Transmedia can offer digitising, data capture and indexing of historical archives and are experienced at handling delicate historical documents either onsite or at our premises.
We can collect and return material with our own secure fleet of GPS tracked vans, ensuring the safety of your originals at all times.
We utilise optical character recognition (OCR) software to recognise typed or printed documentation and produce indexed, searchable digital content. In addition we can manually transcribe handwritten documentation which can't usually be recognised by OCR engines.
We have a choice of flatbed, overhead and cradle scanners for scanning all varieties of fragile or delicate items. These would be used in the preservation of books and sensitive historical documentation. High resolution lossless TIFF master images can be supplied along with low resolution OCR'd PDF or PDF/A images for normal use or upload to the web.
