One + One = Three
i2S + Kirtas Technologies = The World Leader in Digitization
i2S has purchased a controlling interest in Kirtas Technologies, bringing together two leaders in the digitization market, becoming The World Leader in Digitazation.
Both companies come together as one, with vast experience in the manual and automatic book digitization markets, and the software required to maximize the utilization of the digitized images.
Moving knowledge from books to bytes by digitizing the vast, worldwide repository of knowledge amassed over the centuries of human history--that's how the printed word is freed. "It's an initiative that will change the way we think, learn, research, and discover."
The challenge is daunting, and you only want to do it once. Every page, picture, word, and character must be as clear and legible as the day it was originally published. The content must be searchable, and the resulting digitized file must be capable of being delivered in a variety of media--even those yet to be invented.
Kirtas can help you achieve these objectives while increasing your potential return on investment. Through the development of complete, turnkey solutions, critical information locked away in over 500 years of books and other bound documents can be restored, preserved, reused, reproduced and shared more efficiently and economically.
