Established since 1974, Genus is a private family-owned company, based in Nuneaton Warwickshire, with three digitisation studios, specifically designed for the capture of both heritage and modern material.
Genus is already well established in the historic vehicle community, having worked on digitisation projects for British Racing Motors, the Rootes Archive Centre Trust, Riley Cars Archive Heritage Trust, British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, Daimler and Lanchester Owners Club and the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust.
Classic car enthusiasts are in for a treat at this year's Classic Motor Show, taking place at the NEC from 10th to 12th November. Once again, Genus will be exhibiting their specialist digitisation services, and this year, they have a special guest that will give attendees an insight into some iconic motorsport history.
Joining Genus at the show will be British Racing Motors (BRM). Genus has worked with BRM for a number of years, helping them to digitise and promote their iconic archive, including the build of their own community engagement site (Recollect) which will be on display. This software allows visitors to view images and documents from the BRM archive and has given BRM the ability to enrich their collections, capture and manage new content, as well as discuss new ideas from anywhere in the world, whilst monetising some of their assets.
BRM will be showcasing their new BRM P15 V16 Supercharged Grand Prix car, Chassis 4. Originally built by BRM for Formula One motor racing in the immediate aftermath of World War II, the V16 was powered by a 1.5 litre supercharged V16 engine producing between 400-600bhp, and 12,000 RPM. Rule changes outlawed the cars but the V16 remained a truly distinctive and exceptional engine, renowned for its unparalleled sound. This remarkable piece of automotive history will be a highlight of the event. Britain’s original Formula 1 team, BRM, built three V16 race cars and have recently completed Chassis 4 as a brand-new build.
To make this exhibition even more special, Genus is offering a free white glove scanning service for rare documents. Visitors are encouraged to bring along 20-30 documents from their archives, up to A2 in size, which will be digitised while you wait. These can be photos, documents, engineering drawings, newsletters etc etc. The digitised documents will be uploaded on to a free memory stick for attendees to take home as a sample. These documents will be scanned on Genus’s own state-of-the-art Zeutschel OS A overhead scanner, guaranteeing consistently brilliant results. An in-house digitisation technician from Genus will also be on hand to ensure the quality and accuracy of the digitisation process.
