What is LIMB Processing?

LIMB Processing is a complete solution to process, enrich and convert media into digital assets. It is the link between scanned images and many different end uses such as a digital library, long term archiving, eBook publishing and more.

LIMB Processing was developed with a dedication to the post processing of all cultural documents (books, archives, ledgers, newspapers, maps, photographs and artwork etc.). Existing image sets of TIFF or JPEG files can be processed right alongside newly digitized materials adding value to your content with new structural metadata. The easy to use interface has a variety of different parameters and settings that guides the user in a step by step process. 

LIMB Processing is fully compatible with images captured from any scanner
