Aperture Card Scanning for Digital Scanning. Turning Aperture Cards into Easily Accessed Digital Images.
Oxford Duplication Centre provide aperture card scanning in the UK. We use the latest technology and equipment to convert your aperture cards into digital format.
An aperture card is a type of punched card with a cut-out window into which a chip of microfilm is mounted. Such a card is used for archiving or for making multiple inexpensive copies of a document for ease of distribution.
The card is typically punched with machine-readable metadata associated with the microfilm image, and printed across the top of the card for visual identification. The microfilm chip is most commonly 35mm in height, and contains an optically reduced image, usually of some type of reference document, such as an engineering drawing, that is the focus of the archiving process.
Aperture cards have several advantages and disadvantages when compared to digital systems. Machinery exists to automatically store, retrieve, sort, duplicate, create, and digitize cards with a high level of automation. While many aperture cards still play an important role in archiving, their role is gradually being replaced by digital systems.
We are highly recommended as Oxfordshire's leading archive and imaging solutions, and are proud to be Oxfordshire County Councils preferred supplier of digital media.
