Opportunities at Arius Technology

Being an industry-leader in laser-based optical scanning for the digitization of art is pretty exciting! So far, we’ve collaborated with world-class museums, digitized priceless masterpieces (by the likes of Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet), shipped our technology around the world and have even bigger projects in the pipeline.

Exciting Things Happen When Art Meets Technology

Arius Technology is a fast-moving startup, developing proprietary laser-based optical scanning systems for three-dimensional digitization of art. Under our Verus Art® brand, Arius works directly with museums on conservation projects, and to produce stunningly beautiful, elevated print re-creations of paintings, featuring precise replication of the color, texture and relief of an artist’s original brushstrokes.

Under a new brand, Arius will also be working with contemporary artists to explore creative opportunities with this new digitization and elevated print medium.
