Why Microfilm Conversion to Digital Images?
Convenience - Let us accept it, obtaining microfilm records is a headache. The microfilm roll needs to be pulled, loaded onto the microfilm reader, and then the appropriate image must be located. If the microfilm records need to be utilized regularly, and significant time benefits will be gained from the microfilm conversion.
Microfilm Deterioration - Over time microfilm tends to decrease, especially if it is not saved in favorable storage environment. We have seen situations where important records have been completely missing due to complete deterioration of the microfilm. In less extreme situations, the picture quality can simply decrease to the point where it is no longer readable.
Storage Support - As new microfilm development is phased out; the variety of organizations supporting microfilm readers is decreasing. In some cases, the cost of supporting or buying a new microfilm reader will pay for the cost of microfilm conversion.
We can provide your scanned images back to you in any format you prefer. For more information about microfilm scanning visit at: http://www.thedocumentscanning.com/
