Case Studies – Applications of Rencay Digitization Solutions from Institutions, Service Providers and Industry
The flexibility and modularity of the Rencay system creates many opportunities that we might not even be aware of today. Imagination and creativity combined with the unique capabilities of the Rencay products has, and will continue to result in impressive photographic imaging. Perhaps you have an idea that you would like to explore…please contact us, we would like to help you realize your objectives.
Fine Art – high-quality scans for outstanding prints
FineArt places special demands on the reproduction of detail and color fidelity in digital reproduction.
Through our comprehensive color management workflows and the faithful reproduction of colors based on the Rencay technology, we offer our FineArt customers a perfect scan system for the reproduction of orignals in printing.
The RenView software provides a Shading Correction tool to contribute to a perfect reproduction. It will correct for any variations in the illumination of the subject surface due to strong side lighting for texture or enhancement of the original, as well as any falloff from the lighting setup or the lens itself.
In addition to the complete system, individual components are also available, which can be integrated into an existing system. Please ask…
Digitization of Cultural Heritage in Archives, Museums and Libraries
Digitization has become a cultural task. Not only the preservation and conservation of the stocks, but also the provision of information for science and research are important. Today underestimated frequently, the stocks are also to be made available to the interested citizen, who scarcely suspects which treasures are stored in some cellars.
Various complete solutions and individual components are available for the digitization of cultural heritage. Appropriate workflows enable digitization in accordance with DFG, FADGI and METAMORFOZE guidelines.
The persistent digitization and long-term archiving of cultural heritage places particular demands on the reproduction of colors, details and structures of an original. We offer you easy-to-use high-quality digitization solutions, the quality of which will continue to exist in decades. Adaptable automatisms and high reproducibility during reproduction, as well as freely changeable serial image output, facilitate a reliable work. The easy adjustment according to the DPI or the format of the original makes it much easier to meet the requirements for digitization. Appropriate workflows enable digitization in accordance with DFG, FADGI and METAMORFOZE guidelines.
For valuable books to be digitized with high resolution (more than 300dpi) and with high quality, suitable document holders are available. Corresponding workflows ensure a consistent quality from the first to the last page.
Archival Materials up to DIN A0
Templates with a size ranging from the stamp to DIN A0 can be advantageously digitized with a repro column. The Rencay DiRECT system includes the control of various repro columns. The handling is thus particularly simple and ensures consistently high qua lity.
Archival Materials larger than DIN A0 and Paintings
Due to the ease of handling, large documents can be digitized vertically. Depending on the application, there are vacuum walls, electrostatic frames, card holders and magnetic holders up to 4 x DIN A0 formats. There is an easel for paintings. Existing easels, vacuum walls or other document holders can be further used and integrated into an automated digitization system.
Since the system is not limited by the basic principle, special equipment can be used to digitize larger originals. The Rencay DiRECT camera system provides the required high resolution (for example, 4x DIN A0 at 300dpi).
Modularity and Mobility
All systems are modular. In addition to flexibility, mobility is also an issue, if it is necessary to digitize on location in the institutions..
Digitization of Transparencies
Glass plates, large format negatives or aerial photographs require special handling and a high resolution as well as a high density range of the digitization system. Owing to the often large stocks, high throughput is required.
The digitization of historical high-quality transparent materials often requires a higher effort in image processing because the density range can vary widely. The 48Bit workflow of the Rencay DiRECT camera system allows a simple adjustment of the density directly at the scan. An additional processing step can thus be saved. Archiving the negative as 48Bit TIFF RGB (also for monochrome objects) is recommended.
Due to the enormous detail and structure reproduction quality of the Rencay DiRECT camera system, there are many applications in the area of industrial documentation, quality assurance or criminal investigation. The high reproducibility of the workflows ensures consistent quality while the shading correction helps to eliminate unwanted light effects. Due to the technology of the trilinear scanning method, disturbing moiré effects can not occur and smallest details, even with low contrast, are documented. The flexible adaptation of the systems allows fast and easy work with different originals.
Decor Industry – Digitization of a Wide Range of Materials
We meet the special requirements of the decor industry by the enormous detail reproduction and free development of material structures. The shading correction helps to ensure uniform illumination while emphasizing the structures, while the FlashFocus makes it very easy to find the image segment, and both tools allow a perfect stitching of oversized originals. The comprehensive color management workflow and the enormous color fidelity of the trilinear scanning process ensure a perfect color reproduction. The system integration with a wide range of original holders ensures trouble-free digitization of all conceivable originals.
