Secure on-line web repository, print back to paper or full film duplication services are available. Microfilms are still produced by the company as the archival aspect, a 500 year life expectancy, of this medium is extremely attractive to many of our customers especially when used as a backup for digital images.
Our in house courier service can reliably provide secure collections and deliveries.
Is produced on a spectacularly high-volume scanner and represents a significant investment for the company.

Microfilm and microfiche Scanning
Using the unquestionably superb quality Sunrise film and fiche scanner range, renown throughout for excellent analogue to digital reproduction, we can scan any type of microfilm and any type of microfiche with precision, accuracy and speed. In this role we have scanned for Local Authorities (planning applications) national newspapers to go on-line and banks and public utilities to name a few who have taken advantage of our enviable range of services.
We are proud to still offer this form of archiving to the library and commercial clients who have a high dependency on being able to read analogue images now and in the long term future. This ‘obsolescent’ proof format is ideal for customers who are not in great need of the functionality of the digital image as on a computer but do have the responsibility of ensuring archive integrity now and in the future. Libraries, Insurance Companies, Engineering Drawing offices, Mortgage suppliers and many others still fall into this category.
