The value of Rapid Imaging is becoming readily apparent and more commonplace
in institutional settings, as a result the nature and methodology of Rapid
Imaging is evolving, driven by the needs of the user and available technology.
Sponsored by the Digital Media SIG as a follow-up to last year’s Rapid

Capture Digital Workflow panel: Speed the Plow, the original presenters will

return to give a “one year later” report on their continuing Rapid Imaging Projects.

The presenters, emphasizing what has changed, been upgraded, expanded or has stayed the

same, will illustrate their workflow, show resulting images, discuss
equipment choices and production totals with step-by-step descriptions,
illustrations, and thought process behind the decisions made.  Following the
individual presentations there will be ample time for discussion and
questions to the panel.
