Keeping History Real: New PDF Compression Solution Brings Archived Libraries into the Digital Age

Keeping History Real: New PDF Compression Solution Brings Archived Libraries into the Digital Age

With the ability to deliver highly compressed, easily accessible, digital PDFs of publications, IDI restores entire generations worth of history and brings the past to life, in an age of instant everything.


East Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) July 31, 2015

In today’s day and age, everything is digital and everything is now. Instant checkouts, expedited delivery, whatever it is, it always has to be faster and easier, because honestly, who even has the time? Innovative Document Imaging LLC (IDI), a leader in document conversion services, uses state-of-the-art technology to take entire generations worth of history and convert them into highly compressed, easily accessible, digital PDFs. What does that mean to anybody? It means history can be real, which today means, right now.

Take the average library, for instance. On an average day, are there a lot of people there? The answer, sadly, is not really. Then think of all the amazingly old documents that are literally decomposing right now in archives, basements, and storage spaces throughout the world. Those can’t last forever, or can they? IDI has already digitized the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution along with countless other historical documents, and making these documents digital is what allows them to preserve history forever. Now with the ability to make those files small & easy to manage, history is truly accessible. After IDI digitized archives for a local library, a resident wrote, “Without their efforts and dedication to this project our families’ past would have been lost forever.”

Marty Tannenbaum, President of IDI, speaks about a recent client, who needed 80 years worth of archived print publications – almost 4,000 issues – digitized in color, “One of their major requirements was that the full-color electronic copies could be downloaded quickly by readers searching the online archives.” IDI was able to reduce the size of each individual issue of the magazine from 116 MB to only 3 MB. At this size, searching through entire histories is now done quickly and easily, which is exactly what everyone wants to hear.

History is such an incredibly valuable resource, but only if it can be accessed. IDI has been working for years to preserve history, and with the implementation of this new PDF compression technology, they are making it easier and easier to access that history, and who knows, maybe even learn something.

New Technology Makes School Digitization A Reality: Reconnecting Alumni with their Priceless Memories

New Technology Makes School Digitization A Reality: Reconnecting Alumni with their Priceless Memories

Digital Media Memory, a division of Innovative Document Imaging, just launched their Digi-Find-It portal, a one-stop, online experience that allows alumni to recapture some of their most treasured memories. Finally, schools have truly entered the digital, information age as their yearbooks and other hallowed media and memories are both available and easily accessible online.


East Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) June 25, 2015

Digital Media Memory (DMM), a division of Innovative Document Imaging (IDI), just launched their Digi-Find-It portal, a one-stop, online experience that allows alumni to recapture some of their most treasured memories.

 

The portal serves as an online database, allowing alumni the ability to easily search and navigate through their school’s history with the click of a touch. Finally, schools have truly entered the digital, information age as their yearbooks and other hallowed media and memories are both available and easily accessible online.

If you have not heard about DMM or IDI, they are the guys that digitized the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, some midieval manuscripts, and various other important documents in historical archives. Preserving history is what they do, which is why they created the Digi-Find-It portal. “We were already doing this great work to preserve these integral monuments of history,” says Marty Tannenbaum, President of IDI, “so we decided to use that same technology and that same precision and process and apply it to local communities, like schools, libraries, and small businesses.”

“But then we realized that just preserving these histories, these memories, was not enough. We needed a way to be able to access all of this newly-restored material. That is when the Digi-Find-It portal was born.”

Indeed, what is the point of having mountains of restored historical documents, whether they are yearbooks or old city records, unless there is a system for easily navigating through the information. This is just another example of when innovation and need shared the same space long enough for a new way to be born. Just because someone went to high school in the previous millennium doesn’t mean their memories have to stay there. DMM has created a way for alumni to easily access their treasured and forgotten memories, and that way is the Digi-Find-It portal.

With this technology, the people at DMM have found a way to enhance relationships between schools and their communities. Through the use of creative enhancements, like yearbook digitization, DMM helps schools and alumni connect their past to the future.

IDI is a world leader in preserving history including clients such as the New York Historical Society (Gilder Lehrman collection: including an original copy of the US constitution and the 13th amendment) the Smithsonian Institute, the Academy Awards, the British Library and the American Antiquarian Society.

The details on how all of this operates can be found at http://www.dmmem.com. Questions can be sent via the contact form on the website, or one can call toll-free 800-380-9050 or 732-613-7170.

Digital Memory Media Announces Alumni Relations Enhancement Program

Digital Memory Media Announces Alumni Relations Enhancement Program

Digital Memory Media (DMM) has launched a new campaign towards enhancing alumni relations for private schools nationwide. By digitizing school media (photos, videos, yearbooks, etc.) and providing an online portal for easy search and access of the materials, DMM assists the school’s development department to cultivate and enhance relationships with alumni and parents.


East Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) May 26, 2015

Digital Memory Media (DMM), an exciting division of Innovative Document Imaging (IDI), has launched a new campaign towards enhancing alumni relations for private schools nationwide.

 

By preserving and having the ability to retrieve a private school’s history, Digital Memory Media assists the school’s development department to cultivate and enhance relationships with alumni and parents, making them more likely to contribute to an institution that has meant a lot to them and their children.

Digital Memory Media (DMM) is an exciting division of Innovative Document Imaging (IDI). IDI is an industry leader with a long history of serving the world’s top libraries, publishing companies, pharmaceutical companies, universities, historical societies and businesses. DMM’s new website has been launched to offer the same technology and expertise IDI used to digitally preserve historical documents, like the United States Constitution and the 13th Amendment.

