“The Eclipse 2000 will lead the way for digital transformation of microfilm assets for the top institutions and service bureaus, helping to get more analog documents to be shared digitally,” said Rich Chaney, Vice President and General Manager of nextScan.
The advanced technology in the Eclipse 2000 will help both service bureaus and archive depositories around the world to complete large-scale microfilm conversion projects more quickly and cost-effectively, allowing them to make their historical treasures available to the masses online. The need for microfilm digitization was brought to the forefront by the 2020 pandemic, when limited access to physical copies meant that many historical documents were not available to the public at all. This has led many archivists, libraries, and universities, to assign higher priority to their backlog of digitization projects.
NextScan constantly pushes the boundaries of what is possible when converting microfilm to digital images. Combining continuous line-scan technology that captures one line of pixels at a time, with perfectly synchronized stroboscopic light, nextScan stretches what seems impossible into a reality. Line scanning technology ensures a 100% capture rate by scanning every pixel, edge to edge and end to end, without seams and without the need for lossy data compression.
NextScan is a worldwide leader in the conversion of microfilm, microfiche and aperture cards scanners. These include the standard Eclipse for high-speed microfilm capture, the FlexScan which combines both high-speed microfilm, microfiche and aperture cards, and the FlexView, a cost-conscious line scanning microfilm solution.
