The DT Difference
We founded Digital Transitions in 2003, with one simple belief – when you invest in the best digital imaging systems in the world, you deserve more than a camera. You deserve a solution. So we brought together a team of passionate sales professionals who actually use every piece of equipment they recommend. We built a award-winning support staff to bring you customized one-on-one training and real-time troubleshooting, so you can focus on what matters. We even curate an ongoing series of unique experiences for our elite community of MAXResolution members, with exclusive events at our showrooms in NYC and LA, and workshops and road-shows everywhere in between. And while no two clients are the same, we’ve found that they all have one thing in common – they all demand the best.
And 15 years later, we’re still delivering, every day.
Digital Transitions. Because the Best Deserve the Best.
As DT has expanded into increasingly diverse and demanding markets, our team has grown rapidly to continue to provide the professional support and expertise that every DT client deserves. All of our team members are experts in their field and are committed to helping you achieve your imaging goals quickly and thoroughly. Our people and culture of excellence are what make the DT experience the best in the industry.
