PerfectView for Microfilm Scanning

PerfectView software is a powerful new tool for microfilm researchers that streamlines the browsing, scanning and saving of images stored on microfilm.

Users easily read headlines without waiting for the image to refresh with images streaming live from our 18 megapixel image sensor.

Featuring PerfectFocus technology, PerfectView software delivers precisely focused images every time. No need to manually focus an image again.

Quickly crop the article or scan the entire page. Each scan is then saved into the Image Ribbon (formerly known as the Image Bin). The Image Ribbon stores the scans during the session, which can be recalled at any time. Enhanced details of the image thumbnail can be viewed by resizing the Image Ribbon.

Once scanned, the image can be saved in many different formats and exported through  multiple channels, including email, Google Drive, Dropbox, and USB. Of course, the file can be sent to any network printer.

Working with the ViewScan 4 Microfilm Scanner is Easy…
