Kirtas Technologies high-quality, digital imaging services are now available to museums, art galleries and historical societies Natalie Russo joins the team as an imaging specialist dedicated to museums

MAY 6, 2009 – For several years, Kirtas Technologies has provided digitizing systems, services and software to university and public libraries, corporations, government agencies, and other organizations requiring outstanding quality digital images for their rare and out-of-print books, manuscripts and other important documents.

So why wouldn’t we offer that same high-quality, digital imaging workflow to museums, art galleries, historical societies and archives around the world? With the addition of SkyView—the company’s first digitization system for oversized documents and materials—these organizations can now digitize not only books in their libraries or that are part of an exhibit collection, but also large maps, photographs, works on paper, postcards, oversize books, books with foldouts, and even three-dimensional artifacts for cataloging purposes and the creation of online exhibits.

In addition to the company’s debut at AAM Expo, Kirtas announces that Natalie Russo has joined the company as an imaging expert with experience in museum photography and fine-art reproduction.

Prior to joining the Kirtas team, she worked as a photographer at the Yale University Art Gallery; the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City; and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Connecticut.

“I’m very excited to be a part of the Kirtas team,” Russo said. “My entire education and work experience has been focused on high-quality, digital imaging. To now be working for a company that shares that passion and sees the significance and importance of it is really thrilling for me.”

One of the highlights of her career thus far, was working at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. Russo spent two years working on the collection relocation of photographs, art and artifacts from the museum’s location in the Bronx to its new home in Washington, D.C.

Russo attended Rochester Institute of Technology. She holds a Master’s in Print Media with a concentration in Color Science focusing on digital imaging work flows and fine art reproduction. She also has a Bachelor’s degree in Photography.
