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.

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.

A Microfiche Machine Instead of Microfiche Viewer

The difference between a microfiche viewer and a microfiche machine that scans microfiche cards is in the resulting file. A microfiche viewer lets you view an image by projecting the information on a screen. If you want to view a second image, you move the microfiche to a different position. This type of microfiche machine is totally manual and can not store any information for later use. A microfiche machine that scans has many advantages. These microfiche machines are called microfiche scanners. This microfiche machine is designed to create a digital file of the images. When a microfiche machine creates a pdf or jpeg image, you can store the resulting image on a computer for viewing and for later use.

Microfiche Machines That Really Work

A Microfiche machine is very expensive and I don’t recommend you go buy a microfiche scanner for scanning a few microfiche cards. Instead, you can contact a company that has a microfiche machine for scanning microfiche cards, and have them convert your microfiche. Companies that have a microfiche machine can make whatever type file you like from your microfiche. Since they already have a microfiche machine, they can charge you a very low microfiche scanning cost to convert your microfiche. This is the most economical method to convert your microfiche cards.

It is recommended that you find the right company with a microfiche machine but also with reputation  and integrity. The microfiche machine should be high quality and the operators need to be experts. You can read more about this services in related article or you can give us a call. CONTACT US
