More Than a Copy Stand

The DT Versa is a complete digitization platform. The stand, camera, and column seamlessly integrate with our software for fast and easy preservation-grade digitization. The Versa allows digitization with or without glass contact.

Conservation Friendly

With the Versa in place, all scanning is done 100% contact-free. Removing that hard top reveals a conservation-friendly glass top with a user-settable maximum and with such precise control of the object that the operator can raise the object to lightly kiss the glass.

Scan Anything

Nearly anything can be scanned with the DT Versa. Bound materials are its raison d’être, but it’s equally at home scanning manuscripts, flat artwork, maps, translucent materials such as film or glass plate negatives, as well as specimens.

Standards Compliant

Our DT Versa complies with FADGI 4-star, Metamorfoze Strict, and ISO 19264 Level A image quality standards, as well as JHOVE file format standards. Institutions such as The Library of Congress, The National Archives, and Getty trust our systems to provide the ultimate image quality.

Open Platform

While our camera and software offer simplicity, quality, and throughput, the Versa accepts any camera. You can purchase a Versa on one budget cycle and our camera on the next, or upgrade the camera anytime.

Solid, Precise, and Perfectly Aligned

The bench is made in the USA to 0.005” tolerances from aerospace grade aluminum. The DT AutoColumn precisely positions the camera within two-hundredths of an inch, and the Phase One iX camera platform enables focus movement in microns for meticulous accuracy.
