Microfilm

The use of microfilm dates back to the 19th Century. These days, microfilm is still the safest & most economical method of storing records and remains the bedrock of the data imaging industry due to its longevity (there are examples of microfilm which remain perfectly usable despite being over 100 years old) coupled with its ‘technology proof’ format which is oblivious to continual changes and improvements to the operating systems and software used on modern business machines.

Many companies utilize the combined benefits of microfilm and scanned images. Western Micrographics supports scanners that can transform microfilm into digital forms, just like scanning paper documents. We can provide microfilm scanning to create a digital library with all of the advantages of storing documents electronically. No service bureau can match our experience and state-of-the-art techniques. Projects include multi-million dollar conversions, client-site facilities management and “on demand” information retrieval.

We convert images and data from all types of media from rare books to existing computer files. Methods range from single page processing with manual data entry to high-speed OCR/ICR, forms processing and media conversions. A growing number of clients use our conversion expertise and fax to email to integrate and deliver content into their own web sites. Our successful project management and data conversion experience is backed up by outstanding references in government and almost every paper-intensive industry.
