By using the Impasto Art smart phone app you can easily show art images in super quality on a TV screen. Depending on the size of the TV screen and original work, a painting or drawing can often be shown in the same size as the original. Together with the Full-HD and Ultra-HD resolutions of modern TV sets, this allows for an unprecedented viewing experience. Anybody can now enjoy a Van Gogh, Cézanne or Rembrandt in superb quality in the kitchen, living room or office.

Impasto’s service already provides easy access to 150.000 high-resolution images of works of art. In the next half year Impasto will add more art collections. The images are sourced directly from leading museums around the world, which have been digitizing their collections  using the latest technologies for capturing colour depth and image resolution (of up to 1200 pixels per inch of the original).

The Impasto Art smart phone application can be downloaded in the Apple App Store and works in combination with Google Chromecast or Apple Airplay to stream images to a TV screen.
