The traditional concept of ‘evolution’ is usually that of a plodding process involving many, many years of slow gradual change and adaptation to a slowly transforming environment. In the mercurial abodes of today’s technological world however, the past is simply a brief prologue to the remarkable and rapid advancements of the present. Ristech Company immediately recognized this when a current client with new demands came calling on short notice.
Due to the swift and persistent evolution of digitization technology, the National Assembly in Quebec City was no longer able to utilize its current array of digitization solutions to scan documents to accepted standards. They realized that they needed to procure higher-powered, more efficient and more versatile imaging devices. The decision to contact Ristech and purchase the I2S Quartz A1V HD book scanner gave them an immediate evolutionary jump in all aspects.
The Library at the National Assembly has long served the documentary and research needs of parliamentarians, administrative units and various external clients by providing them with reliable information and impartial analysis. Their brand new Quartz system ensures the preservation of the integrity of administrative documents, parliamentary documents, institutional and private archives and both bound and unbound heritage collections, and also responds to the various needs of their many external clients.
With its pristine high-res image quality, rapid scan time, intuitive LIMB Capture user interface, spacious scanning area, and cutting edge features such as glare control, relief enhancement, and FADGI and Metamorfoze standards compliance, the Quartz not only showcases the quick adaptability of the library’s internal resources, it also keeps the institution at the forefront of imaging technology. The effects of the acquisition will be both immediate and transformational— not only an evolutionary leap forward, but a REVOLUTIONARY one as well.
