SPECIALIST LANTERN PLATE GLASS NEGATIVE PLATE SCANNING

Glass plates were far superior to film for research-quality imaging because they were extremely stable and less likely to bend or distort, especially in large-format frames for wide-field imaging. Early plates used the wet collodion process. The wet plate process was replaced late in the 19th century by gelatin dry plates.

Photographic materials require careful handling to ensure the process of digitization does not degrade their condition. Glass plate negatives, films with a nitrate base, and many photographic materials are susceptible to fingerprints, scratches, and sensitive to heat.

Working with museums, historical archival companies, corporations and private clients, we can cater for small units to bulk large orders in the many 1000's.  We can save your scanned imags on CD, DVD or USB drive, or if you prefer we can upload them to cloud or other online platforms.
