Digital Restoration

Specialist image enhancement for quality content capture.

Carefully restore fragile and damaged materials.

Digital restoration is the process of ensuring the quality of an image is up to standard for the best possible capture. In some instances, we are handed frail and torn materials that are in such a state of degradation they require meticulous restoration before we proceed with digitising them. While much of this work is carried out in-house by our team of restoration experts, we also outsource some digital restorations that require a certain level of skill and expertise.

Ideal for:

  • Improving content capture
  • Enhancing the quality of materials
  • Restoring vulnerable items
