Sunnyvale, California July 23, 2012 — BMI Imaging Systems, a leading provider of microfilm scanning solutions, microfiche conversion and document management services, released its second in a series of three videos highlighting important considerations for organizations evaluating digital microfilm conversion services in the market.
The second microfilm scanning educational video (two in a series of three) discusses how organizations can improve the quality of their entire record archive during the microfilm scanning service.
Many organizations with legacy records on microfilm continue to seek a microfilm scanning service due to unstable microfilm and the efficiencies and disaster recovery protection that come with digitizing records. When seeking a microfilm scanning solution, companies and government agencies should examine image enhancement as part of the overall solution. Microfilm scanning projects are one-time events and adding image enhancement features to the archive such as adjustable grayscale is a great way to bring images that might be unreadable on microfilm back to life in their digital state.
The microfilm scanning solution video explains the differences between Digital ReeL and standard microfilm scanning services with regards to image quality. The video demonstrates how the Digital ReeL microfilm scanning solution includes a feature called adjustable grayscale. Many microfilm scanning services may offer static grayscale as part of their solution, but only adjustable grayscale allows users to fine tune the quality of a particular image to optimize the quality of the image. In many cases, images not currently readable on microfilm can be brought back to life with adjustable grayscale.
