SilverFast Archive Suite 8 preserves the World Cultural Heritage of Analog Image Originals

Kiel (ots) -

   Archiving Software offers efficient "non-destructive" Archiving
   Workflow by introducing new Virtual Light Table VLT  

LaserSoft Imaging (LSI) has introduced new features for its archiving software SilverFast Archive Suite 8. It has now available a newly designed Virtual Light Table (VLT). As another new feature, the user now can also scan to DNG RAW data format.

In the coming years billions of slides and images have to be digitized for preserving the included memories. Since analog image originals are always at risk of loss and damage, this high-quality digital archive should be built in a short time. The SilverFast Archive Suite 8 is established as software solution for this task. It perfectly teams up with the scanners from all major manufacturers.

During the scanning phase, it is crucial for a high-quality digital archive, the scanner captures as much information as possible. LSI's patented SilverFast Multi-Exposure® manages to double the Dynamic Range of many scanners. Thus, no image details get lost. Contrary as often assumed, the Dynamic Range plays a greater role for the quality of a scan than its resolution.

Using iSRD®, SilverFast's automatic dust and scratch removal, additional data from the scanner's infrared channel is directly written into the RAW data formats DNG (or HDRI). According to the "non-destructive" approach, after completing the scanning process, the user has an optimal digital image of its analog originals, which he can access for processing again and again.

Using the new VLT, organizing the digitized images is efficient and easy as well. Rating, arranging, selecting, categorizing - this tool simplifies the workflow enormously. For an efficient image optimization, image adjustments can be copied from one to all selected images using the JobManager. SilverFast processes all optimization jobs in batch mode.
