Local firm takes Bible into the digital age
[Excerpt from the article]
...Today, Pritchett and his company deal in terabytes. A terabyte is 1,000 gigabytes, and a gigabyte is 1,000 megabytes.
At that level, he said, the computer's power of information storage and retrieval often exceeds a person's ability to think up ways to use that power. Desktop machines now have storage capacity that would have been unimaginable 15 years ago...
For Logos, that means going beyond the basic biblical text to offer customers every scholarly work on the Bible that is in existence.
Logos' offerings are now up to 4,000 volumes, but that's just the beginning. The company is now in the process of scanning 20,000 volumes in a seminary library - a process that will take years, even with automated scanning equipment that can input 1,200 pages per hour.
Technology enables Pritchett's company to offer its customers everything in its specialty area.
