Digitization Solutions for Museums
DT Cultural Heritage is a trusted name in the museum digitization community because it was founded by museum professionals, for museum professionals. Driven by owner Peter Siegel’s experience as Director of the Digital Imaging Division at the American Museum of Natural History, the company has always had one singular goal: to be the authoritative destination for cutting-edge digitization solutions worldwide.

Our deep understanding of the museum community’s needs and our uncompromising approaches to meeting them have earned us the trust and business of many of the nation’s elite museums and collections, including the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Modern Art, and numerous other institutions around the US. No project is too big or too small for DT Cultural Heritage.
With our knowledgeable sales representatives, purpose-built reprographic systems, workflow optimization programs, and dedicated training and support team, we offer more than cameras, copy stands, and lighting; we build long term relationships to provide end-to-end solutions for your unique needs, today and years down the line.
For institutions looking to outsource some or all of their digitization, our service division, Pixel Acuity, has extensive experience working with museum collections.

Phase One XF Camera System
Using full-frame Medium Format sensors 2.5 times larger than the ones found in high-end DSLRs, XF delivers a powerful combination of the highest possible resolution together with large, high dynamic range pixels with exceptional wide angular response.
The DT VERSA (shown with the Hard Top removed) is a multi-role copy stand for digitization of diverse materials, including books (using the glass top plate), film (partnered with DT FSK), loose manuscripts and flat art. The DT VERSA is a fast and versatile digitizing machine that is a great compliment to any institutions preservation needs.
Legacy copy stands were not designed with the precision required for modern high-resolution digitization. The DT ELEMENT Reprographic System was built from the ground up for the era of digital capture.
