Memory Station by Vivid-pix a game-changing solution for digitizing and enhancing cherished memories
In an era where memories are often relegated to dusty attics or shoeboxes filled with fading photographs, the rise of the Memory Station by Vivid-Pix offers a refreshing solution. It’s a game-changer for those looking to digitize cherished moments, artwork, documents, and more.
Let’s explore how this innovation is breathing new life into our treasured memories.
Many of us possess extensive collections of photographs and memorabilia tucked away in corners of our homes, gathering dust or stored in attics, closets, or shoeboxes. These memories are often left untouched, slowly fading away over time due to improper storage or exposure to the elements. Tragically, some have even lost precious mementos to disasters like fires or floods.
It makes you wonder why we haven’t just digitized these invaluable memories. The answer is quite simple: the process has traditionally been cumbersome, time-consuming, and expensive. The Memory Station by Vivid-Pix is changing that.

The Memory Station offers an all-in-one bundled solution that simplifies the process of preserving and sharing your cherished memories. One bundle combines a Ricoh (formerly Fujitsu) SV600 overhead scanner with Vivid-Pix’s proprietary patented AI-enhanced restoration software, RESTORE. Together, they empower anyone with a PC or Mac to scan, restore, store, and share their precious memories effortlessly.
What sets the Memory Station apart is its versatility. Unlike traditional flatbed scanners, this overhead scanner doesn’t touch the surface of your photographs or artwork. It comes with a notched soft black pad that designates the scanning area of an A3 document, effectively 17 inches x 11.8 inches (432 x 300 mm). This means you can scan items like books up to 1.18 inches (30mm) thick without causing damage.
The scanning process is intuitive and efficient, allowing you to simultaneously capture multiple images of different shapes and sizes. Multi-item detection identifies each image, making it easy to name, separate, and store them as individual files. For repetitive scans, the Timed Mode eliminates the need to press the scan button repeatedly.
The Memory Station simplifies the process for those interested in scanning albums, magazines, or books. You no longer need to dismantle bindings, split seams, or tear out pages. Page-Turning Detection initiates scanning as you turn each page, keeping your hands free. The Point-Correction feature even erases unwanted appendages from scanned images.
Advanced features like Automatic colour and size detection, automatic rotation, de-skewing, and blank page removal streamline the scanning process further. Once you’re set up, simply press the blue button on the scanner to begin.
The true magic of the Memory Station comes to life with Vivid-Pix’s RESTORE Software. After scanning your images, this software enables you to enhance and revitalize them effortlessly. The user-friendly interface offers a range of controls for adjusting lighting, contrast, sharpness, and colour type (colour, black and white, or sepia).
RESTORE’s proprietary algorithm generates nine possible enhanced images as a starting point, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your preferences. The software also supports tilt or rotation adjustments and even features Point-Correction to eliminate unwanted image elements.
The entire process, from scanning to image enhancement, is remarkably straightforward. You can save your settings for similar photos, saving time on subsequent scans. RESTORE supports various file formats and size options and allows you to view or edit metadata for added organization.
Once your memories are digitized and enhanced, you can store them on your computer, upload them to the cloud, or share them with friends and family. It’s that easy.
For Windows users, the Memory Station Software offers an even more user-friendly experience. It incorporates additional AI algorithms, simplifies image importing directly from the scanner, and even allows you to record a voice memory to accompany your images. With just a few clicks, you can Scan, Fix, Record, Save, and Share your memories.
The Memory Station by Vivid-Pix is a versatile and accessible solution for everyone. Whether you’re preserving family memories, digitizing artwork, or documenting historical documents, it offers a cost-effective and user-friendly way to safeguard these treasures for future generations.
Prices for bundles start at C$769.95 on Vivid-Pix.com, and you can also purchase the scanner and software separately. Commercial software licenses are available as well.
To ensure impeccable scans, you can optionally add a Memory Station Image Stabilizer for US$149.99. This museum-quality non-glare acrylic sheet holds multiple photos and documents flat, virtually eliminating reflections.
In a world where memories are priceless, the Memory Station by Vivid-Pix is bridging the gap between the past and the digital age. It’s a solution designed to bring old memories back to life and make preserving the past a seamless and enjoyable experience.
Whether for families, storytellers, photographers, or historical preservation, the Memory Station ensures that cherished memories stand the test of time.
