About Multimedia Digitisation

Our studio, based in the midlands has been specifically designed for the digitisation and scanning of heritage and modern material. All digitisation and storage takes place in a humidity and temperature controlled environment with correct protocols followed to ensure the best possible handling of material. Industry leading digital capture equipment and techniques ensure optimum digital output across a wide range of material. Our staff are fully trained and accredited in the handling of delicate and valuable items. A ‘white glove’ approach and the use of specialist lighting, cradles and supports, limits the risk of any damage to the original items.


Outsource or On-Site?
Our digitisation centre provides a hassle-free option for outsourced digitisation and scanning projects but we also know that for certain projects onsite scanning is more appropriate, for example due to reasons of confidentiality, security or nature of the material. Genus provides the option of an on-site service team for these requirements. We will arrange for you to be visited by a digitisation specialist who can discuss your aims and objectives. They will review your current collections and help you set out a plan to turn your originals into a digital library, using the most suitable digital capture techniques.
