PerfectView for Microfilm Scanning

See how easy PerfectView software is to use

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

Users easily read headlines in PerfectFocus without waiting for the image to refresh with images streaming live from our 18 megapixel image sensor. 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. Scans can also be further enhanced with Adjustment controls that include, contrast, brightness, sharpness, and more.

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.
