Microfilms - reading and scanning

We produce microfilms, jackets, fiches aso. of your construction plans, drawings, documents or whatever you want to save.

Reading/scanning microfilms

Our microfilm scanner can read aperture cards, fiches/jackets and roll films (16 mm and 35 mm) and prepare the data for computer processing. We scan aperture cards in batches with a maximum resolution of 400 dpi (due to the original format). The procedure is particularly suitable for scanning large numbers of aperture cards. 

  • turn to the right position
  • cut to origin format
  • save as PDF
  • Vectorise (learn more about vectoristaion here)
  • We scan (roll film) jackets, microfiches and roll films directly. As this filming procedure usually creates large quantities of documents in DIN A4 format that subsequently need to be microfilmed, we offer two storage options: 

    • storage as individual files 
    • linking of individual chapters/sections to multipage files
    • OCR predictive text

    Why microfilm?

    It is practically impossible to imagine our working lives without IT data. IT is quick, flexible and cannot be beaten for its range of options for actively editing data. As a storage medium, however, IT has one crucial weak spot: even small errors in the hardware or software can quickly result in the irretrievable loss of important files. 

    Microfilm – a storage medium that lasts up to 300 years

    As a method of storing data independently of IT, microfilms offer a safe option for storing and documenting important files over a long period of time. Files saved on microfilm can be viewed at any time using special scanners, and microfilm’s durability means they are backed up safely for up to 300 years. Do you have an order or further questions about microfilm?
