Penny Imaging Exchange, Inc. Outlines the Trend & Economics of Scanning Microfilm
Date:4/17/2009

Penny Imaging Exchange, Inc. is changing the way the industry outsources its services by providing a backroom operation for software and conversion companies as well as other imaging professionals and resellers.

Bohemia, NY (Vocus) April, 17, 2009 -- Would you spend $200,000 for equipment that requires specialized expertise and only generates a few cents in revenue? This is a phenomenon that is creating a new trend in the document imaging industry.

Scanning microfilmed records is a specialized process requiring high-end professional equipment and skilled technicians. Microfilm comes in many formats such as fiche, rolls and aperture cards and is inherently difficult to scan because when most of the film was originally created it was not intended to be scanned, as that technology was not commercially available.

The technology had to be developed around the exceptions and variations that exist with microfilm. For this reason there are companies that are specifically focused on these services; some on a wholesale basis servicing the industry by being a backroom operation with high-end equipment and experienced technicians using the latest technology to digitize and verify the images. This is the case with Penny Imaging Exchange Inc. (PIE) which as the name implies, digitizes records for just pennies.

Equipment for capturing images can range from line scanners to high end mega pixel cameras and sophisticated software; some of which can be seen at http://www.pennieimaging.com/video.html

PIE is changing the way the industry outsources their services by providing a backroom operation for software and conversion companies as well as other imaging professionals and resellers.

There are many millions of records on microfilm, from health records, to student transcripts and county documents. Yet microfilm when not properly processed or stored can develop maladies that will cause the images to slowly become illegible. Digitizing addresses this issue and also opens up opportunities for better records workflow and management, sharing of information, as well as preservation of archival documents.

Film can be scanned into various formats, such as TIFF, PDF, JPG etc. These images can also be combined into multi-page documents or single page images and even Optical Character Recognition (OCR) can be used to make the images text searchable.

In addition the images can be scanned as black & white or grayscale and in various Dots Per Inch (DPI) settings. A professional film conversion facility will scan samples as per your specifications or will make recommendations by testing sample film.

Preservation related microfilm conversions typically require very high quality images; often in grayscale and uncompressed formats with image enhancement on a per-image-basis. In addition multiple variations of the same image may be needed.

This is common for libraries, museums, preservationists, archivists and other professionals.
