We are thrilled to announce our participation in the upcoming IS&T Archiving 2024 conference in Washington DC, April 9-12—an esteemed gathering of industry experts and professionals dedicated to advancing the field of digital archiving. As pioneers in digitization technology, we look forward to showcasing our latest innovations and sharing insights to empower attendees in their preservation efforts.

Hi[Lighting] the DT Stellar:

At our exhibit, we will be shining a spotlight on the DT Stellar. With its impressive lighting statistics, including high spectral quality (CRI=98, CQS=98, TM30-15=98) and featuring DT Fusion for improved color accuracy even on spectrally challenging colorants, the DT Stellar ensures unparalleled accuracy in capturing the true colors and details of both reflective and transmissive archival materials. From delicate manuscripts to vintage photographs, the DT Stellar illuminates every aspect with precision, setting a new standard for digitization excellence.

Explore DT’s Doug Peterson and National Geographic Society’s Julie McVey’s Course: “Can/Should AI Do That? Heritage Digitization Use Cases for AI
4/9/2024, 10:15 AM – 12:15 PM, Eastern Daylight Time

Course Description: 

Understanding the capabilities and limitations of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is crucial in today’s digital landscape, particularly in cultural heritage contexts. This comprehensive course provides attendees with essential knowledge and practical skills to navigate AI applications effectively. Beginning with an overview of AI in heritage contexts, the course features three case studies demonstrating the augmentation of collections metadata through various AI techniques, including entity extraction, context-specific geomapping, image segmentation, and caption generation. Participants will gain insights into developing robust evaluation frameworks for AI projects, encompassing ethical considerations, research question formulation, project goal setting, and the role of pilot projects in assessing success. Emphasizing ethical practices and mitigating bias, this course ensures attendees are equipped to make informed decisions and maximize the impact of AI in enhancing digitized collections.


Upon completion of this course, attendees will:

  • Gain proficiency in basic ML/AI tools and techniques commonly used in heritage contexts.
  • Articulate project goals and develop Request for Proposals (RFPs) for AI/ML projects.
  • Evaluate vendors and design pilot projects effectively.
  • Create evaluation frameworks integrating practical and ethical considerations for AI/ML use in enhancing digitized collections.

Intended Audience:

This course is ideal for digitization program managers, collection managers, and other professionals tasked with digitization and metadata project management. No prerequisite knowledge is necessary, making it accessible to individuals at all levels of expertise.


As we gear up for IS&T Archiving 2024, we invite fellow professionals, researchers, and enthusiasts to join us in this collaborative endeavor to advance the art and science of digital archiving. Together, let’s explore the latest innovations, exchange ideas, and chart a course towards a future where cultural heritage is preserved and accessible to all. We look forward to connecting with you at the conference and embarking on this transformative journey together.
