San Diego, California Microfilm & Microfiche Scanning Solution – Digital ReeL Overview

Our microfilm conversion solution scans each of your physical microfilm rolls to digital records at our facility (on-site options are possible). The Digital ReeL microfilm conversion service creates a virtual replica of your physical microfilm; we digitally scan the entire microfilm roll.

Digital ReeL includes a web-based viewer that emulates microfilm retrieval from a physical reader printer. Your users access information using the indexing methodology currently in place for your physical archive, but now leveraging a computer instead of a physical reader.

Digital ReeL utilizes your existing indexing methodology to enable users to quickly find information. Common indexing methods include case number, roll and frame, book and page and name and date. Full-text search is included so that researchers can locate words, phrases and numbers across your entire digital microfilm archive.

Researchers such as employees, citizens and customers access your digital microfilm records from a computer workstation(s) through the Digital ReeL application.