Digital Memory Media (DMM) serves its customers from a state-of-the-art document conversion facility in East Brunswick, NJ. DMM performs digital conversion of 8mm and 16mm film, tapes, video cassettes, photos, slides, audio cassettes and reels, at a reasonable price.

IDI and DMM can preserve a school’s history by digitizing the school’s photos, videos, documents, 8mm or 16mm movies, slides, yearbooks, newspapers microfilm and oral histories. However, the digitization of old media alone means little without an effective means of organizing and accessing the materials. This is why DMM provides a portal for easy access to the historical content, like the digital yearbook — the website can be segmented for public or private (i.e. alumni only) viewing. Maximizing new digital technologies is a surefire way to enhance alumni relations.

Mary Ann Fox, Archivist and Librarian for The Hun School of Princeton had this to say: “Over the years I continue to send our documents and videos to DMM on a regular basis so that each year of our school’s activities is documented and preserved. They perform their work with the highest technical ability, and with the utmost integrity. DMM’s services are of great importance to an archivist who has the responsibility for the preservation of The Hun School’s history.”

IDI is a world leader in preserving history including clients such as the New York Historical Society (Gilder Lehrman collection: including an original copy of the US constitution and the 13th amendment) the Smithsonian Institute, the Academy Awards, the British Library and the American Antiquarian Society.

Some of DMM’s private school clients include The Hun School, Princeton Day School, Archdioceses of Patterson, Fordham Prep, Friends Academy, and Oak Knoll School.

All digital conversions are performed (in-house) at the safe and secure East Brunswick facility. The details on how all if this operates can be found at http://www.dmmem.com. Questions can be sent via the contact form on the website, or one can call toll-free 800-380-9050 or 732-613-7170.

Combining DMM’s technology with IDI’s history of success in document imaging has created a convenient vehicle for preserving and accessing precious memories from anywhere. DMM transforms film, photos and audio into crystal clear cinema quality digital formats that will last forever, thus enhancing the school’s development department and growing stronger bonds with the student body, parents, alumni, and future recruits for years to come. Now is the time for schools to preserve their histories before it is too late.

Public Libraries Benefit from Innovative Document Imaging Preservation Services

Public Libraries Benefit from Innovative Document Imaging Preservation Services

Digital Memory Media, a subsidiary of Innovative Digital Imaging (IDI), maintains a state-of-the-art digital imaging facility in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

(PRWEB) May 01, 2015

Digital Memory Media, a subsidiary of Innovative Digital Imaging (IDI), maintains a state-of-the-art digital imaging facility in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Libraries with limited space have many projects which can benefit from digitization, and IDI has signed up some of its New Jersey library neighbors for recent projects.

Haddonfield Library has a contract to digitize 100,000 documents containing the town of Haddonfield’s real estate records including color and black and white photos of the individual homes. The project was completed at the end of January.

In December 2014, The Waldwick Public Library contracted with IDI to digitize its local history consisting of yearbooks and scrapbooks. The project was completed in four weeks and IDI also hosts the library Digit-Find-It web portal for browsing and key word searches across its collection. The portal will be linked to the Waldwick Public Library website.

Both Westfield and Cranford Public Libraries have individually contracted with IDI to host their local history content on the Digit-Find-It portal. The collections consist of yearbooks, city directories, oral histories (converted by Digital Memory Media from cassettes) and local newspapers including the Westfield Leader and the Cranford Chronicle.

Joyce Nencetti of Suffern, NY said “We received an enthusiastic response from our community when we offered them the opportunity to digitize and preserve their treasured memories. It was a great fundraiser for our Library.”

The public library projects are just one example of how modern digitization capabilities can be of service to individual communities. On a larger scale, IDI has completed some huge digitization projects. The company has successfully completed the Stage II scanning of the Gilder Lehrman Collection for Adam Mathews Publishing at the New York Historical Society. The full collection consists of over 300,000 images and is considered one of the great archives of American history. It contains some of the country’s most important historical documents such as one of the original twelve copies of the signed Declaration of Independence and the original Emancipation Proclamation. A one-half hour documentary on the project is available on the Innovative Document Imaging web site http://www.idiimage.com and the Adam Mathews web site http://www.amdigital.co.uk/m-collections/collection/american-history-1493-1945/.

The availability of this material is an invaluable resource for teaching courses on American history and as a platform for undergraduate essay work and postgraduate research. The amount of work which has gone into the digitized preservation of these records is amazing. The technology making the preservation possible is equally amazing and has easily available application to the photos, letters, videos and mementos that are forming Twenty-First Century history.

Many people do not realize how much photographs and videotapes deteriorate. Because of the chemical makeup and the development process for photographs, deterioration is expected through the years. Videotapes lose their magnetic signal over time as the binder holding the magnetic particles to the polyester base decays. The friction between the VCR head and tape causes the quality and color to deteriorate. The tape grows brittle and eventually breaks. The same technology used in making sure the Gilder Lehman Collection survives for use by students, researchers and history buffs can make sure the record of birthday parties, high school musicals, weddings and other personal events will still be around for future generations to enjoy.

Customers across the United States and around the world are using the services of Innovative Document Imaging to digitize their important memories. For more information, visit http://www.idiimage.com.
