Digitising on Demand
The Digitising Center of the Department of Image Science offers its experience in high-end digitising of paintings, graphic art, photographs, and other kinds of images also as an on-demand service. A specially trained museum photographer guarantees an appropriate handling of the originals and the production of state-of-the-art digitisations and their professional post-processing. Our experience also allows the digitising of whole collections. The digital reproductions will be adjusted individually to the needs of our clients. If requested the staff of our digitising center will also manage the technical communication with your printing and design partners. During the digitising work precious objects can be stored in the climatized rooms of the Graphic Art Collection Göttweig where they are safeguarded against theft, fire, humidity and extreme temperature.
