Our Story

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.
