Professional Digital Imaging Lab, the best in pro quality  


We provide the most recent technology in scanning and archiving a vast array of originals, including any size of chromes, negatives, slides, glass plate negatives, or any other formats you or your institution may have. We offer superior organization and management of projects of any size, ranging from small private collections to collections comprised of hundreds of thousands of images.

Digitized images can be customized for specific applications such as print, web, server-ready files and database. A digital image database is an invaluable tool for any institution seeking to preserve originals, organize and manage them efficiently, and create a system that can be easily accessed and shared.


  1. 1.  Capital investment is usually greater than the cost of services.

  2. 2.  Equipment is quickly outdated and must be replaced.

  3. 3.  Technicians performing the scanning require extensive training and highly qualified supervision.

  4. 4.  Turning your institution into a production company is a complicated task that requires significant investments of resources and time.
