Austin, Texas Microfilm and Microfiche Scanning Solution

Digital ReeL Overview 

Digital ReeL is a complete Austin, Texas microfilm, microfiche, and aperture card scanning solution ideal for any organization with archival material. The Digital ReeL microfilm and microfiche scanning solution creates a digital replica of your original microfilm, microfiche and aperture cards; we scan the entire roll or sheet to capture everything (e.g. we create a digital roll/fiche).

Digital ReeL includes a web-based viewer that replicates microform retrieval from a physical reader printer. Your users access records using the same search and retrieval methodology they currently utilize, but now leverage an internet-connected device instead of a physical reader.

Digital ReeL combines full-text searching capabilities with the utilization of your existing indexing methodology (e.g. book/page, case number, roll/frame) to enable users to quickly find information. Even multiple indexing methodologies can be accommodated.

Cloud Hosting and Installed Options 

  • Hosted Application: BMI offers a hosted application for your digital records, stored on servers at our two data centers. Your users will log into the Digital ReeL portal through an Internet browser to search and access records. Easy to access and easy to use!
  • On-site Installation: If you’d rather store your records at your location, we can deliver your scanned records along with the Digital ReeL application to your IT department. Your records are kept and managed internally. Users will access your digital microfilm records from a computer workstation(s).

Digital ReeL is the Practical Solution for Your Legacy Records 

  • Affordable: Digital ReeL is normally priced per microfiche sheet with indexing at the microfiche title level. With this process, you can easily replicate your existing search methods and save money by skipping the expensive document-level indexing step.
  • Microfiche Scanning Accuracy: We digitally scan the entire microfiche sheet, preserving your microfiche exactly as they appear physically. No images missed, no data lost.
