Vacuum Table

The vacuum table is a system for acquiring two-dimensional documents. Created within Fondazione Cini, gives a response to the need to digitise large-format documents, delicate, creased or folded. The system flattens the folds only long enough for the shot, improving the readability of the documents and avoiding excessive shadows and distortions, without damaging the assets. The vacuum table set uses a 50.6-megapixel Canon EOS 5DS R camera, controlled by a connected computer for remote acquisition operations and settings.

This innovative technology makes it possible to capture assets that would otherwise be challenging to read and keep in position, such as maps and technical drawings, preserving them for future generations.
