Image Capture

Newspaper Stack

Excellent Image Quality:  the foundation of any quality digital image archive.

You may have historic, rare, fragile materials.  You need to digitally preserve those materials.   But you worry that too much handling will further damage the materials and lead to bad digital imaging.

Our production process ensures complete image data capture on the first scan. We evaluate the condition of each object to determine the best capture method.  Throughout the imaging process, we monitor your materials to ensure their structural integrity.

Equipment​

NDPS has five different types of scanners. Each scanner model has specific capabilities that allow us to most carefully and efficiently capture many different types and/or conditions of materials.  Equipment manufacturers we use include Book2Net, Canon, Epson, Image Access, and Kodak and we have experienced operators who understand how to use them and respect your collection.  

Bound Book Scanners:  We use scanners with a book cradle that lets the binding rest below the scanning plane to reduce stress on the binding. Pages can lay flat for the best image capture. 

Disbound/Loose Leaf Scanners:  Depending on your needs and the condition of the materials, we can use flatbed scanners or high-speed rotary scanners. Talk with us to determine your best option.

 

Production Environment 

We are located in an office suite in an office building.  Our workspace is conducive to keeping a clean, environmentally controlled, secure, and efficient working environment. Your materials are safe, and we can produce images efficiently, to meet your needs.

Depending on each items' condition, we may be able to utilize one of our high-speed rotary scanners to reduce your scanning costs while maintaining our high-quality image standards.
