Virtual Film is allowing government agencies like the Department of Treasury and a number of state agencies and county governments to safely and economically replace their microfilm libraries by converting to a permanent digital format that can be easily distributed and viewed on any PC. This new software enables agencies to preserve vital records and reduces the costs associated with Microfilm.
