Each task is different. We approach each task individually and in the first place work out a detailed action plan
We organize executive crews, taking responsibility for the whole process of digitizing collections.
We can do the work in our studio, but we are ready to organize a mobile studio.
Several workstations, many specialists.
In order to make the digitized files available, we make and run websites.
studio of digitization of cultural heritage - Pro Tempus
Pro Tempus digitization and photography studio brings together people for whom protection of Poland's cultural heritage is a particularly important issue. Pro Tempus is actively working to promote these values.
The Pro Tempus Studio, existing since 1989, is a recognizable company on the commercial photography market.
Among the many projects implemented by Studio Pro Tempus, the digitization of national heritage is a prominent place. In this field, we cooperate with the Association - the Polish Brotherhood of Knights of Gutenberg. Every year, our achievements in this field grow significantly. We managed to complete the documentation of the historic churches in the Małopolskie and Podkarpackie voivodships, as well as in Grodno, Belarus. Among which were the unique beauty of the Orthodox churches. St. Michał Archanioła in Turzańsk, entered in 2013 on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list and the following ss Borys and Gleb na Kołoży.
We also digitized and published about 3,000 archives from the collection in Ukraine on the website. Among them are documents, manuscripts and incunabula (written in Polish, Latin, Church Slavonic, Ukrainian) - extremely valuable for the history of the multinational culture of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. They come from, among others from the resources of the State Central Historical Archives of Ukraine in Kiev - a family archive of the Potocki, Lubomirski and Rzewuski family archives from the 17th to the 20th centuries and unique manuscript documents, the oldest of which dates back to 1369. We also carried out interior digitization projects and collections collection for the Łańcut Castle Museum.
Our experience and technical facilities allow you to start cooperation with cultural institutions. When implementing digitalisation projects, we use the most modern digital technology that allows us to reproduce originals with large resolutions (gigapanorama effect using the technique of mosaic photography). We also carry out projects of virtual walks around the interiors of the objects with the possibility of virtual moving around the next rooms. We work using 3D modeling.
For the implementation of projects related to the digitization of museum, library or archival objects, we use a professionally equipped photographic studio with full post-production photography (preparation of multimedia or classic publications in codex form) - we have a DTP studio equipped with 6 Apple workstations. In 2015, we launched a 3D processing station based on Autodesk software. We have a professional shooting drone (UAV license - VLOS).
The founder of the studio is Paweł Myszka.
Presentation of some of the work carried out in 2011-2017
Our offer is very flexible. For the implementation of each project, we organize teams of specialists - if our own capabilities do not allow you to complete all the elements of the task.
Apart from commercial orders, our studio implements projects for the digitization of cultural heritage collections. Both of these activities complement each other perfectly. Our professional experience and technical facilities in both cases allow us to perform works at the highest required level. This applies to both technical issues and work discipline.
Our offer includes full digitalization of various facilities. The execution standard is the performance of works in accordance with the parameters described in the Catalog of Good Digitization Practices announced by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
The principle of operation is the complexity of implementation. As part of cooperation in the digitization of collections, depending on the subject of studies, we organize teams of specialists in their fields. We provide cooperation of art historians, conservators, specialists in the digital processing of graphic files, web programmers, 3D graphic designers and CAD designers. If necessary, we construct special equipment to perform non-standard orders.
The studio equipment is adequate for the tasks being carried out. We have equipment and software for digitalization in the Gigapanoram technology - we achieve reproduction sizes over 45000 pixels (with 5000 pixel dimensions recommended by the digitization standards). We also provide the opportunity to access reproductions made in this technology through specially prepared websites. We have equipment and software to perform virtual tours of the interiors of objects with the possibility of interactive control.
Our equipment allows you to run mobile stations, or take photos in hard-to-reach places (for example, tripods with a height of 10 m). The studio is equipped with two professional shooting drones - DJI Phantom 4 Pro. We have a ULC - UAV VLOS certificate that allows you to perform work with the help of drones. Thanks to this technology, we can make maps of areas, parks, as well as 3D models of buildings, photogrammetry buildings.
