Was the Amiga used to verify fine art?

I was watching BBC TV last week and caught a show about the Mona Lisa. One of the experts J.F Asmus spoke about doing some digital analysis in the late '80s
In one scene there is a photo that looked like an Amiga... Anyone know more?

Hmmm looking again, I am not convinced that is an Amiga. Looks like a standard PC keyboard...

That looks like a PC keyboard, not an Amiga one.

Sadly, DDNI, there are too many hints to refute this as an Amiga..

The distance between the Function Keys and the top of the keyboard device is way too short. For an A500 this is nearly half of the distance from the bottom to the top, as you look down onto it. The A1200 is a bit shorter in this respect, but if this was late 80s, then the A1200 would still be a few years away.

Also, the colour of the F keys, along with the outer keys (Return, Shift, Tab, 'A', etc) are much darker in relation to the Alpha keys on my Amigas, so, unless there were some differently-coloured keys produced, I think it looks to be a normal, boring PC keyboard.

However - it's a great spot. Well done for picking it up and posting it, as it would've been great to get a positive result. Always nice to see a miggy kicking about in TV programmes of old

It doesn't look chunky enough in the side profile to be an Amiga.
