Micrographics Digitisation


When is the right time to start your Microfilm preservation project?

Technology and hardware obsolescence are significant drivers of the current wave of Microfilm transformation. Large organisations with substantial volumes of archive stored on microfilm are hard at work assessing their stored media because if stored under the wrong conditions, the ink on Microfilm can start fading with age making it difficult to retrieve valuable data.  

| Like all films, micrographic films deteriorate over time if not stored in controlled environments.
