THE GALLERY OF FINE ARTS IN OSTRAVA HAS A UNIQUE SCANNER ENABLING IT TO DIGITALIZE ITS COLLECTIONS
In 2017 the Gallery of Fine Arts purchased a Cruse CS 350ST-MS14400-LED scanner with financial assistance from the Moravian-Silesian Region. The scanner can be used to create digital images of paintings, graphic art, posters, maps, old prints, various collections (coins, stamps, militaria, botanical and zoological items, textiles, minerals) and even wood engravings. The scanner can handle items with surface dimensions up to 180 x 300 cm and depth up to 15 cm.
In our modern computer-driven world, the digitalization of collections at galleries, museums, archives and libraries is an essential part of managing those collections. The Moravian-Silesian Region’s Digital Transfer Centre is the first facility of its kind in the Czech Republic, and it can be used by other institutions as well as by members of the public.
– digitalized images are more accurate representations of the original than photographs (more precise colours and definition)
– the scanned object is aligned vertically, so it is not necessary to fix it to a horizontal base
– the scanned object is exposed only to very gentle light
– the scanning process is rapid – only one scan is needed
– scanned images are in the hundreds of MB
