Microfiche scanning techniques, part 2

In the initial stage of a microfiche conversion project, some important details should be outlined.

Let's first start with your fiche cards. There are variations of microfiche types. For example, your microfiche may be a silver original or a diazo duplicate, 16 mm or 35 mm frames may be included. There are other fiche types, like COM fiche, jacketed fiche, step-and-repeat fiche, and rewritable fiche. They all have their purpose. You also need to understand how the fiche was produced so that your newly created digital image can be brought back to the correct magnification and aspect ratio. The price to convert your microfiche may be affected by the type of microfiche cards you going to digitize.

Secondly, let's touch a bit on digital imaging. This is the term used for the document file in its digital format. Images are stored in computer drives and can be manipulated in many different ways with the proper imaging software. Images may be measured in height, width, and also pixels. The size of the images will affect its quality, and can also affect the transfer speed between you and your customer, and how long you need to wait to view the image. Let an experience team from a reputable microfilm scanning company help you through this process. Find the best possible price in the market.
