DRS Microfiche Scanner

DRS_Microfiche_S_4f0b9d04ea19d_1334573670.jpg The DRS is a high volume automatic scanner, processing up to 200 fiche or film jackets per hour unattended up to 300 dpi from 15x to 48 zoom.

The 2300 x 3500 pixel CCD camera scans the whole image instead of being line scanned, making the scanning process efficient.

With documents automatically trimmed and rotated, operators can then save images in PDF-A, JPEG and TIFFs as well as customised formats such as MOD:CA.
