Scanner & Camera Imaging Performance: Ten Commandments
Instructor(s): Peter Burns, Burns Digital Imaging and Don Williams, Image Science Associates
Duration: 2 hours, with a 15 minute break
Date: Wednesday, 25 May
New York: 10:00 – 12:15
Paris: 16:00 – 18:15
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
Course Description: This is a no-nonsense course on simple and achievable tools/techniques to build a solid imaging foundation for the capture of images for collections. 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 will be described (e.g., FADGI, US National Archives, and Metamorfoze). This course provides the background for our second course, Imaging Performance: Evaluation and Interpretation.
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. A working knowledge of digital scanner and camera operation and their common technologies is assumed.
