Northbrook, IL – January 9, 2019 – ST Imaging is pleased to receive a record-setting fifth consecutive Platinum award for the ViewScan microfilm scanner from LibraryWorks’ fifth annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs). A worldwide leader in the design and manufacturing of digital microfilm viewer/scanners, ST Imaging is the only microfilm scanner manufacturer to have won the Platinum MLA in all five years.
“It is with great pride that ST Imaging receives our fifth consecutive Platinum Modern Library Award! Year after year the ViewScan shows why it is considered the best in the industry. User experience! Our 18 megapixel image sensor is always delivering crisp and clear images using our PerfectFocus technology. We also launched new PerfectView software which is making the patron experience more enjoyable while using microfilm” said Matt Anderson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ST Imaging.
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.
ST Imaging designed the ViewScan around the patron experience to be an easy to learn and use microfilm scanner, which we have done! The new ViewScan 4 has taken simplicity even further by implementing the PerfectFocus feature that delivers images in immaculate, continuous focus. While older reader/printers and other microfilm scanners can be difficult to use, the ViewScan makes loading and scanning film quick, fun, and easy. The ViewScan 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.
We understand that most of our customers are not experts in the field of image capture. That is why we describe our camera size by the capacity of our image sensor, as is the case for most cellphones and digital cameras. The ViewScan uses a native 18 megapixel color image sensor to create the images. With such a large image sensor there is no need for additional hardware giving you a clear image instantly, all the time. Competitive scanners may use a different definition of camera. Be sure you have accurate information of the image sensor on the camera in your microfilm scanner and if you have any doubt, request a side-by-side demonstration.
