Boise, ID October 22, 2014
nextScan, Inc., a world leader in cutting edge technology for the micrographics conversion and document management industry, announced today the formal introduction of FicheStar, a Computer Output Microfilm (COM) scanning solution will be at the ARMA (American Records Management Association) Show in San Diego, CA, October 26-27, 2014.
Kurt Breish, nextScan CEO said, “many organizations who have previously delayed the conversion of critical COM Fiche film libraries, (a task that has traditionally been very labor intensive), will now have a solution that is ten times faster and much more economical. nextScan’s new FicheStar COM Fiche software accurately finds every image without the need for a grid setup or grid alignment. This detection software works even with skewed fiche, individually skewed rows, or even rows with twisted images. We are proud to introduce this new technology in software systems to compliment the suite of industry leading production microfilm and fiche scanners manufactured by nextScan.”
In addition to removing the reliance on a grid setup or film alignment during scanning, FicheStar has added many time saving features such as auto-add of index pages, saving the title bar for indexing, and handling partially filled fiche intuitively. The result is a ninety percent time savings vs. traditional auditing methods.
nextScan’s mission is to help customers quickly, efficiently and economically complete their digitization requirements. nextScan’s new FicheStar COM Fiche software technology is fully integrated with NextStar PLUS Workflow Software and Virtual Film, a new software product which inexpensively converts microfilm to a digital format. FicheStar includes an option for re-mastering of COM Fiche Ribbons to remove over-scan for Virtual Film. This software suite will represent exceptional value to customers seeking to move to a full ECM solution for their film archives with quality, cost-effective innovative microfilm and fiche scanning solutions.
Doreen Compton, nextScan V.P. of Marketing and Sales comments, “nextScan is very excited about this new software technology and sees this as a strategic relationship to help our customers and Service Bureaus. nextScan is focused on the continued investment in new hardware and software technology and looking to the future of digital preservation for microfilm.”
