Leading the team is Anne Barber, Digitization Project Manager. Anne and her team use the system across multiple disciplines to digitize collections, create content for exhibits, and enable new studies in education and research.

In this YouTube video produced by The California Academy of Sciences, Anne Barber talks about how they are using GIGAmacro to digitize collections.

The Magnify2 system was used to produce the engaging touchscreen content in the exhibition The Color of Life.
