The Smithsonian turned to conveyor belts, cameras to digitize its many artifacts

from the Washington Post

We’re using a conveyor belt system to digitize these. We bring out 30 or 40 boxes a day, set them at the end of the conveyor belt, and one of the operators will pull out one sheet after another and put them on the conveyor belt. They go down the conveyor belt to the shoot station, where there is an 80-megapixel camera. The proof will then stop at the end of the conveyor belt, and the conveyor belt stops until the operator at the end of the conveyor belt pulls it off and puts it back in a box.
