition reporting; highlighting any damage and tracking degradation, that occurred while a piece was loaned or transported. These analyses – which are powered by statistical and correlative analysis on the 3D imaging – are automatically compiled into detailed reports and stored directly in the asset’s blockchain record.
Immutable record of provenance
Each asset scan is added to a robust profile that also includes: provenance information, condition reports, travel history, and restoration activity. This reporting structure empowers the fast and secure transfer of documentation and ownership upon the sale of a piece, telling a complete story of the assets history and effectively serving as a due diligence process.
Each unique signature and profile is stored securely in the FACT Secured Database on the blockchain, which ensures that a collection’s data is immutable – thus protecting against forgery, insurance fraud, money laundering, and theft.
