Access

Access and management to various types of documents are important factors in the organization and efficiency of a production structure. Digital documents are proliferating at a fast pace, while analog media remains a vibrant presence in many areas including photography, film, video and sound production.

Effective management of these resources involves not only preservation, digitization and archiving, but also effective classification; gateway for fast access and activation of analog and digital content.

FICTIS has developed an expertise in analog and digital resource management that is in line with SAA, AVAPIN, and RDDA standards. Our system emphasizes multipoint access capability.

DIGITIZING SERVICE

Over the past few years, FICTIS has designed a high-resolution black-and-white negative scanning process that generates positive DNGs with a wide dynamic range and impressive image quality.

This service allows, from 35mm to 6x7cm, the acquisition of the complete frame of the image plus the emulsive border, the prized natural emulsive frame in silver prints that is non-negotiable for several photographers.
