Founded in 2013, The Digital Archive Group (TDAG) is a Chicago, Illinois based company that specializes in high quality archival scanning services and digitization.
For TDAG, image quality is paramount, but so too is flexibility and efficiency. Their formidable array of in-house scanning equipment reflects this however nowhere were these needs more critical than with their most recent project. The project involving the digitization of 500 of the most popular cited law cases from the DC Court of Appeals, would consist of over 300,000 pages from variable sized bound volumes. TDAG needed to acquire an automated scanner that could handle varying book sizes and thicknesses while at the same time providing swift, high quality image capture. Kirtas’ KABIS line of book scanning systems fit the bill.
According to TDAG CEO Jeff Kelch. “The volumes are up to 5″ thick and each volume can have several different page sizes. The KABIS II+ allows us to quickly adjust for page size without having to remove the asset from the cradle. Just a couple of simple adjustments and we can scan the next size page.”
