The Highest Quality Scanners for Décor, Industrial Print, PBR, and Cultural Heritage

METIS Technology


Passion for Innovation

With its roots stemming from the imaging arm of the European Space Agency, METIS prides itself with highly innovative products and unique capabilities, with customers ranging from national libraries, archives, and cartographic institutes, to the leaders in the decor industry with installations around the globe.

METIS for Décor Industry

METIS scanners are the ultimate solution for the decor industry. Their unique technology has a wide variety of applications for a number of different market sectors – from flooring, ceramics and natural stone, wallpapers, textiles, to engraving cylinders and press plates, and even CAD and 3D visualization – METIS does it all!

METIS for Cultural Heritage

A leader in the cultural heritage market, METIS has a reputation for outstanding image quality and performance. With easy-to-use software and unrivaled reliability, METIS scanners are a perfect fit for any library, archive, museum, university, art gallery, cartographic institute, restoration firm, or even private collections.



The DRS 2020 DCS, DRS 1622 DCS and DRS 1220 DCS introduce new important and unique features:

An innovative digital camera with 16K imaging sensor that allows the extension of native optical resolution up to 1600 PPI (software ad­justable from 100 to 3200 PPI).

A new and improved DC Synchrolight lighting system updated to the latest LED technology with increased lighting power and color rendering. The DC Synchrolight (Dynamically Controlled Synchronized Light) is a patent protected METIS technology: 4 light sources (Standard) or 8 light sources (Plus).

METIS DC Synchrolight gives the ability to control and change dynamically, instantly and automatically the angle and intensity of the light emitted by the various light sources in the scanning area, making it possible to optimize the result of the digitization, depending on the type and nature of the originals.


All METIS scanners have the revolutionary and distinctive capability of calculating 3D data directly from 2D color data. This exclusive feature, combined with its unique capability of obtaining a Glossiness map, confirms METIS as the most innovative and technologically advanced scanner manufacturer in the world.

METIS scanners are the only devices in the market capable of providing suitable 3D data for the most demanding Decor applications – even with perfect in-register results to the 2D captured color information.

Through the generation of high-resolution 3D data directly from 2D color information, METIS ensures that all color and texture of a captured object is always in perfect register.

METIS 3D data is suitable for applications such as cylinder/press-plate engraving, ceramic tile embossing and digital printing with embossing effects!


Thanks to the patented METIS DC SynchroLight technology, all METIS DRS and DCS scanners have the unique ability to capture multiple light settings at once. The resulting “SuperScan” can then be re-mixed using different light schematics in real-time. Scan results can be ‘styled’ post-process, without having to re-scan the original, saving valuable time and money. Your design possibilities are limitless!
