Microfiche and Microfilm scanning services

Accessing and working with microforms such as microfilm and microfiche records, as well as aperture cards, can be both time consuming and frustrating particularly when the machinery used to view these is unavailable and expensive to replace.

We're here to help

Our cost effective microfilm and microfiche scanning services help unlock the knowledge contained within microform archives, ensuring the value of the data is returned to your organisation.

Using specialist film scanners, we can capture the images making them available to view, distribute and store in more accessible forms. As a further enhancement the images can be run through an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) process, facilitating a keyword search facility for the end user.

At Restore Digital, we use our premium quality microfilm, microfiche and aperture scanners to convert the data into PDF, JPEG, or other digital formats as required.
