Reliable capture of rolls of microfilm requires top of the line equipment, technology, special methodologies and expertise. Some of the challenges to expect include broken or damaged film, short leaders and trailers, extreme film densities, overlapping frames, imperfect blips, mixed polarities, mixed sizes and orientations, poor filming and/or film developing, unavailable or deficient lookup indexing tables (CAR files) and more. Proven methodologies include grayscale ribbons scanning, adequate pre-scan prepping, creative CAR file matching and editing, sophisticated frame detection and extraction, comprehensive image processing and production workflow software. We provide load files for bulk importing into designated document repositories. If the digitized film is not to be hosted in a document management system, we offer creative desktop solutions at no cost that can also save fortunes in massive indexing efforts.
