Scanner & Camera Imaging Performance: Ten Commandments


UPDATED Scanner & Camera Imaging Performance: Ten Commandments
Instructors: Peter Burns, Burns Digital Imaging and Don Williams, Image Science Associates
Level: Introductory
Duration: 2 hours, with a 15 minute break
Course Date: Friday 11 June
Course Time:
    New York: 10:00 - 12:15
    Paris: 16:00 - 18:15

Prerequisites: A working knowledge of digital scanner and camera operation and their common technologies will be assumed.

This course enables the attendee to:

  • Interpret and comply with customer imaging requirements.
  • Establish accountability for imaging performance problems.
  • Compare various levels of FADGI and Metamorfoze guidelines.
  • Critically evaluate manufacturers' claims of resolution, color errors, and noise.

Intended Audience: Managers, engineers, and technicians responsible for evaluating and monitoring scanner and camera performance, and emerging guidelines. This includes manufacturers, service providers, and content custodians.

Course Description: This is a no-nonsense course on simple and achievable tools/techniques to build a solid digital imaging foundation for the capture of resilient and versatile digital images. We have updated this course from a previous Top Ten Tips publication. These include realistic color management, predictable behavior of branded capture devices, and new methodologies for rapid capture imaging. Specific and practical examples of the use of ISO standards and institutional guidelines are described. More specifically, we address how to meet FADGI and Metamorfoze guideline requirements. The elements of this course can be applied by digital image service providers, collection custodians, and device manufacturers.

Peter Burns is a consultant working in digital image evaluation, system monitoring, and image processing. He has experience in several areas for digital imaging: digital photography, mobile imaging, cultural heritage. He has taught short courses for many years.
