Her Majesty's Theatre

Her Majesty's Theatre (HMT) is one of Melbourne's prestige heritage theatres, home to live theatre for over 125 years. Digitising important and precious archives of Melbourne's rich and lively theatre history is also an important activity at HMT. Recently, we proudly unveiled an enlarged photo portrait of one of Australia's important Variety Performers from the 1930's in our foyers. Several important guests stood around admiring this portrait, remarking on the quality, sharpness of image. Even the donor of the original photo couldn't believe that it was from the original as that was much smaller, but this was huge and crystal clear! For those that asked, they were surprised to learn that we scanned it on our "photocopier" from DDS SHARP. While some questioned whether we "touched the image up" after scanning, another stated how difficult it would have been to have arrived at the same definition using an old technology developing enlarger.

In any case, we at Her Majesty's Theatre are extremely thrilled with the outcome, to have this kind of capacity "in-house" helps us record important Melbourne theatrical history, and put it on display for all of us to remember it. Of course it is comforting to know that our multitasking machine can also do humble jobs like photocopy etc.

Thanks to DDS and staff whose highly personalised service took time to understand our needs as a Theatre, and devise a list of various devises that suit our needs together with the most competitive price and service standards. DDS SHARP's passion to provide quality equipment with is well matched to our passion to provide Melbourne's premium live theatre.
