Roll Film Scanning

Services - Microfilm Scanning 1

Whatever the type of Roll Film Scanning you need, we can help!

At SunRise we’re able to provide the highest quality roll film scanning services available. Scanning your roll film will release the information stored upon on it. Utilising the very latest SunRise production microfilm scanners, we can provide a roll film scanning service to convert the film into digital files. By scanning your film you will improve the sharing, security and value of the data the reels contain. Scanning roll film immediately creates a back-up of the data which can then be stored easily and conveniently – providing your organisation with instant access to the documents and the tools to create an effective disaster recovery tool.

SunRise has been involved, either directly or in partnership, with a wide range of different customers and industries for well over 14 years. Our knowledge and expertise has seen us successfully deliver conversion projects with some of the largest roll film libraries. We complete all conversion projects securely, efficiently and cost effectively.

  • Easy to access and use digital files.
  • Complete disaster recovery backup.
  • Reduced filing cost.

Affordable Scanning Service

Whether scanning business documents on 16mm film or large format files such as newspapers, plans, maps or drawings on 35mm film, all can be easily converted producing the highest possible image quality either in black and white or greyscale in a variety of text searchable (OCR) file formats. Once converted the original reels can then be stored safely and far more cost effectively off site, providing an additional disaster recovery copy of the files. Some organizations even go further and destroy the films altogether, something we would never advocate.

A SunRise Imaging Advantage – True Optical Resolution Scanning

To ensure precision and quality SunRise only scan Roll film using our own market leading scanners. Our roll film scanners incorporate True Optical Resolution technology enabling us to replicate one pixel on the scanner camera for each pixel on your roll film image. This is achieved by optically adjusting the focal length of the camera lens to capture at true image resolution. Sunrise doesn’t use digital scaling on the image to achieve the correct resolution. As a result we produce the highest quality scanned images available.

Scaling a digital image can create image distortions that are not desirable, and can be very detrimental to image quality while also affecting the ability to perform OCR (Optical Character Recognition). Many roll film scanning organisations claim to use True Optical Resolution without the ability to adjust the optical path for different reduction ratios and DPI requirements. They use one fixed setting and accomplish different resolutions by scaling or interpolating, meaning they add or remove pixels from the original image. The addition or removal of pixels will significantly reduce the image quality and the OCR precision but also constitutes a manipulation of the original image that could be challenged in some legal applications.

Always use the Master Copy if you can!

With any form of film scanning it is always best where possible to scan from the original/master film rather than copies as this will help create the best possible images. If the master film isn’t available scanning from copies is possible however the image quality may be reduced. In such cases the high performance SunRise scanners we use are able to produce high quality images from even the worst films.

A Quality Roll Film Conversion Guaranteed

With our ISO 9001:2008 accreditation and over 10 years of expertise, we ensure that all of your data is kept confidential, safe and secure and that all of our conversion projects are completed to the very highest quality. This experience is why a large number of organisations entrust Sunrise to scan their valuable microfilm and microfiche.
