Digitization is the method of converting data and information into the digital format. In this specific format, data is organized into particular units of information, commonly known as bits that can be addressed uniquely and separately. This form of data is the binary data that the devices and the computers with computing ability such as digital camera, digital hearing assistance, etc. can be processed.
Content Digitization is basically the process in which all the contents are added to the website in the digital format. There are texts and lots of images inserted to make the content suitable for a digital platform. There is a scanner that is deployed into the platform to capture any form of image and turns it into an image document, such as the bitmap. OCR or Optical Character Recognition software analyzes the text files in order to determine each alphabetical character or numerical digit and turns each character into a code, usually known as ASCII codes.
Digitalizing information has become an important factor across all the industries and makes it quite easier to preserve, share, as well as access the information. For example, the original historical file may only be used or accessed by the people who pay a visit to its physical location, but in case the document is digitized, then it can be accessed by several people across the world within no time. There is a developing trend when it comes to the Digitization sector.
