McGill Universidad

Greg Houston & Ann Marie Holland from Mc Gill University 

The largest manuscript that Mc Gill digitized

Mc Gill digitied a book of 600 years / 145 leaves or 300 parchment pages looks like a book from Game of Thrones thanks to the SupraScan QUARTZ. 

In 2017 they bought the SupraScan QUARTZ A1. They look for a scanner to digitize rare and fragile items from overhead.

Those day, only two other institutions in Quebec own a similar machine like the BANQ  and the Canadian Center for Architecture.

The SupraScan QUARTZ can digitize from 600 to 1000 dpi, this machine is ideal for scanning music scores which require a minimum of 600 dpi resolution to capture the finer details such as music lifts and characters.

The relief enhancement and anti-glare function are ideal for scanning this kind of books. The SupraScan has two lateral lights fixed onto one spot the relief enhancement allows us to shut off one of the lights which makes 3D elements such as the brass fixtures stand out.

The anti-glare function helps when Mc Gill digitized the selection of frame leaves. They photograph through the glass without any reflections and shadows.
