Heritage Digitization

At MEMORIST, we breathe new life into heritage and the digitization of materials and solutions to preserve your precious memories. Our meticulous processes ensure the integrity of every item, while our 3D digitization brings architecture and artwork to life.


Our mission is to preserve and enhance the value of paper heritage, whatever the medium, through digital document conservation.

We treat all types of collections:

  • Printed books, old newspapers, pamphlets and magazines
  • Medieval manuscripts and incunabula
  • Catalogs, technical documentation
  • Registers: resolutions, civil status, military registration
  • Heritage collections.

Our 70 high-definition heritage scanners form the largest heritage digization tool fleet in Europe. It is equipped to handle all types of formats, from postal stamps to documents measuring more than one meter.

We also operate digitization workshops at our customers’ premises (customized solutions).




We process graphic documents (drawings, tracings) and iconographic documents (photos of all types: glass plates, nitrates, acetates).

Our main concern is to retrain the integrity of graphic or iconographic documents with the implementation of rigorous procedures.

For negatives, our teams of photographers ensure visual balancing from the most complex media and appropriate corrections.

Thanks to our proven training methods and our travelling trainers, we train local teams in the heritage techniques of digitization.


Pack shot/ 360° digitization

The pack shot is a shooting studio adapted to the nature of the object to be photographed (haute-couture collections, bottles, archaeological pieces, jewellery…). This technique also makes it possible to carry out 360° captures allowing to animate the object.
