Heritage Scanning and Digitisation

Are you storing the only remaining hard copy of a document or archive? Is it deteriorating greatly? Does it hold particular sentimental or historic value?


You have two options; preserve your hard copy through protected storage as best as you can or call on heritage scanning services to help.


Heritage scanning can include the digitisation and enhancement of family photos, cine film, glass plate negatives, video and audio among others.This service can restore your photos or documents to their former glory through digitisation and post-scan processing to enhance faint areas.


The benefits of preserving your heritage archives in this way are;

  • Your files will be future-proofed and safe from loss, theft and damage.

  • You will be able to access them from anywhere at any time.

  • You will be able to retrieve them easier through simple text searches.

  • You can free up space previously used to store them.

  • You can share digital files much easier than their hard copy counterparts.
