(Beyond Treatment) Cross Platform Use of iPads in Stained Glass Conservation Treatment & Documentation

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Historically stained glass conservation has used paper documentation. But, the level of complexity in working on monumental windows, as well as our increased team size led Nzilani to develop a real-time digital documentation system using iPads.

Our upgraded documentation system includes using an in-house customized app on iPads to document our work onsite (translated instantaneously to the studio team via the internet). Base documents are then updated and used as reference throughout the treatment process, and eventually become our final treatment books with less reformatting than before. All information gathered and updated throughout the project is easily translated into final formatting software to create a finished and polished treatment document with much more detail and quality than before… and in less time.
