Who We Serve


DT Heritage is the premiere source for archival digitization solutions. Our expertise includes everything from project management, library science, and knowledge of digitization methods, to a deep understanding and appreciation of the history and relevance of a particular archive’s collection and goals moving forward.



Local and municipal collections often go unaddressed in the heritage world, but we at DT know that these collections are just as critical to our shared heritage as nationally-recognized museums and archives. Whether your institution is exploring digitization for preservation reasons, easier asset management, or even reducing physical space requirements for storing large archives, DT is the ideal partner for digitization solutions of any scale, on any budget.



For decades, libraries had no choice but to employ general-purpose office-oriented scanning technology to digitize their collections, a process that is inherently slow, of mediocre quality, and potentially damaging to delicate material and rare books. As part of DT Heritage’s vision – to be the authoritative destination for digitization solutions – developing a faster, higher quality, and safer method of digitizing books and other bound materials was a priority for us very early on.



Do you know the value of your heritage? Like many media rights holders, you might have countless historical items sitting in storage — including volumes of news-assignment photos, bound scripts with handwritten director or actor notes, playbills, costumes, set pieces, 3D models, animation cels, old news clippings, production equipment, memorabilia, photos (prints, slides, and film) and so much more. You can monetize this content.

Media & Entertainment


DT Heritage is a trusted name in the museum digitization community because it was founded by museum professionals, for museum professionals. Driven by owner Peter Siegel’s experience as Director of the Digital Imaging Division at the American Museum of Natural History, the company has always had one singular goal: to be the authoritative destination for cutting-edge digitization solutions worldwide.



Activate the power of your heritage by turning physical artifacts into searchable, accessible digital assets at the highest resolution available. DT Heritage can help sports leagues, federations, facilities, franchises, and other rights holders to realize brand value and generate additional revenue streams by providing digitization for sports organizations.

Sports Organizations


For institutions at the bleeding-edge of cultural heritage research, custom solutions are an everyday necessity, and constructing them requires a flexible partner well-versed in the most advanced imaging technologies available. DT Heritage has a full R&D division dedicated to building custom spectral solutions, automated capture sequences for time lapse and focus stacking, photogrammetry, and all manner of custom digitization cameras, lenses, lighting, and grip equipment.

Research & Scientific


Heritage Digitization is a field full of opportunities for those with the knowledge, experience and tools to capitalize on it. We have helped Service Bureau clients win millions of dollars in of government contracts, secure exclusive museum and library subcontracting opportunities, and attract unexpected clients from around the world. How? Simply put: our expert staff, as well as the the speed, quality, and durability of our systems provide the greatest return on investment for service bureaus.

The Morgan Library & Museum: A Longstanding Partnership With Digital Transitions

The Morgan Library & Museum is an awe-inspiring feat of cultural heritage conservation and architecture in the heart of New York City. It was built between 1902 and 1906 as the personal library of financier, collector, and cultural benefactor Pierpont Morgan, housing Morgan’s collection of rare books, manuscripts, and objects from some of the world’s greatest thinkers, writers, and creators. It has since grown into a major cultural institution. People come from around the world to see the vast collections of art, literature, music, and history — especially scholars, who want to study the original items and do primary research in person.


Digitizing Flat Artwork

Priceless flat artwork requires careful handling to ensure the process of digitization does not degrade their condition. This is especially important for drawings made with delicate media, paintings already in degraded condition, and items of priceless value. Each of our systems provides a range of handling options to put the operator in control of the material, ensuring their safety.

Cape Cod Museum of Art Calls on Digital Transitions to Help Bring Light to Its Vast Collection

Cape Cod is recognized as having the longest sustained artist colony in the United States, built on the tradition of art education starting with Charles Hawthorne in his Cape Cod School of Art in 1899. Most of the artwork produced on the Cape ends up leaving its shores one way or another, so visionary potter Harry Holl founded the Cape Cod Museum of Art in 1981 to reverse that trend. The museum retains some of the finest works in the region and holds them in public trust for exhibition and for future generations to appreciate.

Branding from Legends to Legacy: Digitization of Sports Heritage

For sports teams and organizations, brands are built on the shoulders of legendary individuals. Coaches “Curly” Lambeau and Vince Lombardi helped the Green Bay Packers soar to new heights and athletes like Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, and Babe Ruth redefined their sports and transcended the arena to become cultural icons. While branding was once a simple and straightforward tool for sports organizations to identify themselves, it has now become a way of conveying who they are, what they are, and what their goals are. Within sports teams and organizations, individuals’ stories and successes inspire people, help establish an identity, and create a brand.
