High Resolution Scanning

high resolutions scanning

High resolution scanning is a specific type of professional digitization that scans images to 600 dots per inch (DPI) and higher. This kind of scanning can be used for many different kinds of images, objects, and documents. Scanning documents at a higher resolution means that they are clearer and have more detail, which may be a priority for some people looking to scan important materials.

High Resolution versus Low Resolution Scanning

High resolution scanning may be the best avenue for your project if you value high quality images and have the space to store larger digital files. The differences between high resolution and low resolution digitization revolve mainly around quality, time, and storage. Before choosing a scanning resolution, consider these crucial elements:

  1. Quality: Scanning at a higher amount of dots per inch renders a clearer image. This improves a person’s ability to view more intricate elements of an image. When a person zooms in on an image or views it from afar it will appear less pixelated and more in focus than something scanned at a lower resolution. This may be important if this project aims to preserve the integrity of an original image, art piece, or document. 
  2. Time: Scanning at a higher resolution may take slightly longer than opting for a lower quality file.It may only take a few extra seconds of minutes per page, but if you are planning to scan a large amount of materials this may increase turnaround time for a project. 
  3. Storage: The higher resolution something is scanned at, the larger the file size may be. This may pose challenges to sharing and posting as well as storing electronically. Scanning at a lower resolution will typically render the file size smaller and thus causing it to store as a smaller amount of data.

  4. Relax: Your chosen, trusted provider securely scans your materials without you needing to lift a finger. 
  5. Scanning: The professional scanning service uses a scanner with software that adds in extra pixels via interpolation. This increases the quality of the perceived image. Many at-home scanners are not capable of increasing the quality of scanned materials while professional high resolution digitization services are. 
  6. Return: The materials and files are returned to you in your preferred method. If you wish to store the materials in professional, off site facilities or destroy them via secure shredding, Record Nations can match you with a service that can assist you.
