Dtek at The Wellcome Trust:
Multi Spectral Imaging with Dtek and Phase One
We will showcase a multi spectral imaging system and workflow.
Our latest generation MSI system yields high quality images with our fully integrated operating and image processing software. Our workflow and data management provide an efficient workflow to collect, process, enhance and manage standardised multispectral image data and metadata. Based on the latest Phase One iXG Camera System with 100MP Achromatic sensor and narrowband LED lights that illuminate the object in multiple wave bands, including capturing fluorescence from the subject matter, it capitalises on techniques and technologies developed during multispectral imaging supporting institutions and scholars around the globe spanning almost two decades.
The workshop will be followed by a tour of the Wellcome Photographic Studios.

The Postal Museum
In July 2017, The Postal Museum opened London’s first major new museum in a decade. A key part of the new museum is a comprehensively-equipped studio to digitise its varied collections to the highest possible standards. Having never had a digitisation facility associated with the collection before this gave us the opportunity to create a completely new digitisation strategy with no legacy systems to work around. Come and have an informal tour of The Postal Museum Digitisation Studio, see how we’re utilising the new ISO19264 imaging standards in our workflows. Our work with photogrammetry, lidar scans, virtual reality games, cross-polarised imaging, tiling, RTI, books scanning and object photography.
