Digital imaging is a process of creating digital images such as printed texts, photographs or networks through the use of image machine, manuscripts, artwork or digital camera. In other words, digital imaging is a method by which the content of a file or document is digitized and converted into a readable digital format from an analog format. Digital imaging systems is a complete digitization solution suitable for unique and valuable cultural heritage objects. The digital imaging is used by digital humanities researchers and institutions for digitization of treasures or valuable objects. The digital image is sampled and mapped as a network of picture elements or dots. Digital imaging system conducts all operations from input to output in digital form. It allows the electronic transmission of images to recipients such as referring dentists, third-party providers, consultants, and insurance carriers through a modem. Digital imaging also includes digital videography and motion pictures. The digital imaging system includes various components such as image acquisition, image storage, image manipulation, image display, image networking and image recognition.
