The annual meeting of the Society of American Archivists, held in late summer in different cities throughout the country. It includes a wide array of informative education sessions, pre-conference workshops, networking opportunities, special events, exhibits, and tours of local repositories.


Why We Attend

Cultural Heritage Shows are our favorite aspect of being part of this vibrant and passionate community. They’re a great opportunity to meet with our clients and share meaningful dialogue with future clients. The needs of the Cultural Heritage community are constantly evolving and many of our new products, and improvements to existing products, come from feedback we receive at such shows. So we hope that, if you’re attending SAA, you will stop by our booth, not just to see our solutions, but to share with us your perspective on where preservation digitization should be headed. We are there just as much to learn from you as to have you learn about us.


Why You Should Attend

  • Bring back fresh ideas and new knowledge to benefit all of your colleagues;
  • Learn about cutting-edge techniques, tools and resources for digital imaging at the DTDCH booth in the Exhibit Hall;
  • Enhance your professional development by attending a pre-conference course;
  • Become a better advocate for archives;

  • Promote your institution’s profile in the archives community!

Mini-Theater: Film Scanning using a Camera; Challenges and Solutions (Presented by Digital Transitions)

Join Us Thursday, July 27 – 6:00pm – 6:30pm

Much of our shared cultural heritage is held in film collections, a material type that poses obvious challenges to balancing access and preservation. For years the only option for digitizing film was legacy film scanners. These are painfully slow, often require conservation-unfriendly handling. They are also falling into technological obscurity which creates issues with OS/driver support and repairs. Scanning film with a camera promises better image quality, much faster throughput and non-contact handling, but it also poses many challenges. During this presentation, we will review the various challenges to scanning film with a camera such as alignment, vibration, focus drift, lens quality, illumination spectrum, negative inversion, and batch handling along with solutions to these challenges.
