Covid-19 Update

Max are pleased to confirm that our teams are still fully operational in line with the latest government guidelines. This includes our off-site team at ONS. We do understand, however, that for many businesses and institutions this is unfortunately still not the case. We continue to wish you well during this difficult period and look forward to somewhat easier times, hopefully by Spring 2021.

If you would like to schedule a call for a future date, please complete our contact form indicating a preferred day. We have decided to freeze our prices until May 1st 2021 to ensure that our customers are not penalised by the ongoing restrictions. We may decide to extend this date further still.

In the meantime, please do take a look at our podcasts page . The passion, enthusiasm and insight from our guest speakers has been inspirational, especially given the circumstances.

Artwork Digitisation

Artwork Digitisation
Artwork Digitisation completed for the Royal Scottish Academy

One of our highlights, not just in terms of Artwork Digitisation but in terms of our work as a whole, was a commission by the artist Ralph Heimans to digitally capture his official Diamond Jubilee Portrait of the Queen. Ralph required a high-resolution image of the painting, showing brush stroke detail. The portrait measured over 3.5 by 2.5 metres creating quite a challenge.

Using a top of the range Hasselblad camera we captured multiple photographs, precisely and systematically. These photographs were then stitched together to form a 1.5Gb fully colour-calibrated master digital image. The original portrait is now hung in Westminster Abbey, London. The digital image is viewed world-wide.

We extend this same level of care and precision to all artwork digitisation projects and, indeed, to all the digitisation services we provide. These include Sir Quentin Blake’s beautiful original illustrations, taken from his archive of over 20,000 drawings.

Artwork Digitisation Customers

Other collections include:

  • Original drawings by Edward Lear for the Folio Society
  • National Maritime Museum
  • Palace of Westminster
  • Royal Academy of Music
  • Manx Heritage Museum
