Save Valuable Time And Effort By Using Our Microfilm Scanning Services

At Restore, we understand how frustrating it can be trying to access certain documents, especially microform archives, when you just don’t have the time to be working out how to release the information. That is why our cost-effective microfilm scanning services are here to help you unlock what is contained in these particular archives and to make sure this valuable data is returned to you.

What is Microfilm Scanning?

Microfilming is the name for when documents are transferred onto a film reel as an image, the printed materials are usually photographed at a smaller size to make them easier to store.


However, microfilm scanning is now the more advanced and efficient process which now converts microfilm into a digital format. Microfilm scanning involves the reduction of images to a size where they are too small to be read without particular microfilm readers, which usually saves up to 99% of space. Due to books, newspapers and other paper based documents deteriorating through old age, microfilm scanning is becoming more and more popular.


Restore’s Microfilm Scanning Services

Using specialist film scanners, at Restore we can capture the images and documents from the film you need and make them available to view for you. We also help distribute the documents and store them in a form that is more accessible to you. The information we extract for you can then be managed very easily by users from their desktop, which saves all of the hassle of having to take the film to a specialist reader or printer. As an extra, Restore can also run the images through an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and an Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) process which then creates an easy keyword search facility for the user.


As well as microfilm scanning, we also offer microfiche scanning which allows us to work with a larger range of films and documents and therefore help make things easier for you as much as possible!
