This two-day course is an intensive training program tailored to cultural heritage workflows. It focuses on both Capture One software and professional imaging hardware. We will cover proper configuration, setup, workflow and troubleshooting techniques for Phase One backs, computers and DTDCH Capture Solutions. Capture One teaching focuses on workflow efficiency and advanced tools. At the completion of this course, attendees will be given a test to achieve certification status. The Digital Transitions Division of Cultural Heritage (DTDCH) and Phase One have created an intensive training program specialized for cultural heritage institutions: Phase One Cultural Heritage Specialist.
Duration: Two days of hardware and software training including hands-on practice
Price: $499.00 (includes 90-day free trial of Capture One CH 9, sent upon completion of the in-person training.
Attendees are required to complete the Phase One Pre-Course prior to the in-person training. The Pre-Course covers many of the basics on Capture One 9 that we will build on during the training. There are 5 courses in total and each course is a mixture of articles and video, and includes 1-2 short quizzes on the material. Our best estimate is that completing the required material should take about 5 hours perhaps much less if you already have a good understanding of the material. We suggest breaking it up over a few days.

For several years now we’ve invited our customers, our vendors, and our employees to join us in celebrating our anniversary as a company. It is our customers who make our business possible, and it’s our pleasure to thank them by hosting the best PhotoPlus Expo party in New York. We raffle off (for free) thousands of dollars of gear, we create a signature DT cocktail-of-the-year, and we create an environment where we can relax and enjoy the company of our customers in a less formal setting.
Details are still being finalized. For now, save the evening of 10/19/2016.

Every year we gather our clients from museums, libraries, archives, universities, service bureaus, and other institutions, for a round table on a topic of importance to the Cultural Heritage digitization community. It’s a great opportunity to connect with clients, get their feedback on what we’ve been working on, hear the lessons they’ve learned and workflows they’ve innovated.
We’re still finalizing the agenda, speakers, and exact start-and-end times for this year’s DCH Round Table. For now, save the morning and afternoon of 10/20/2016. If you have ideas for topics or speakers please email email@example.com; we’d love to hear what’s on your mind.
