The RAVS optional feature, offered exclusively on the ST Imaging ST ViewScan II and III models, has the ability to advance or rewind your microfilm a select number of frames (with or without blips).
A researcher or records manager might know exactly where on the film the information they need is located. Before RAVS they would need to run and standby the film. Once they were close to their target they would then read each page until the information is found. Not anymore!
A RAVS user simply loads the film to the first page, enters the desired frame they want to go to and the scanner takes care of the rest! This gives the user the power to arrive at the information faster than any other microfilm scanner.
The RAVS feature is included with the purchase of Cruise Control software or can be purchased separately.
