Workshops on imaging

From: Steven D. Smith <smith>
Date: Tuesday, September 15, 1998
AMIGOS Imaging Workshops in New Mexico and Texas
Introduction to Imaging and Imaging Technology in Libraries
and Archives

This two-day workshop provides an overview of digital imaging, and
gives participants a concrete demonstration of the technology and
process of imaging, and the effect these have on the creation of
high quality digital images. The workshop covers the selection of
appropriate materials, guidelines and benchmarks for image quality,
file formats, headers and compression. A hands-on introduction to
digital imaging hardware, software, and storage media and devices is
a core component of the workshop, along with a comparison of
different technologies and workstation configurations, examination
of workflow and outsourcing conversion issues and the search and
retrieval, including indexing, metadata, and networking of images.
