Microfilm Scanning & Microfiche Conversion for San Antonio, Texas

The Affordable Microfiche Scanning Service

  • We convert the entire microfiche (or microfilm roll). Our pricing is per microfiche and per microfilm roll. This differs from other microfiche scanning services that price per image (there can be hundreds of images on a fiche or roll). Digital ReeL is the practical and affordable microfiche scanning service you are looking for; it is particularly well suited for legacy archives that are not accessed all that often.

Microfiche Scanning Accuracy

  • We create a digital replica of each physical microfiche in its entirety. No images or details on the microfiche are lost, preserving your records exactly as they appeared in their physical state.

Web Application Included for Easy Retrieval and Viewing

  • The Digital ReeL San Antonio microfilm conversion solution includes an elegant, easy-to-use viewer that enables users to view a complete digital microfiche and then zoom in to individual records. Full text search is included so that users can leverage your existing indexing scheme and also locate records using any combination of words, phrases and numbers.

Install at your San Antonio Location or Leverage our Cloud

  • On Premise: Digital ReeL is offered as an on premise, self-deployed solution. After we complete the microfilm conversion or microfiche scanning service, we send your digital images along with the Digital ReeL application to an IT person. Your digital images and the Digital ReeL application are installed and managed at your site. Users leverage one or more computer workstations (even tablets) to access digital microfiche/microfilm records from the Digital ReeL application.
  • Cloud Option: With this option, BMI completes the microfilm/microfiche service and then hosts your digital records at our secure data center (via our partnership with RagingWire). Researchers access records using any computer or tablet to log into the Digital ReeL application through a browser (e.g. Chrome, Internet Explorer).

Digital ReeL is the Practical Solution for Your Legacy Records
