Massachusetts Microfiche Conversion Solution

Digital ReeL Overview 

Digital ReeL is a unique microfiche conversion solution. BMI Imaging Systems will convert your microfiche and microfilm to digital representations of your microfiche and microfilm at one of our secure facilities (optional, on-site option available). The Digital ReeL microfiche conversion service creates an exact, digital replica of your physical microfiche and microfilm. The entire microfiche (not just the individual images on the microfiche) is digitally converted. Digital ReeL includes a software application that emulates microfiche retrieval from a reader printer. Users retrieve virtual microfiche from a PC workstation, avoiding the hassles that come with physical microfiche, microfilm and legacy reader printers. Digital ReeL is the ideal microfiche conversion solution for public Massachusetts agencies and private companies with years or archived microfiche records (read our case studies).

Digital ReeL’s microfiche conversion service is completed at one of BMI Imaging’s two HIPAA-compliant, Northern Californian secure facilities (optional on-site conversion is available). To ensure the safety of your information while in our hands, each one of our production facilities includes alarm and sprinkler systems, fire-suppression equipment, remote monitoring and tightly controlled facility access.

Cloud Hosting and Installed Options 

  • On Premise: Your IT department manages the servers/storage that store your digitally converted microfiche and microfilm records. In addition, you’ll have one or more PC workstations that access the Digital ReeL application and your virtual, digital microfiche records.
  • Hosted Option: BMI completes not only the microfiche conversion for Massachusetts companies, but also stores your digital microfiche at our secure data center. Users log into the Internet and access records from the Digital ReeL web interface. The Digital ReeL hosted option is ideal for organizations that do not want to incur up-front capital expenditures or want to avoid the hassle of purchasing servers, storage and the IT resources to manage the ongoing system.

What Makes Digital ReeL Unique?

  • Affordable Price: Digital ReeL is priced 50% less than classic microfiche conversion methods, making it an ideal solution for infrequently accessed microfiche archives.
  • Microfiche Conversion Accuracy: Digital ReeL converts microfiche, microfilm and aperture cards with near 100% accuracy because the entire microfiche or microfilm roll is converted. No images or details are lost thus preserving your microfiche, microfilm and aperture cards exactly as they appeared in their physical state.
  • Image Quality: Adjustable grayscale is included so that users can adjust the contrast and brightness of every image. Users can optimize even the toughest-to-read images.
