From the 11th – 13th November 2022 Genus showcased its’ new 3D Object Digitisation Service in conjunction with digitisation.io at the Classic Motor Show at the NEC in Birmingham. Our new 3D system drew a huge amount of attention from both fellow exhibitors and attendees.
We now have a list of sample objects that clients would like to be digitised in 3D. On a constant loop on our stand was a video of the model that we had created of a Triumph Rev Counter and this is now available to view on our website and YouTube channel. In addition, we have also loaded some extra 3D models onto our website to showcase what our new system is capable of producing – basically anything up to the size of a human and weighing less than 100kg! For larger and heavier items, we also have solutions, so please contact us.
Such was the interest in our 3D capture service, that is was easy to forget the other offerings on show on our stand. We were displaying our Digitisation services, with a number of new car clubs signing up to have their archive collections captured – one being a full warehouse of documents! Also on show was the new BRM book, entitled “Racing for Britain”, that has been produced and printed by Porter Press. Andrew Austin from Genus was heavily involved in sourcing a great deal of the imagery and document content for this book, from the items that we had digitised on behalf of BRM. Our unique Recollect Digital Collections Management system was also on display on our touchscreen kiosk. Recollect got a lot of attention as the perfect way to display your digital collections and invite your members, public and community to engage with, and add to the indexing content of your collection – as well as adding their content to your collection, whilst retaining their personal copyright.
Last but by no means least were Geoff Laycock and Martin Devereux from digitisation.io who were on hand to offer free consultancy advice to Archive collections looking to begin their digitisation journey.
What an excellent but exhausting long weekend of activity. Many thanks to the Federation of British Historic Motor Vehicle Clubs, for inviting us to be part of their massive 1000sqm stand, as their digitisation partner of choice.
