DT Digitization 201: Operator Training
This course covers routine workflows for camera-based digitization systems, from capture to post-processing. It covers topics like setting exposure, establishing focus, creating an LCC (even field), as well as topics like file organization, batch editing, and batch processing. Also included are basic standards-compliance theory and image-quality evaluation, including FADGI, ISO 19264, Golden Thread, and OpenDice. Students emerge ready to be operators of modern digitization systems for most non-challenging object types.
