The digital laboratory works with the large range of image formats and photographic techniques developed since the invention of the first photographic process. The digitized collection is large and diverse: positive and negative images, different media and formats (metal, glass, paper, plastic, etc.) and categories, both black and white and colour images.
The digitization methods are also differentiated and adapted to the requirements of each photographic processes.
A3 format flatbed scanners using linear CCD sensors and fluid mounting for ultra-high resolution, virtual drum non-contact scanners for photographic reproduction based on soft Ektachrome slide film, and black and white negatives are just a few of these solutions we adopt.
Thus, the digital laboratory has developed process cameras, based on 80 MP digital camera backs attached to the back of a camera and apochromatic digital lenses (based on a technology of light synchronized with an LED source of 5000K with no IR or UV emission and a colour rendering index [CRI] of 98). These highly specialized chains can process and reproduce even the most damaged of documents.
