microfiche data conversion
Digitising Thousands of Microfiche Documents 
Our client approached us with 9,000 photographic negatives, which they were looking to scan and convert into electronic files.  The negatives were proprietary microfiche images measuring 160mm x 130mm.
The client needed to access these images on a regular basis and was finding that it was too cumbersome and time consuming, using their existing system.  They specifically wanted the documents securely backed up, so multiple users could access records from their desktop without having to search through physical files. This would allow users to search by name, date, or any relevant technical information.   
 Using our document scanning tools, we were able to scan every file and to TIF at a standard resolution of 300dpi.  Thereafter, we indexed all the images by their unique existing identity.  These were then imported into our bespoke document management system, which takes all the documents, indexes them intelligently and stores them in a database.  Users can then search, retrieve and re-index documents efficiently.  If required the user can export to PDF from our system.  The footprint is less than 20Mb, which means that it runs on any operating system.

"Thank you so much for all your help - Data Recovery Specialists are a real life saver!  I do not know what I would have done without the data you recovered.  We would have probably had to re-record all the location shots, which would have been time consuming and very expensive"  BBC Wales
