Sending Your Microfilm or Microfiche Projects Overseas? Read This First!

The Reality of Outsourcing Microfilm Scanning (U.S. Domestic vs Overseas)

Guest Article by Tony Simon

sending microfilm overseas

There is a huge misconception about outsourcing microfilm scanning work overseas to China, India, and other Asian countries: mainly that it is cheaper to send microfilm and microfiche work abroad than to get that work completed in the U.S. or Canada.  Let’s look at some reasons why this is a misconception, and a great alternative.

Reason #1: Shipping Costs

If you are sending boxes and boxes of heavy microfilm or microfiche, you can bet that the shipping costs alone will eat away at the savings you get using a company that scans microfilm overseas.

Reason #2: Quality

As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.  When you are sending microfilm conversion work to a company far, far away, the risk is higher that the quality of the work will not be up to your standards.  If this is a problem, you will be arguing with a person on the other side of the plan to rescan your images.

Reason #3: Your Microfilm is Half a World Away

Do you really want your precious microfilm copy of your documents sent on a boat or a plane to some far off place?  Sure, you can duplicate the images and send the dupes to be scanned.  However, duplicate copies of microfilm or microfiche are lower quality than originals.  Is that what you want: unreadable digital images that force you to go back to the original microfilm?

The solution: Generation Imaging

With Generation Imaging, you can ship original microfilm and microfiche with confidence that the images will be scanned and stored within the United States, in a secure location. Even if you send duplicates, the expert scanner operators at Generation Imaging will use their years of experience to give you the best image quality possible.

When it comes to shipping, the cost will be less expensive to send your microfilm scanning project to Generation Imaging if you are anywhere in North America or the Caribbean.

Quality control is a top priority at Generation Imaging.  With our state-of-the-art NextScan machines and software, we are able to insure that your microfilm and microfiche conversion project will be clean and complete.  If you do encounter problems or have any questions, our service representatives are ready to assist you and resolve any issues as quickly as possible.  Plus, with Generation Imaging residing in Florida, you have the knowledge that you could personally visit the production facility with relative ease: no 20 hour flights around the globe and crazy jet lag!

Generation Imaging Is The Complete Microfilm Scanning Service Provider

A recent search for Microfilm Scanning Services suggests that many people are looking for some sort of microfilm to digital conversion but may be getting confused with the various naming conventions. It is easy to get lost in the lingo. The difference between microfilm to digital conversion and microfilm conversion to digital, as well as other expressions, all relate to the more general term of microfilm scanning services. However, a microfilm scanning service provider like Generation Imaging can provide many other services that all fall under the umbrella. Microfilm scanning services can also include many other microfilm conversion to digital such as 16mm microfilm to digital conversion, 35mm microfilm conversion to digital and many other microfilm types.Generation Imaging Is The Complete Microfilm Scanning Service Provider

An organization or individual searching for a microfilm scanning service does not need to be an expert in this matter, and should do the best in finding one. Finding a true microfilm scanning service provider helps eliminate some frustrations down the line. As an example, I have talked to customers that needed a microfilm to digital conversion. After further clarification, the customer actually needed a company that had various types of digital microfilm scanners. In this case, the customer identified the source as one type of microfilm when in fact, he had various types that required different microfilm to digital conversion methods. Generation Imaging is a true microfilm scanning service provider equipped with the proper digital microfilm scanners to support all of the customers need.

Microfilm scanning services in today’s age go much further than the traditional microfilm to digital conversion. There are many other things to consider before and after the microfilm conversion to a digital formats. In most instances, the end user is only interested in the end result. For example, John from the genealogical society, wants to transfer his microfilm records to digital so that he can provide all the records online to many interested users. He contacts a microfilm scanning service provider for the solution. Although he has a clear goal, the microfilm scanning service company should provide guidance to keep John out of trouble. A successful microfilm scanning service company should find out how John will be searching for the information and offer solutions like OCR (optical character recognition ), or some other type if indexing format. Also, the microfilm scanning service providers needs to be able to perform microfilm to digital conversion on all of the different types of microfilm that John has in storage so that his image library may be complete. To support this, the microfilm scanning service provider needs to be equipped with digital microfilm scanners for 16mm microfilm, 35mm microfilm, and many other microfilm types.

In addition to indexing and OCR, a microfilm scanning service company should be able to perform data processing to achieve the ultimate goal. After the microfilm to digital conversion is complete, and the data has been indexed according to specifications, the final product may required that the images get wrapped into multi-page pdf files, or some other file structure. The microfilm scanning service providers should be able to handle all of the necessary steps to achieve the best possible results that our current technology offers.
