Manila Typesetting Companyprovides services from document imaging (scanning) and editing to overall document enhancement. In doing so, MTC helps publishers enhance the value of the captured images in subsequent uses of the information, such as JPEG and PDF files.
Since the 1990s, "document imaging" has been used to describe software-based computer systems that capture, store and reprint images. The software directs scanners to move a finely focused beam of light or electrons in a systematic pattern over the surface of an object in order to reproduce and subsequently transmit an image. As of 2009, a high-end flatbed scanner can scan up to 5400 ppi and drum scanners have an optical resolution of between 3,000 and 24,000 ppi.
MTC staff members working in imaging are acutely aware of the accuracy needed to produce quality scanning in terms of color depth, purity, and density range. They are highly proficient in document preparation and quality assurance monitoring. The end results are JPEG files that fulfill publisher requests for high production quality, legible digital images.
The value-added process goals in scanning are:
increased speed to reduce cycle time, and
improved image quality, file sizes, and color.
MTC strives to achieve all three goals for each and every project.
