Case Study | Phoenix Police Department, AZ

“We researched traditional film-to-digital imaging solutions, but found the products too expensive for our record requirements. Digital ReeL provides an exact digital replica of our microfilm and is accessible on our existing workstations. The price amazed us – 50% less than any other solution we looked at.”

“Following a review of several proposals, we determined that Digital ReeL was the best solution due to its practical, price competitive approach to digitally converting our microfilm archives. Digital ReeL’s unique adjustable grayscale image enhancement feature is critical to optimizing the quality of our older, poor quality images.”
