Digital Transitions invites any and all interested in high resolution imaging and digitization to join us in New York on August 24th AND August 25th, 2017 for our an Open Studio day
Digital Transitions invites any and all interested in high resolution imaging and digitization to join us in New York on August 24th AND August 25th, 2017 for our an Open Studio day featuring workshops and the latest in 100 megapixel imaging. We’re doing two days so everyone get’s a chance to come. Drop by our New York 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.
Stop by anytime from 10AM until 5PM to shoot the latest cameras or just to chat and ask questions. Everyone is welcome!
During the afternoon on both days we will be hosting an imaging workshop on High Resolution Image Stitching.
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.
We encourage you to bring materials to digitize. RSVP below to let us know you intend to drop by.
The Latest Technology
We’ll have the latest in high resolution digital imaging, including:

Join us on September 20th and 21st at the Smithsonian for exclusive training and overview of high resolution digitization for Cultural Heritage applications.
This event is for Smithsonian staff and personnel only.
Training will include a mixture of lecture and hands-on practice. Everyone who satisfactorily completes the training will receive a certificate upon completion.
Please join us both days to get up to speed on cutting edge methods and gear and learn about the following topics:
Maximizing Image Quality
Capture One CH
LCC (Lens Cast Calibration)
Transmissive Material Handling
You will also have the opportunity to learn, train, and use the following products:

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.)
Course Prerequisite 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.
