DT Digitization Certification 201: Operator Training

This course is a 2-day, in-person class that covers routine workflows for camera-based digitization systems, from capture to post-processing. Topics like setting exposure, establishing focus, creating an LCC (even field), as well as topics like file organization, batch editing, and batch processing are discussed and demonstrated in detail. Also included are basic standards-compliance theory and image-quality evaluation, including Golden Thread and OpenDice. Students emerge ready to be operators of modern digitization systems for most non-challenging object types.

While not required, we recommend students bring a laptop to the training with them for a more hands-on experience. The curriculum covers workflows for both Capture One Pro (for clients using commercial-oriented cameras like Canon, Nikon, Sony, or Fuji) and Capture One CH (for clients using cultural-heritage-oriented cameras such as DT and Phase One systems). We strongly suggest you install and activate a trial of Capture One Pro a week or two prior to the class; the trial is good for 30 days so will still be valid after the class for you to practice various techniques you learn during the class. You’re welcome to have Capture One installed on your laptop but it is NOT a requirement. If you need help with installing Capture One or activating the Pro trial prior to the course, please contact
