Microfilm scanning techniques, part 1

For one, it serves to protect the documents from loss due to paper damage. It also helps to store large quantities of information in an organized fashion.

The advantages of eliminating storage cost, instant retrieval of information, ability to transfer data anywhere, etc. have made it easy for such organizations to make this microfilm conversion decision.

To begin this process you first need to understand some concepts of microfilm scanning, imaging, and microfilm.
