Microfilm scanning techniques, part 2

When considering a microfilm scanning conversion, there are some key facts that should be analyzed.

Let's first start with your film. There are variations of film types. For example, your microfilm may be a silver original or a diazo duplicate 16mm roll film or 35mm roll film. There are other film types, like duplex film and continuous form COM reels. They all have their purpose. You also need to understand how the film was produced so that your newly created digital image can be brought back to the correct magnification and aspect ratio. Microfilm scanning price is somewhat affected by the type of film that will be scanned.

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. Consider a good microfilm conversion firm to help you through this process.
