Northbrook, IL – January 11, 2017 – ST Imaging, a worldwide leader in the design and manufacturing of digital microfilm viewer/scanners is delighted to announce their third consecutive Platinum award from LibraryWorks’ third annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs). The ST ViewScan is the only microfilm scanner to have won the Platinum MLA in all three years.
“The MLAs acknowledge the outstanding products and companies that work closely with the library market. It is an honor that library professionals have graded the ST ViewScan the highest in our field for a third consecutive year with the Platinum distinction from the MLAs. ST Imaging will continue to bring solutions and inventive features for viewing, scanning and sharing microfilm,” said Bruce Rennecker, Vice President of ST Imaging.
Designed around the patron experience, the ST View Scan III is regarded as the easiest to learn and use microfilm scanner on the market. While older reader/printers and other microfilm scanners can be difficult to operate, the ST ViewScan III makes loading film quick and easy and the task of microfilm research fun. The ST ViewScan III also allows users to share their discoveries like never before. Patrons can quickly save to a USB drive, Google Drive, Dropbox, email, FamilySearch, OCLC, and of course, can print.
Most ST Imaging’s customers are not experts in the field of image capture. To make it easy to discern the true capability of the camera, ST Imaging employs the same definition used by your digital camera or mobile phone, the number of megapixels on the image sensor within the camera. Competitive scanners, that have not won an MLA award, may use a different definition of “camera” that does not allow an accurate comparison of a scanner’s capabilities. Be sure you have accurate information on the ”camera” in your microfilm scanner.
The MLAs were created to recognize top products in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Products were submitted by companies, collected by LibraryWorks which distributes them to their database of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers who have had experience with these products in their facilities were permitted to judge the products, resulting in a truly unbiased score.
