Through the Images for the Future project the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision was given the opportunity to digitise large parts of their collections. The sheer size and numbers of material, combined with the necessity of a European Tender procedure, forced Sound and Vision to rethink work processes and workflows.

The photographic department has by now gathered experience in two Tender procedures where the digitisation of more than a million negatives was commissioned.

The general conclusion is that time and money spend on preparing your collection and your workflow with the digitisation process in mind will be earned back easily as the supplier will be able to optimise and automate their work process and more precisely calculate their risk, which will result in a lower price.

This approach can be applied to smaller digitisation project as well, with the same result: Digitise More, Pay Less.
