Vivid-Pix launches Memory Station at RootsTech 2022
Vivid-Pix announced at RootsTech, the world’s largest family history conference, the Vivid-Pix Memory Station one-click scanner/software bundle, marketed as an easy way to digitize, restore, and save precious print images at home, library, or communities. The Vivid-Pix Memory Station is available immediately through www.vivid-pix.com, for $599.99. The bundle is comprised of a ScanSnap SV600 Scanner and Vivid-Pix’s RESTORE software for Mac and for Windows.
Don’t store your memories in a shoebox
“For over a century, we’ve taken pictures,” said Rick Voight, CEO, Vivid-Pix. “Unfortunately, these memories are often stored in shoeboxes and albums – never to see the light of day or shared. This is not why we took photos. But it’s a chore to scan and do more with these treasured keepsakes. Right? Not anymore!”
“Simply press the blue scanner button and digitize up to 10 images at one time,” said Michael Sidejas, Director of Product Management, ScanSnap, Fujitsu Computer Products of America. “After saving, just open Vivid-Pix’s patented RESTORE software and click a button to automatically fix color, black and white, and sepia photos and documents to vibrantly bring them back to life.”
Pilot programs at Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center and Thrive Center
Vivid-Pix piloted the Memory Station at two of the most prestigious locations in the United States: The Genealogy Center at Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana, which is the largest genealogy center in a public library in America, and the Thrive Center in Louisville, Kentucky, a nationally recognized technology testing location for health organizations).
“When Rick described the Memory Station and how it can help our patrons as well as the community, we immediately understood and wanted to participate,” said Curt Witcher, Director of Special Collections and Genealogy Center Manager. “We’ve gotten to know Vivid-Pix well over the past few years. Their willingness to listen to patrons, family historians, and library ideas, and then adapt their product to these desires has been refreshing and collaborative.”
“Thrive Center is a nationally recognized technology testing location to assist individuals, caregivers, and living facilities,” said Sheri Rose, CEO/executive director, Thrive Center. “The Vivid-Pix Memory Station is a wonderful way for older adults to reminisce and relive a lifetime of memories and joy. This is the second solution that Vivid-Pix has installed in our facility. Its ease of use makes it a great way for individuals and organizations to reminisce and reconnect with loved ones.”
