Expanding Year After Year

Generation Imaging has the fastest growing client list in the industry and has glowing testimonials from real and satisfied clients. There would be more testimonials, but the bulk of Generation Imaging’s customers are other scanning service bureaus who subcontract work or middle-men or middle-women who resell or subcontract microfilm and microfiche projects. In other words, many of Generation Imaging’s clients must maintain confidentiality and anonymity.

Give Trust and Get Trust

Generation Imaging’s founders believe in and practice trust. G.I. will not “go after” a project if you request for a quote. For example, if you are a reseller or another scanning service bureau and tell us that you are trying to get a project from a specific library, Generation Imaging will not attempt to bypass you and steal your lead.

If you don’t want to take our word for it, you can read the testimonials or check G.I.’s reputation online.  G.I. will gladly sign a confidentiality agreement (nondisclosure contract) if you or your corporation does not want to take our word. G.I. won’t take it personally- we work for you, not against you.

Generation Imaging hopes you have a healthy and prosperous new year. CONTACT US

Converting School Records to PDF

Scanning School Records is Our Speciality

convert college records

Generation Imaging is your one-stop provider for converting school records, including permanent record cards. We have helped numerous schools and school districts by scanning their records to PDF, JPEG, or TIFF.  The benefits are threefold: 1) disaster recovery; 2) space; and 3) instant retrieval.

Most schools keep their student records and personnel records  under lock and key, however they have no backup or contingency plan for a disaster. Sending the permanent records to Generation can solve that problem. Digitizing the records will allow the school to have electronic copies which can be loaded unto multiple computers, server, CD, or DVD.

 

There’s no question that an older school, college, or university can easily run out of room, especially with paper records. Even microfilmed school records cost space. However, converting records to digital eliminates the need to dedicate rooms for storage.

The third major benefit of converting school records to digital images is instant retrieval: no more hunting and searching through draws or using microfilm viewers. With digital school records, the images can be named by student, teacher, SSN, policy number, or other field. Once the school has the converted records, the files can be e-mailed and printed easily.

School, universities, and colleges have different methods of storing their permanent record cards. The media could be paper documents, manila envelopes, microfiche, or microfilm.

Although the end result is the same, the actual processes to convert documents to image, microfiche to image, or microfiche to image various and use different scanners. CONTACT US

Archival Services For Creating Microfilm

Archival services for documents or image files can generate microfilm that you can store for a very long time. This process allows you to save a true copy of the original information. We can assist you if you are planning on using archival services and you need to find out what it costs or what archival services options are available for you.

Create Microfilm With Archival Services

Large format archival services is used to transfer zoning maps, engineering maps and other types of documents that are oversize. E size drawings are reduced about 12 times and required 35mm microfilm. We can microfilm your large format and without scanning them, but if you need digital images also, we are experts at microfilm scanning as well. Archival services of smaller documents is very common for transferring pdf files to 16 mm microfilm.

We do not recommend you try to start your own archival services for your in-house needs. Archival services requires the use of chemicals for film developing. Unless you already have zoning permits and licensing from your local government, getting all this set up can be challenging. If you need archival services for a specific project or you have on-going needs, try contacting a qualified company that offers archival services. You may need to specify certain microfilm requirements and reduction issues. You may also want to have the microfilm duplicated. A duplicate roll from the original is very inexpensive to make and a good archival services company should offer this option as well.
