Event description

Description

Members of Australia's cultural heritage community are invited to join Specular and techinal staff from Phase One’s Cultural Heritage division to explore the current state of technology for digital preservation and reproduction.

In particular this is an opportunity to discuss whether current camera systems are an efficient and meaningful alternative to legacy scanning equipment such as Creo scanners.

As Creo and other scanners have reached the end of their effective serviceable life, it is imperative that Australian institutions have alternative imaging technology that advances the state of archive and sample reproduction in the future.


Attendees will be strongly encouraged to contribute to discussions around the following topics:

  • Current standards achieved by reproduction cameras
  • Challenges of transparency reproduction
  • Methods for reproducing 3D samples
  • The state of Australian standards for reproduction and international trends
  • The opportunity for greater automation and workflow improvements
  • Considerations for lighting when using high resolution cameras for reproduction

During the forum there will also be a demonstration of the Phase One iXG Camera System as a high speed and high resolution alternative to scanners and multi-shot cameras for flat works, film scanning, and items such as botanical samples.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet face-to-face with other members of Australia’s Cultural Heritage community, as well as technical staff from Phase One and Specular.
