Northmann’s unique Digital Master technology where images are stored along with any clipping paths and colour corrections offers you a high degree of flexibility. Having only one digital master means that you avoid storing duplicates and thereby eliminating the risk of using the wrong image. Store Once Use Many. A quality of our technology is that any person who can handle a computer can order images in the size and file format they need. The output part of our systems is designed for plug and play over the Internet.
If you choose to establish an RGB based workflow it will, in the vast majority of cases, allow you to distribute high-resolution images via a local area network far more effectively and efficiently. And at the same time make more effective use of image storage space.
It is normally possible to transmit files without extending the existing band width because assets stored in Northmann’s RGB technology take up much less space. When a job is completed, all specifications and any alterations made are stored as an instruction (meta data) together with the asset. The instruction takes up minimal space. That explains why our system normally requires 25-50% less transmission capacity than other systems.
You do not necessarily have to go in to RGB if you want to implement our system. However, you will get extra benefit by doing so. The progress of digital cameras and the acceptance of digital imaging by photographers are increasing the benefits very fast.
