Bespoke Archive Digitisation Ltd based in London UK provides a Digitisation service to the Library, Archive, Preservation and Education community.
We specialise in the Digitisation of Cultural Heritage media, although we also handle modern collections, please see our services guide for a full list of media we can digitise.
We have worked on small, medium, and large scale projects over the past ten years, can work on site at your location, or if needed at our studios.
Our studio is in a secure location, temperature controlled, and any collections we hold are kept in a temperature controlled holding area as we fully understand preservation and conservation practices. Similarly, all Bespoke operators have a keen understanding of handling rare and fragile collections, and undergo full training in conservation practice.
We use a variety of equipment to create digital facsimiles of your collections, and work closely with the worlds top manufacturers to ensure we have the best solutions at hand for any given collection. This is decided on a case by case basis, as we know all collections will require different handling techniques, and capture methodologies.
All of our workflows are fully colour managed throughout the lifecycle of all projects we undertake, and all Bespoke equipment is rigorously calibrated to ensure perfection and consistency in our results.
Images can be created and provided in a variety of formats and resolution, with full Indexation, of items up to A0+ in size, and printed text can be delivered with associated metadata attached and converted to machine readable formats if required. (Manuscripts can be transcribed if requested) We hold an Abbyy Recognition Server Licence, and can convert text to virtually any format required, if you have any questions about OCR/Indexation, please get in touch.
We are proud to have worked on some truly amazing collections for establishments across Europe and the UK, and believe the service we provide is second to none, so please call or email with any questions.
