Digitisation Frequently Asked Questions

Our specialised scanning equipment captures the entire page and sophisticated software provides curvature correction on all pages. We can capture single page or double-page spreads, creating output formats in TIFF, JPEG (JPEG2000), PDF (PDFA), or any other industry-standard image format you may require. We can also create further surrogate files, such as cropping each individual image to a single file and transcribing references from these images, such as names, places and dates.

All files are captured by our highly trained digitisation technicians using overhead, daylight balanced, non-heat producing lighting before undergoing a formal quality assurance checking procedure. The final step in the process is the delivery of your electronic files by hard drive.

Capture the data within your Photograph Albums & Scrapbooks

Digitisation places your photograph albums and scrapbooks in the perfect format to capture the valuable data contained within them, offering great potential for system integration and online access and discovery.

Capture the data within your collection with handwritten transcription, identifying any handwritten or cursive script within images and converting this to searchable and machine readable textual metadata through a process of scanning. Using bespoke transcription validation software we can guarantee highly accurate results, carrying out any preprocessing measures required and outputting to any format.
