Visible Light Imaging is research-grade photography under controlled and thoroughly documented conditions, designed for maximum detail and used for examination and documentation of a cultural heritage artifact. Such imaging is highly detailed, free from distortion, with ideal lighting conditions and high-quality optics. The resulting images are stored in metadata-rich, non-proprietary formats that will serve as a research reference for decades.
