BMI Imaging Systems to scan 13,000 microfilm rolls; users will access 1909- 1988 County records through the Digital ReeL interface

Sunnyvale, California — September 24, 2009 — BMI Imaging Systems, a leading provider of document conversion, microfilm scanning and document management solutions, announced that the Nevada Clark County Recorder’s Office has selected BMI Imaging’s Digital ReeL as its microfilm conversion platform.

Digital ReeL is a microfilm scanning solution that includes a software application specifically designed for microfilm, microfiche and aperture card digital images. The Digital ReeL interface mimics the look of a reader printer. BMI’s Digital ReeL microfilm scanning service creates an exact digital replica of each microfilm roll, thereby maintaining the archival integrity of the original microfilming process. Digital ReeL provides a unique grayscale adjustability that enables users to manually over ride basic scanner brightness and contrast settings to optimize each image prior to printing. Following completion of the project which is expected to take 5-6 months, public users will access the digitized records utilizing existing PC workstations located within the Clark County Recorder’s office.

The scope of the microfilm scanning project also includes the microfilm conversion of several thousand rolls imported to Clark County’s existing document management solution. BMI will also provide an estimated 9,000 silver halide archival microfilm rolls as part of the scanning project.
