Digital Darkrooms: Digital Reproduction Technologies
The digital darkrooms provide possibilities to pursue a workflow from scanning/digital image file to print-ready PDFs for books or mounted print-outs for exhibitions, etc. The digital darkrooms are located within a controlled environment with screens, viewing lighting etc, which are calibrated and follow international printing industry standards. This means that one has full control over the workflow and the expected outcome. To gain access to the workshops students must attend a brief introductory course. Print-out material can be purchased at the Storage for Technical Equipment.
