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.
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.
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.
Join us during either session on August 10th at 10:30am or 3:00pm. RSVP below and let us know which time you are attending.
