More Than a Copy Stand

The DT Versa is a complete digitization platform. The stand, camera, and column tightly integrate with our software for fast and easy preservation-grade digitization. The Versa allows digitization with or without glass contact. 


With the Versa hard top in place, all scanning is done 100% contact free. Removing that hard top reveals a conservation-friendly glass top with a user-settable maximum and such precise control of the object that the operator can raise the object to lightly kiss the glass.

Scan Anything

Nearly anything can be scanned with the DT Versa. Bound materials are its raison d’être but its equally at home scanning manuscripts, flat artwork, maps, transmissive materials such as film or glass plate negatives, or even specimins.

Standards Compliant

Need to comply with FADGI 4-star, Metamorfoze Strict, or ISO 19264 image quality or JHOVE file format standards? So does the Library of Congress, National Archives, and Getty; they and all of these institutions use our systems.

Open Platform

While our camera and software offers simplicity, quality, and throughput the Versa accepts any camera. You can purchase a Versa on a budget cycle and camera on the next, or upgrade the camera anytime.

Solid, Precise, and Perfectly Aligned

The bench is made in the USA to 0.005” tolerances from aerospace grade aluminum. The DT AutoColumn positions the camera with two hundreths of an inch precision. The Phase One iXG focus movement is measured in microns.

Help at Every Step

We partner with the institutions that invest in our systems. Every system includes on-site training, a warranty that doesn’t require a service contract, and unlimited support. If you’re starting or revamping a digitization program see our program planning guide and reach out; we’re glad to help!
