In a world of technology, we sell poetry
Because as well as putting our hearts into it, we value the content we offer, whatever the service. This becomes easy to understand when you know our history. Founded in 1996 as a company specialising in statistical consultancy, TEA has evolved over time and has added a 'special' area to this one, that of cultural heritage, in particular multispectral imaging for the study of documents.
How did this happen?
Statistics means collecting data, analysing them and transforming them into information. A digital image is nothing more than a set of numbers. By processing them with suitable statistical techniques, information that is invisible to the eye can be brought to light.
This is how, thanks to our research over the years, we have developed @MMIRA, hardware and software system for themultispectral acquisition and virtual restoration of damaged documents.
One thing leads to another! In addition to processing them, we have started to create digital collections and multimedia displays with the acquired images..
And since it is natural to think of diversifying the offer, in 2015 we started to imagine something new and discovered an evolving world in which so much can be done: that of accessibility.
This led us to create AIVES, a system for the multisensory enjoyment of works of art by everyone, including people with disabilities, such as the blind. And we are not going to stop there.
Ours is a story of technological evolution, but we have never stopped giving importance to the meaning and the intrinsic message that lies in our creations. Without poetry, there is no technology.
