Microfiche Scanning

If you want to digitize microfiche, you must be aware that scanning microfiche technology includes operating microfiche scanners such as NextStar, Sunrise, Mekel, Wicks and Wilson, Cannon, or other name brands. Also, there many types of media. Types of microfiche include: COM fiche (Computer Output Media), jacketed microfiche (16mm, 35mm, or combo fiche), step-and-repeat fiche, ultrafiche, and rewritable fiche (like A/B Dick or Microx).

You can't just scan microfiche records into your computer without these scanners, and without having the expertise and training to run them. Digitizing microfiche is a highly specialized field. When you factor the time and cost of training and labor (not to mention mistakes and rescans) it is best to leave microfiche scanning to experts. After all, it is a lot less expensive to just send your microfiche to Scanning Depot than to buy one $65,000 microfiche scanner and hire or train new employees. The cost of a microfiche digital conversion is much less than you would expect.
