You may know Digital Check simply as “the check scanner company,” but the truth is, scanners are just one part of a rich history that goes back more than 60 years. We’ve been working with images and precision optics since long before scanners or even mass-market computers were invented.
Over the years, we’ve developed some of the earliest copy machines, editing projectors for the Hollywood studios, and phototypesetters that replaced the old manual typesetting process in newspapers. We’ve made cameras for the NASA Mariner and Viking space programs that translated beamed-back radio signals into visible images. Our precision projectors were used in flight simulators for the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom fighter jet and NASA’s Skylab space station. And we remade some of the world’s first fax machines – from FedEx’s discontinued Zapmail project – into some of the first high-speed document scanners for computers. Today, we also work with image-enhancement software and digital recognition algorithms.
Along the way, we’ve developed not only a knack for mechanical invention, but a deep understanding of what it takes to bring out the best in an image.
