Microfilm Scanning Complexity

Microfilm scanners for microfilm conversion projects are more complicated than some people think. Although there is simple scanning equipment that can solve small tasks, for real scanning production you need a microfilm scanner that can take care of any and all issues that you will encounter. For scanning 16mm microfilm or 35mm microfilm you can use the same system if you get the right brand. Other systems only allow you to do one size. For scanning microfiche, you will need to make major conversion or get a specialized system.

Good microfilm scanning equipment will offer an experienced operator many tools to work with. All of these tools have a good reason to be there but if you are new to the process, the amount of information that you need to know can be overwhelming. It takes a person many months of training and operating this expensive scanning equipment to be able to make the best use of an advanced microfilm scanner. You may get by with just knowing some things, but like with everything else, you are not going to get the best results or good results until you really know what you are doing.
