We offer our experience and experise with the conception and production of historical sources editions as a service to libraries, archives and museums.
Illuminated manuscripts are very beautiful and precious. The digitalisation of those treasures is a big challenge and requires special care and handling. Gold should look like gold, shine and not appear blackish or brownish. To receive that effect we use a sophisticated lighting management. High-end exposure technique, experience and carefulness are keys for a successful digitalisation of illuminated works.
24,000 books, 4 million pages, 8 month. Those three numbers were the key data of the advertised project by the German National Library in 2013. Addionaly the service provider had to offer a system in which the project progress could be monitored, digital images viewed and reclamations made.
