The unique project “Digitizing device iReparo”, in which we cooperate with the Fraunhofer I.P.K. has an interesting history. It builds on the ePuzzler project, implemented by Fraunhofer I.P.K. based on the need for automatic reconstruction of damaged Secret Services documents that have been degraded after the peace revolution. This created a unique system that, thanks to its innovative processes, composes and revises document fragments.
ILC Factory a.s. and the “Digitizing device iReparo” project follows it in the Czech Republic.
The aim of the project is to create an original scanning device that will implement automatic high-value digital reconstruction of degraded documents, or fragments thereof. The device includes the function of digitizing unit, software equipment, optical module, specification of scanning processes and other parameters.
The very existence of the facility will mean the possibility of automatic reconstruction of historical, but also contemporary documents, or fragments, as well as their digital sorting and evaluation. This will bring a great cultural benefit not only for the Czech Republic. Thanks to this technology were in pilots projects successfully restored the degraded historical sources of the philosophical universal Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz, the Cologne archives, or the damaged bibliography of Anna Amalia Herzog in Weimar.
We perceive the "iReparo" project as an opportunity to discover parts of history for our future.
