Convert Your Microfilm and Microfiche to Digital Files
Gain quicker access to microfilm and microfiche images through high quality, affordable digital conversion. With multiple file output types available, black and white or gray-scale options, optional optical character recognition (OCR), and custom indexing, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for immediately.
You can still keep the microfilm rolls and microfiche sheets to meet your retention requirements. But, you won’t have to load them up on a reader just to find the information you’re looking for. And, because you’ll have easy-to-find image files, you’ll also be able to share them easily, with colleagues, customers, or the public, as necessary. Digitization will also help you preserve images on reels and fiche cards that are deteriorating due to vinegar syndrome or other issues.
With OCR, you can have fully text-searchable documents. Locate names, phrases, and topics with ease.
Digital conversion allows for rapid access to the document you’re looking for. We can convert images to PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and more.
Microfilm and microfiche are great, reliable archive mediums, but they compromise on ease-of-use and accessibility. With digitization, you can have both without giving up anything.
As with our document scanning services, we’ll tailor the project to your needs. Index fields, output type, document breaking, etc., can all be customized. In addition to capturing fields with OCR, we also offer hand-keyed indexing (manual indexing). Manual indexing is more reliable than OCR for fading images, but is especially necessary for anything handwritten.
