High End Scanning & Reproduction


High End Scanning & ReproductionEssentially there are three ways we can reproduce your artwork. We can scan the original, scan from a transparency or a print, or you can supply us a colour managed high quality digital file.

To enable the very best quality results, scanning from the original artwork is highly recommended and will produce prints of exceptional calibre and detail.

High End Scanning

To enable our craftsmen to produce limited edition prints of the very highest quality, our studio is equipped with the very latest and highest quality art capture equipment available. We are able to work with a variety of sizes, including very large artworks, up to 50″ x 80″

Facilitating the digitisation and reproduction of paintings, graphics, books, slides and different transparent or non-transparent objects, for use by artists, publishers, museums, galleries, archives, libraries, image centres and discerning reproduction companies.

High End Digital Archiving of Artworks
– Quality and Precision for Digitisation and Reproduction

  • Original artworks up to 80″ x 50″
  • Archival quality digital capture
  • Touch-sensitive objects such as valuable graphics, pictures and paintings
  • Reproduction to visualise structures absolutely necessitating perfect illumination
  • Archiving of books, journals and magazines
  • Objects to be restored
  • Garments and fabrics
  • Reprints of maps and blue-prints
  • Transparent objects up to 30 x 40 cm
  • Glass negatives
  • Historic glass paintings

The entire system is installed and calibrated to be geometrically perfect, to allow accurate pixel by pixel scanning. This requires micro-adjustment of alignment, by our trained technicians, before making each high resolution scan.

Three Dimensional Illumination

The correction of the illumination is monitored by specialist software thus always ensuring evenly illuminated reproductions. Should a three-dimensional surface be reproduced, for example a painting, there exists the possibility of operating with virtual 3D illumination. This specialist software assists in avoiding light fall-off to the corners and enhances the three dimensional properties of the subject being captured.

Using this technique, effects can be achieved exceeding pure reproduction, thus fulfilling demands of both conservationists and aesthetics.
