The Digital Transitions Division of Cultural Heritage (DCH) was established to support the digitization programs of cultural heritage institutions, archives (municipal, private, and corporate), libraries, and private collectors as well as the imaging companies that serve these markets. Our vast and diverse experience in the cultural heritage community has enabled us to develop the finest digitization and scanning equipment as well as provide comprehensive service and support. The core ideology of the DCH is to share knowledge and experience, while remaining steadfast in this ever changing technological environment. We are dedicated to serve this industry long into the future and want our client experience to be one built on mutual trust and accountability.
In order to meet the industry’s requirements for digitizing collections, the Division of Cultural Heritage is focused on developing systems that are truly effective for books (rare and circulated), works of art, as well as photographic film. Our objective is to create the most reliable equipment that is ergonomic and will deliver the finest image quality. We work closely with you to design a total solution that will help optimize your tasks and realize the benefits of your digital investment. Our partnership approach will walk you through the process of selecting ideal hardware, integrating our systems into your workflow and training your staff, as well as providing all the support you need to keep your digitization program running smoothly.
Our experience in both designing imaging programs and working “in the trenches” for non-profit institutions gives us first-hand knowledge of the requirements and concerns facing cultural institutions. This provides the Division of Cultural Heritage with the necessary expertise to design the highest quality digitization solutions that are practical, and most importantly, always protecting the integrity of the materials. We understand the importance of delivering both pre and post consultation as part of our process and always put the needs of our clients first. Our distinguished technical support staff delivers comprehensive service and customized training tailored specifically to our cultural heritage clients.
