Our goal is to promote and enhance IIIF server technology for access and archiving. We are about to use the concept of on the fly transcoding for video as well, to be able to offer a full feature media sever, optimized for archival purposes. We have developed a high performance, iiif complaint image server.
| International Image Interoperability Framework
We are RDF experts and have rich knowledge in designing ontologies and performant data base designs, that fulfill the highest needs regarding interoperability and simply maintenance. We operate the Data and Service Center for the Humanities (DaSCH), an RDF based database (dasch.swiss).
| Database and Data Modeling
We are using WebGL for the visualization of image data, e.g. gained from Reflectance Transformation Imaging or other photographically gained textures that can be applied on 3D meshes. WebGL is a promising approach for data visualization of any kind (https://experiments.withgoogle.com/collection/chrome). Do you want to know more about WebGL, get in contact with us
| Web Graphics Library
We have a deep knowledge in color science, color transforms and color perception. We are doing research in color vision and high fidelity color measurements and renderings in the context of Cultural Heritage Imaging

Our roots are scientific photography and we still take care on that topic. We have rich knowledge in analogue and digital photography, the photogrpahic transition, studio techniques, reproduction of artwork and new computational methods. Do you want to know more about photography, get in contact with us.
| Analogue and Digital Photography
We are pioneers in digital preservation, developed bits-on-film solutions like Monolith™ or Distarnet, the storage networks for automatic redundancy balancing and migration. We are the host of the TI/A initiative. Do you want to know more about digital
| Digital Preservation and Access
We did multiple industry projects to enhance scanners for motion picture, sound and photography. Due to our knowledge in optics and electrical engineering we are able to find pragmatic solutions and to develop new imaging devices: (https://broncolor.swiss/scope/, https://www.capcam.org/)
). Do you want to know more about imaging devices, get in contact with us.

Welcome to the Digital Humanities Lab
The Digital Humanities is an interdisciplinary institution of the University of Basel. Its task is to coordinate and promote research, teaching and infrastructure for digitisation in the humanities and social sciences. It is also a central institution in Switzerland for the theory and practice of the digital humanities and offers a Master's programme and a Doctorate in Digital Humanities.
