Watch the third and final video in our series of three microfilm conversion solution videos; video highlights indexing and searching as an important consideration when evaluating microfilm conversion options

Sunnyvale, California – November 20, 2012 – BMI Imaging Systems, a leading provider of microfilm conversion solutions, microfiche scanning and document imaging services, announced today that it is releasing its third in a series of three videos outlining important considerations for government agencies and companies evaluating microfilm conversion options in the market.

The third video (three in a series of three) discusses how Digital ReeL utilizes your existing indexing method so that users can find information. The video also shows how users can leverage full-text search to truly unlock the searching potential within your archive.

As organizations continue their microfilm conversion projects, consideration should be given how researchers will locate records once they are digitized. Many users are familiar with current indexing and searching within existing physical archives. This microfilm conversion solution video explains how Digital ReeL leverages your existing indexing methodology (e.g. roll/frame, case number, book/page) so that researchers can access records in a familiar way.

The video goes on to show how Digital ReeL incorporates full-text searching to complement existing micrographic indexing methods. Users can search for records across the entire archive using words, phrases and numbers.
