nextstar process

The NextStarPLUSTM Workflow Software Platform provides optimum speed and significantly reduces microfilm conversion costs by minimizing operator setup and the important Quality Assurance (QA), all while eliminating the need for rescans. Image data is initially captured in grayscale as a “Ribbon,” allowing image enhancements to be performed at the audit workstation. This process produces optimum speed, scan time, output quality, and accuracy of the overall process. NextStar Software is designed, built and supported by nextScan.
