Scanning Equipment
The sensitivity of the scanning equipment is vitally important! Our eyes have a dynamic range of about a million to one. The DpsDave scanning equipment has a dynamic range of 500,000 to 1, and separates DpsDave from the others, who can deliver dynamic ranges of only 64,000 to one. This equipment was developed by DpsDave to address a deficiency associated with photo scanning technology, and is available only from DpsDave.

Computer Processes
The data file produced by the DpsDave scanners is a 100MB file, which to too large for most people to use, and in a format that generally available software can’t read. In addition, the DpsDave scanning equipment recorded levels of detail which exceeds what can be shown on modern electronic displays, but does not exceed the ability of modern printers to print. Finally, the dyes used in the slide film are unstable, and have changed over time. Therefore, after each slide is scanned, the DpsDave computers perform over a Billion operations on each image. The result of all this computer work is that the image:
1. Returns to what it looked life before the dyes faded (to the extent possible).
2. Looks good on today’s electronic displays
3. Will look as good on future electronic displays (with improved performance)
4. Looks good when printed, and looks like what you see on the electronic displays
5. Will be compatible with all photo viewing programs on all computers around the world
6. Preserves all the detail contained in the original data file.
7. Will be able to move across the internet freely
8. Will preserve the copy-write privileges of the owner
9. Will be future proof, so that the files will always be readable, viewable, printable & shareable.
The images we will send you are JPEG files, and will be 3 to 5 MB each. Note that JPEG represents many different of compression algorithms, and we use the “Loss-less” version.
