This two-day course is an intensive training program tailored to cultural heritage workflows. It focuses on both Capture One software and professional imaging hardware. We will cover proper configuration, setup, workflow and troubleshooting techniques for Phase One camera systems, computers and DTDCH Capture Solutions. Capture One teaching focuses on workflow efficiency and advanced tools. At the completion of this course, attendees will be given a test to achieve certification status. The Digital Transitions Division of Cultural Heritage (DTDCH) and Phase One have created an intensive training program specialized for cultural heritage institutions: Phase One Cultural Heritage Specialist.
Duration: Two days of hardware and software training including hands-on practice
Price: $499.00 (includes 90-day free trial of Capture One CH, sent upon completion of the in-person training.)
Attendees are required to complete the Phase One Pre-Course prior to the in-person training. The Pre-Course covers many of the basics on Capture One that we will build on during the training. There are 3 courses in total and each course is a mixture of articles and video, and includes 1-2 short quizzes on the material. Our best estimate is that completing the required material should take about 5 hours perhaps much less if you already have a good understanding of the material. We suggest breaking it up over a few days.
The Certification test will cover the topics covered during the class. If any attendee does not pass the test, a re-test is allowed. Certification requires two portions:
- Completion of the online POCP Pre Course including passing the tests.
- Attend the live training course and pass the written exam at the end of the second day of training.
Training will include a mixture of lecture and hands-on practice. You will have the opportunity to use the IQ and P+ camera systems featuring several camera body systems. The following topics are an outline for what will be covered in great depth during training:
- How the back captures (two shot system, black calibration, CCD calibration)
- Proper settings for capture and power
- Capture workflow (how to set up the system and take shots)
- Care and handling

Film Scanning Happy Hour: Bring Your Own Film!
Do you love film, but hate the results of obsolete scanners?
Do you ever wish you could turn your slides and negatives into real raw files, rather than flat, over-sharpened TIFFs?
Do you like food, drinks, and hanging out with other people who are passionate about film photography?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’ll definitely want to join the Digital Transitions team in our NYC Studio for our first ever Film Scanning Happy Hour!
We’ll give you an inside look at how the huge film collections at Disney, The Getty Museum, and the Library of Congress use DT instant capture systems to digitize their multi-million frame archives in record time – with superior quality to drum and virtual-drum scanners.
And the best part? We’ll have demo stations up and running, so you can give your own frames the “cultural heritage” treatment!
Feel free to bring one of your own standard 35mm, 645, or 6×6 film frames with you to have digitized in seconds! We’ll provide you with your very own personal raw files in addition to sample files that will be available to all attendees.
Note: for first-time users, we recommend bringing either black and white negatives or color slides, as we will not be covering raw workflows for color negative conversion. Files will be made available via file-sharing links shortly after the event.
The event will be held at the DT NYC Studio in Midtown Manhattan from 6:00 – 9:00 PM.
You can register here to reserve your spot. Your ticket purchase confirms your attendance to the event on March 12 and holds your reservation.
Contact Kate at email@example.com with any questions regarding the event or registration.
