NEDCC Offers a Wide Range of Imaging Services, Including:
NEDCC’s imaging specialists are experienced in the careful handling of rare and fragile cultural heritage materials, and the Center’s sophisticated digitization systems employ high resolution camera systems, using flash lighting to minimize total light exposure. NEDCC offers fine ink-jet reproduction printing on acid- and lignin-free papers using pigmented inks to produce long-lasting prints suitable for use as archival surrogates or exhibition quality reproductions.
NEDCC has developed an oversized imaging studio capable of imaging very large items using a custom-designed X Y positioning platform, special flat field optics, and a precision camera system. Multiple images are captured with flash lighting and reassembled using image-stitching techniques to create image files of the highest resolution and quality.
NEDCC has expanded its film reformatting studio to handle a broader range of delicate photographic material and unusual formats. NEDCC can digitize long-roll, wide-format black and white film, and all common amateur and professional film sizes from APS to 4"x5" in color negative, color transparency, and black and white. Using specialized equipment, we can also work with lantern slides, glass plates, nitrate negatives, and virtually any non-standard film format.
NEDCC digitizes X-Ray film using a specialized laser scanning system capable of scanning film up to 14" X 17." NEDCC's X-ray scanning software includes measurement tools, annotation fields, false color rendition views and a detailed magnification viewer.
Are you limited in staff and time for large film reformatting projects? Are you frustrated by the snail's pace of your flatbed scanner? Are you nervous about working with your nitrate negatives? Are you concerned about the extra cost of in-house digitization? (Remember, DIY scanning is not always a cost saver when working with large collections or unique materials.) NEDCC has the staffing and workflow systems in place to handle large projects, and years of experience in careful handling of rare and fragile film.
