Outsource Archive Digitisation

Outsource digitisation offers a great solution for the management of digitation projects. It can help remove problems such as funding the purchase of new equipment plus the user training required to ensure the equipment is used correctly to achieve the best results.

Our inhouse digitisation suite is equipped to handle a variety of media from bound volumes, books, and manuscripts to photographs, large format and microfilm/fiche. Carefully handled and processed, we ensure your items are digitised in the highest quality possible whilst respecting their age and condition.

Book and Bound Volume Scanning;

Copying or scanning from books is a process which requires great care throughout the capturing process. Book pages and spines are extremely delicate with excess handling or pressure causing damage which over time can make them fragile and useable.

With a complete digitisation suite of the latest scanning solutions, we choose the most appropriate solution to carefully scan your materials and then enhance with options including OCR, Indexing and restoration. Easily share, store or access your data.
