Aug. 12, 2010 – The library has acquired a ScanPro 2000 microforms scanner from e-Image Data Corporation that works with many formats, including 16mm and 35mm roll film, microfiche, ultrafiche, and microcards (aka micro-opaques).

This unit includes a fast, high resolution optical zoom lens that magnifies from 7x to 105x.  Choose a scanning resolution of 150, 200, 250, 300, 400, or 600 dpi.  File format options include PDF, Multi page PDF, JPEG, TIFF, TIFF compressed, TIFF G4, and Multi page TIFF.

There is an Auto-Scan feature that automatically moves a designated number of roll film images into place, crops and straightens, and then saves to a specified folder in your selected format. This automatic scanning works only for roll film and works best when the filmed images are spaced evenly with dark, clearly defined borders.

Even with manual scanning, the processing is extremely fast, about 1 second per image.

The ScanPro 2000 machine is located in the Microforms area on the 1st floor of Newman Library. It is not connected to the Internet; you will need to save scanned images to a flash drive or print them.

If interested in a demo please contact Dave Beagle or watch a YouTube video demonstration.
