Microfilm and Microfiche were at one time the best options for backing up critical data, accessing information and reducing the need for paper file storage. However, in the age of ever advancing digital technology, these formats have proven to be obsolete. Image retrieval from microfilm and microfiche is very time consuming and requires bulky, out-dated readers to view. Plus, the film itself is vulnerable to decay and loss.
Converting this legacy data to searchable digital files has tremendous benefits and is often a requirement for companies, municipalities, schools and government agencies.
RMC has converted millions of images from microfilm and microfiche to digital format. Film conversions take place at our secure, state-of-the-art facility in Hampden, Maine.
No matter how much Microfilm or Microfiche media you have, we can capture the highest quality digital images along with accurate index information, at an affordable price. Our unique experience, specialized equipment, and proven imaging process will accommodate your conversion from microfilm and microfiche on time and within budget.
1. We’ll collect your microfiche and microfilm at your location and transport it to our secure facility for scanning. Your originals are meticulously handled throughout the entire process and safely returned back to you after scanning. (Or we can provide Certified Destruction after processing.)
