Benefits of Microfilm Scanning

By scanning and converting film to digital images, you can eliminate the manual and time-consuming processes associated with retrieving and printing information stored on film.

As microfilm is scanned, key data elements can be indexed, increasing the overall value and usefulness of the information by greatly speeding up the search and retrieval process for your digital files. Multiple users may then be able to view the converted data simultaneously.

Depending on the volume of film in your archives and equipment used to view film, your physical storage space requirements can also be greatly reduced, freeing up valuable office or storage space for other purposes.

CDG also offers paper document and large format document scanning (including blueprints and engineering drawings), microfiche scanning, and aperture card scanning.
