Data Center Description
Making a smooth transition from the traditional to the digital is, for many institutions, a daunting prospect. Over the next several years, every organization with existing visual holdings or plans for photographic projects will have to "think digitally." All face the same critical challenges: how to create high-quality image resources of lasting value; how to contend with the special requirements of large collections and demanding source materials and how to integrate images with associated descriptive information. Equally important will be the most effective ways to manage and use these growing assets.
In a networked world, the new generation of media software must ensure flexible, distributable and scalable access to images from anywhere. Researchers, educators, students and ever-expanding audiences for visual resources will expect dynamic, feature-rich user environments to view, compare and organize images, and to present them to others. Decision-makers and funders will look for the large scale, depth and economic leverage that coordinated efforts and shared access across collections are making possible.
Luna Imaging, Inc. responds to these needs by providing the services and dynamic software to build and use visual collections online in digital form. Luna blends an unparalleled reputation for quality scanning and digital photography with a unique understanding of the special problems associated with cultural collections-the demanding characteristics of different source material, the necessary association of metadata and the overarching importance of consistency. Luna can manage and deliver all of the skills and tasks to complete image projects or provide specific production and post-production services to scale projects or augment an institution's own work
Luna Imaging Inc. enables museums, libraries and archives to build and distribute high-quality visual collections in digital form and provides sophisticated software to manage, access and use image collections over the Internet.
