Microforms are scaled-down reproductions of documents, typically either films or paper, made for the purposes of transmission, storage, reading, and printing. Microform images are commonly reduced to about one twenty-fifth of the original document size.
We can convert and digitise your microfilm and microfiche archives either in bulk or as a scan on demand service with all images scanned using the latest technology giving you the best high resolution image possible.
All microfilm can be scanned to TIFF, JPEG or PDF format at up to 600dpi resolution for incorporating into most viewing software.

SPECIALIST CARD FILM SCANNING
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.
