ARCHIVAL QUALITY IMAGE CAPTURE
The final products are as diverse as the collections we scan—searchable
online databases, acid-free prints, bound books or off-site ANSI vault data storage.
Regardless of the destination, many projects begin with high-quality digitization.
Start with virtually any original
Many images require extra care
- Documents and drawings up to J-size
- Bound, disbound and rare books
- 16mm/35mm roll film and 105mm microfiche
- Photographic prints, slides, negatives and newspapers
Post-scan operations can include cropping, deskewing, dithering, despeckling,
manual clean up, image zoning, OCR and the assignment of metadata for indexing.
Certain post-scan adjustments applicable to all images can be automated. Applying
global corrections reduces processing time, allowing faster delivery and cost savings.
