Caption: Digital restoration. Researcher archiving and restoring a medieval music manuscript onto a computer. She is using two large monitor displays to observe digital scans. A row of external hard drives in front of her stores the digital files, which can reach 250 megabytes in size each. This is part of the Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music (DIAMM) based at Oxford University, England. The DIAMM project aims to record polyphonic medieval music manuscripts into digital format using a high resolution purpose- built digital scanner. In cases where manuscripts are damaged or obscured by overwritten layers, the researcher uses Adobe Photoshop and other software to manually re-touch and expose hidden layers.
