Creekside Digital’s new website is LIVE!

Yesterday, we “flipped the switch” on our new website. The old homegrown site had served us well throughout the first part of our company’s existence, but we have aggressively grown over the past year and required something which better described our new capabilities to current and potential customers. Kudos to Cloud Nine Labs for working with us to build exactly what we wanted.

We’ve had lots of different kinds of projects going in and out of the shop lately, the largest of which is a 137 roll newspaper conversion including NDNP-specification scanning. This means uncompressed 8-bit TIFF Master files between 300-400dpi (depending on the reduction ratio of the film), which gives us really huge images — 30 to 60 MB each. Then of course, there are several other derivatives, but none are nearly as large as the TIFFs. We conservatively estimate that the final project will consume approximately 5.5 TB of disk space.

Creekside Digital is attending ALA 2010 in DC!

Also, Creekside Digital will be attending the American Library Association 2010 Annual Conference this weekend in nearby Washington DC. We look forward to seeing old friends and making some new ones there!

Now for some music with #smithsonianmusic! We're currently working with National Museum of American History Archives Center to digitize thousands of posters related to WWI and WWII, including this troop morale poster from 1917: collections.si.edu/search/detail/edanmdm:siris_arc_176697

According to an article from the New York Times published in the fall of 1918, the Phonograph Records Recruiting Corps was created by Vivien Burnett, son of novelist and playwright Frances Hodgson Burnett, to collect records, machines, and needles to provide music to soldiers overseas during WWI, by recruiting and drafting "slacker records."
