On Tuesday, March 12, OU Libraries is hosting a digitization equipment demonstration / open house; the vendor is DT Cultural Heritage, a division of Digital Transitions, https://dtculturalheritage.com/. We’d like to get the word out to a wide variety of organizations that are or might be interested in cultural heritage digitization.
They plan to bring, set up, and demonstrate the DT Atom with film scanning kit, book cradle, and iXG 100MPx camera.
Also, I believe their Capture One software will be part of the demonstration. OU Libraries does not have any of this equipment; I myself am looking forward to the opportunity to see this setup in action and ask questions.
We’re excited to be able to host the demonstration / open house in our special collections area on the fifth floor of Bizzell library on OU’s Norman campus. We’ll also give tours of our own digitization lab during the day, if that’s of interest. Here are the details for the day.
