Join DTDCH for the latest in high end digital imaging at booth: #919 / 921
Our DTDCH team will be at SAA! Besides promoting FADGI 4 Star image quality, we’ll have the following products on display:
The annual meeting of the Society of American Archivists, held in late summer in different cities throughout the country. It includes a wide array of informative education sessions, pre-conference workshops, networking opportunities, special events, exhibits, and tours of local repositories.
Why We Attend
Cultural Heritage Shows are our favorite aspect of being part of this vibrant and passionate community. They’re a great opportunity to meet with our clients and share meaningful dialogue with future clients. The needs of the Cultural Heritage community are constantly evolving and many of our new products, and improvements to existing products, come from feedback we receive at such shows. So we hope that, if you’re attending SAA, you will stop by our booth, not just to see our solutions, but to share with us your perspective on where preservation digitization should be headed. We are there just as much to learn from you as to have you learn about us.
Why You Should Attend
- Bring back fresh ideas and new knowledge to benefit all of your colleagues;
- Learn about cutting-edge techniques, tools and resources for digital imaging at the DTDCH booth in the Exhibit Hall;
- Enhance your professional development by attending a pre-conference course;
- Become a better advocate for archives;
- Network with fellow archivists, who may share new ideas you can implement at your institution or in your classroom; and
- Promote your institution’s profile in the archives community!

Mini-Theater: Film Scanning using a Camera; Challenges and Solutions (Presented by Digital Transitions)
Join Us Thursday, July 27 – 6:00pm – 6:30pm
Much of our shared cultural heritage is held in film collections, a material type that poses obvious challenges to balancing access and preservation. For years the only option for digitizing film was legacy film scanners. These are painfully slow, often require conservation-unfriendly handling. They are also falling into technological obscurity which creates issues with OS/driver support and repairs. Scanning film with a camera promises better image quality, much faster throughput and non-contact handling, but it also poses many challenges. During this presentation, we will review the various challenges to scanning film with a camera such as alignment, vibration, focus drift, lens quality, illumination spectrum, negative inversion, and batch handling along with solutions to these challenges.

This webinar is co-presented together by Lyrasis and DTDCH.
Efficiency is about getting more for less. And while there is single method to digitize efficiently, this session, led by new LYRASIS partner, Digital Transitions Division of Cultural Heritage, will provide an overview on six different methods to increase your efficiencies. The session will cover Measurement, Standards, Investment and Collaboration. Examples of how other Digital Transition library clients are handling issues and how results were realized will be discussed. If you are considering digitization and/or necessary hardware investment, consider joining this session. Our new partnership with Digital Transitions provides discounts to LYRASIS members.
Your hosts: Doug Peterson is a Product Manager and Technical Specialist at Digital Transitions Division of Cultural Heritage. He teaches a variety of courses on Capture One, and is instrumental in the rigorous testing process on all new medium format digital hardware and software coming to market. Doug graduated from Ohio University with a BS in Commercial Photography in 2007, and has a continuing passion for photography as well as the gear that enables others to realize their vision.
This session will be co-presented by Katy Klettlinger, Mid-Atlantic and Great Lakes Outreach Librarian for Lyrasis.

The iXG is the result of years of R+D, experience with the DT RCam and feedback from the cultural heritage community. We believe it is the highest quality, most durable, fastest to use camera for Cultural Heritage digitization of both reflective and transmissive materials.
In this webinar we will cover the philosophy of its design, detail its technical capabilities, demonstrate its use in a workflow alongside Capture One CH our new DT AutoColumn. Features to be demonstrated include AutoPPI, hyper accurate Autofocus, film scanning, book scanning, and multi-object automatic multi-crop.
The iXG was also built to be a highly extensible system that can have significant features added via firmware update. During the webinar we will be asking for your input on which features you would most like to see added in the coming months.

Digital Transitions invites any and all interested in high resolution imaging and digitization to join us in Los Angeles on August 17th, 2017 for our an Open Studio day featuring workshops and the latest in 100 megapixel imaging. Drop by our California studio where we’ll encourage you to test drive the latest equipment, specifically the new iXG Camera System, DT Atom Copy Stand, and industry standard software Capture One CH.
Stitching Workshop – 2PM
Stitching is process of shooting image tiles of an object and then combining those image tiles in post production to generate a cohesive high resolution digital reproduction of said object that would not be possible with a single image capture. Join us for a hands on session as we walk you through various stitching scenarios and how to successfully create one from start to finish.
Film Scanning Workshop – 3:30PM
Film scanning and other transmissive digitization is especially demanding. Cultural Heritage institutions often have collections that include common transmissive photographic media such as 35mm slide film, microfilm, and strip film, but also more esoteric transmissive material like glass plate negatives, nitrate films, lantern slides, medical x-rays, hand cut film, and large format film. Digitizing such collections requires a solution that delivers conservation handling, preservation image quality, production speed, and extensive flexibility. Join us for this hands on session as we dissect all parts of capturing film and digitizing at 100+ megapixel.
We encourage you to bring materials to digitize. RSVP below to let us know you intend to drop by.
The DT Atom
Small. Light. FADGI 4 Ready. The DT Atom is a table top digitization platform that is completely modular to adapt to any material type. DTDCH product’s are completely modular and the DT Atom is no exception, with most of its adaptability owed to its removable table top. We call the DT Atom the building block of digitization, simply swap out the standard reflective top for our transmissive top or Film Scanning Kit top allowing you to go from scanning loose material or books to film and more.
EXPERIENCE THE CAPTURE ONE CH WORKFLOW SOFTWARE
Capture One Cultural Heritage perfectly integrates with the DT Atom to take advantage of tools like Auto Crop, Auto Rotate, and Full L*A*B* Readout Support.
- AutoCrop / Auto Rotate Tool
- Negative Film Reproduction Tool
- L*A*B* Color Readout

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, 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.
