World Class Rapid Digitization of

Cultural Heritage

Our company

Picturae has one goal: to help the heritage sector (archives, museums, libraries, etc.) in a professional way to present its digital collections. With two constants: high quality for a reasonable price.

History

History

Pictura, originated in 1998, consisted originally out of two separate companies being Pictura Imaginis and Pictura Database Publishing. An investment by Endeit Capital (the investment firm of Joop van den Ende and Hubert Deitmers) in 2011 made it possible to realize our growth ambitions, both nationally as well as internationally. Working closely together and to be prepared for further expansion, our two innovative group companies merged mid-2012 and continued with one new company name, being Picturae (plural Latin of Pictura). To further broaden our proposition with the digitization of audio-visual material, we acquired the Amsterdam based company Supersens early 2013. To centralize all activities and to improve efficiency we moved all activities to one new location in Heiloo at the beginning of 2015. As a next step, MicroFormat Systems, well-known since 1993 for its Metamorphic projects and the digitization of Microfilm and –fiche, was acquired in January 2017.

ISO

Picturae is certified for ISO ISO 9001 (Quality Management) ISO 27001 (Information Security) and ISO 14001 (Environmental) ISO Standards. Each year, an independent party judges all of our procedures. However, to us the ISO certification is more than just a plaque on the wall. Safeguarding quality, sustainability and information security is a task for the whole company and every employee is aware of the importance. Therefore our customers can rely on our high quality. The ISO checkup is a great way to test whether we can guarantee and fulfill this trust.
ISO
Partnership

Picturae has a lot of experience. However, only due to our business partners we can guarantee the best solution for our customers in every phase of their projects. Picturae collaborates with, i.a., Alpere Technologies and Data Esperto for data entry and content enrichment, with Alembo for transcribing Herbaria collections. Also, we are partner of Kakadu Software (world leader in JPEG2000 technology). Additionally, we cooperate with web agencies, camera suppliers as PhaseOne and partners in ICT and infrastructure such as EuroFiber
