After their last successful Imaging Standards day at the Wellcome Trust in London on the 13th June, Genus, Zeutschel and now Inotec invite you to come along and learn more about the latest Imaging standards at The Library of Birmingham on November 30th 2023.
9:30am - November 30th at The Library of Birmingham
This will give you the opportunity to listen to the very latest standards and techniques in the areas of Digitisation and Quality Management from a Senior member of Zeutschel, Alexander Sander.
Accompanying Alexander by live link from Germany will be Volker Jansen, who worked as part of the ISO team responsible for writing ISO 19262-19264 on Photography - Archiving Systems: Vocabulary; Best practices for digital image capture of cultural heritage material and Image Quality Analysis. At our conference, we will focus on ISO 19264. They will also be discussing Metamorfoze Preservation Imaging Guidelines version 1.0 January 2012 and Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) September 2016 - Technical Guidelines for Digitizing Cultural Heritage Materials.
The discussions will be on the digitisation of two-dimensional images such as printed matter, technical drawings, manuscripts, maps, photographs, prints, negatives and transparencies. Also colour encoding accuracy, the quality control of digital image performance and example workflow processes will be discussed - all to enable you to consistently create the correct image quality and metadata of the "first file".
Volker Jansen studied Photographic Engineering and is one of the Co-Founders of UTT Test Charts and Processes (foundation of ISO standard 19262-19264), a Member of DIN NVBF 2 (Standards Committee Event Technology, Image and Film of the German Institute for Standardization (DIN)) and a Member of ISO/TC42 JWG26 - Digitizing Cultural Heritage Materials (working at standards ISO 19262; 19263, 19264)
At our special event Volker will offer the following information:
1. A general overview of the three-quality management standards ISO, Meta and FADGI
2. Implementing a workflow according to one of the above standards
3. Give an insight into his work experience at the Standard Committee
4. Open discussion about experiences that you have had and your thoughts about the future of Digitisation.
In addition, there will also be representatives from Inotec, who will be demonstrating how their 4x3 and 6x1 rotary scanners can now meet the FADGI 3 star level - meaning they perform the larger volume digitisation of historical, archival and cultural documents at the highest scan quality, while protecting the originals.
This event has been specifically designed to allow you to ask questions and interact with presenters so that you can take away as much information as possible that is relevant to you and your organisation.
In order to make the day worthwhile for you, they are planning on restricting the total amount of attendees to 30. Attendance is therefore on a first come, first served basis. At the end of the conference, you will also have the option to join a guided a tour of The Library of Birmingham at 2:30 pm. More details will be coming later but, at this stage, Genus are asking for people to register their interest in attending on the day.
