MCS Vancouver Microfilm and Microfiche Scanning Services

In our last blog, we spoke about document scanning here at Micro Com Systems. We talked about how we process the box and the files, document preparation, quality control; and indexing.

Microfilm & Microfiche Scanning

Today, I want to dive a little deeper into one of the services we offer: microfilm and microfiche scanning.

(Well, it would be awkward and weird if the blog was about something different than the title, right?)

And as in the last blog, I also bring you a video.

I won’t go into all the details of the video because, well, it would be redundant. But there’s something that it’s not featured in the video that I think it’s worth mentioning.


The attention to detail and the will to deliver the best quality material to the clients amaze me the most at Micro Com Systems. And I can see that daily with the Sunrise microfilm and microfiche scanners.

Every day—and I mean it—the machines are assessed to ensure everything is running as smoothly as possible. Not only that, between jobs, every glass part is cleaned in order to guarantee a crystal clear quality image.

The result is the best possible digitalization of every single microfilm and microfiche frame.

In my first few days, I thought that such repetitive maintenance was overkill. But it isn’t. You can see the difference as clear as day and night. You can’t imagine how a speck of almost invisible dirt can ruin such a delicate task.

To me, that’s what sets us apart from other companies. We do whatever we need to do to ensure quality.
