On 12 April 2018, the UNESCO Archives' Digitization Laboratory hosted a visit by officials of the Government of Japan, current sponsor of the 'Digitizing Our Shared UNESCO History' project. This was an opportunity to show our sponsor the different activities happening in the lab, from preparation, to digitization and quality control, etc.
The UNESCO Archives presented a series of beautiful images from an IICI archives file concerning the book "Art, Life and Nature in Japan" by Japanese scholar Masaharu Anesaki. The digitized file is already online, and dates from the 1930s.
Also in slideshow above, you'll see pictures of a projection of the laboratory installation timelapse video, and the demonstration of the video digitization work station, including the UMATIC baking oven.
Once again, we wish to sincerely thank the People of Japan for their generous support of the digitization project to safeguard UNESCO's documentary heritage.
