At SALIX, we can help you by digitizing the images from your microfilm, microfiche or aperture cards.
Microfilm (or microfiche) is a document preservation format that allows you to store large volumes of information without taking up a lot of storage space. By capturing miniature images of documents onto film, the physical size of the information is reduced without compromising any of the details. In doing so, entire years of information can be stored on just one small roll of film. At one time, microfilm was the preferred method of archival document storage.
Over the course of time, however, microfilm can become scratched or even, in some cases, deteriorate altogether. Additionally, special machines are needed to enlarge and read the images. Searching for information using these clunky microfilm readers is a cumbersome and time-consuming task. For these reasons, many consumers are now choosing to have their microfilm converted to a digital format.
Our experienced team will provide you with the highest quality images from all types of microfilm. We can convert your microfilm and microfiche into indexed and electronically retrievable images in the format of your preference: Tiff, PDF, etc.
We use the most sophisticated microfilm equipment and microfilm scanners to give you the best quality images. Simply send us your film or microfiche and we will send it back to you on CD, complete with the software to search, view, email or print your documents
