Bound Book Digitization
TDAG has invested in state-of-the-art Kirtas-Kabis II automated book scanners.
This system is recommended for most all bound publications and can accommodate any type of bound materials including books, newspapers, magazines, annual reports, yearbooks and scrapbooks. Page images are captured using the latest Canon 21MP camera in full 24-bit color in a fraction of a second, enabling production of over 500 pages per hour. This system has automatic book centering with a 110- degree position which is optimal for low stress, gentle book positioning and is ideal for fragile and rare books.
Based upon the size and condition of the asset, TDAG may also utilize one of several manual book scanners including our Book2Net Kiosk and Image Access Bookeye 4 V1A. (pics of both).
Our Kirtas – Kabis book scanners are teamed with LIBRIS (more about Libris) software for OCR and multipage PDF creation. TDAG has always facilitated PDF and OCR services in-house and does not out-source this resource to third party vendors.

Fabric, Fashion & Textiles
TDAG is a leader in the preservation and digitization of fashion, fabric and textile libraries. Art directors and creative departments rely on fabric and textile libraries to reference old styles and patterns for new designs. Quite often, these libraries are stored in an off-site remote location. With fully digitized and tagged fabric library, the entire collection is available in a cloud-based DAM.
Our 100MP digitization systems have the ability to capture and digitize any size, format and style of fabric or textile. We have captured and digitized shirt fabric, wallpaper, sports uniforms, costumes, footwear and a variety of other textiles. Once digitized, TDAG will organize and create your custom, cloud-based digital fabric library.
