DIGITAL TRANSITIONS CULTURAL HERITAGE – COPY STANDS

DT Atom Entry Level Digitizer

Small. Light. FADGI 4 Ready. The DT Atom is a table top digitization platform that is completely modular to adapt to any material type. DTDCH products are completely modular and the DT Atom is no exception, with most of its adaptability owed to its removable table top.
We call the DT Atom the building block of digitization, simply swap out the standard reflective top for our transmissive top or Film Scanning Kit top allowing you to go from scanning loose material or books to film and more.

Book Scanning

Using the reflective standard table top with a book wedge allows bound material up to 14″ x 21″

  • The fastest document scanning at the highest resolutions
  • Book Wedge or Book Cradle available
  • Up to 6000 PPI digitization

Film & More

The DT Atom excels at scanning all types of transmissive material.

  • Our lights are removable and fit perfectly in the undercarriage to transform the Atom into a light box with ease.
  • Scan up to 800 slides per hour (with only one operator)
  • Used in tandem with Capture One CH software, this eases the conversion of black & white and color film

Loose Materials and Objects

Digitize loose materials or objects with ease.

  • The reflective top can digitize any material up to 26″ x 23″
  • Sweep Top allows shooting of standing 3D objects up to 17″ x 24″ x 24″
  • The motorized column allows for ultra-precise control and distance of the camera from the object

Precise Camera Control

Our custom built column is ultra-rigid and ultra-precise providing a nearly vibration free shooting platform.

Control distance and focus control with micro-step capability.

Total Height: 65.5”

Conservation Friendly Lighting

The DT Photon – Our trademarked LED Lighting system with color reproduction built specifically for Cultural Heritage applications. Designed specifically for use with the DT Atom but still flexible enough to be used on its own. The DT Photon also doubles as a transmissive light box by fitting perfectly in the undercarriage. Our lights are conservation friendly with no chance of harm to the original material. Made in the USA.

DT Element

More Than a Copy Stand

The DT Element is a complete digitization platform. The stand, camera, and column tightly integrate with our software for fast and easy preservation-grade digitization.

Standards Compliant

Our DT Element complies with FADGI 4-star, Metamorfoze Strict, ISO 19264 image quality, and JHOVE file format standards. The Library of Congress, The National Archives, and Getty along with these institutions use our systems.

Scan Anything

Nearly anything can be scanned with the DT Element. It’s equally at home scanning bound materials, manuscripts, flat artwork, maps, translucent materials such as film or glass plate negatives, as well as specimens. The camera can even be removed to capture installation artwork, in-situ art, architecture, and more.

Open Platform

While our camera and software offer simplicity, quality, and throughput, the Element accepts any camera. You can purchase an Element on one budget cycle and our camera on the next, or upgrade the camera anytime.

Solid, Precise, and Perfectly Aligned

The bench is made in the USA to 0.005” tolerances from aerospace grade aluminum. The DT AutoColumn precisely positions the camera within two-hundredths of an inch.

Help at Every Step

We treat our valued customers as partners, and our highly trained staff are ready to meet your individual institution’s needs. Every system includes on-site training, a warranty that doesn’t require a service contract, and unlimited support. If you’re starting or revamping a digitization program, see our program planning guide and reach out; we’re glad to help!

DT Versa

More Than a Copy Stand

The DT Versa is a complete digitization platform. The stand, camera, and column seamlessly integrate with our software for fast and easy preservation-grade digitization. The Versa allows digitization with or without glass contact.

Conservation-Friendly

With the Versa hard top in place, all scanning is done 100% contact-free. Removing that hard top reveals a conservation-friendly glass top with a user-settable maximum and with such precise control of the object that the operator can raise the object to lightly kiss the glass.

Scan Anything

Nearly anything can be scanned with the DT Versa. Bound materials are its raison d’être, but it’s equally at home scanning manuscripts, flat artwork, maps, translucent materials such as film or glass plate negatives, as well as specimens.

Standards Compliant

Our DT Versa complies with FADGI 4-star, Metamorfoze Strict, ISO 19264 image quality, and JHOVE file format standards. The Library of Congress, The National Archives, and Getty along with these institutions use our systems.
