ST Imaging ViewScan 4

 

ST Imaging's ViewScan 4 is the most advanced end-user microfilm scanner available today. Film is displayed in real time on a PC monitor in place of a traditional viewing screen. The printer has also been eliminated allowing users to print to network (or local) printers.  

 

These innovations reduce the devices' size by 75% over conventional reader printers, allows you to select the optimum display size for your users, and eliminates another printing device and the associated supplies and maintenance.

 

As a digital device users have a wide range of options for their scanned images; save files as PDF/JPG/TIF, Email images, save to flash or network drives, upload to DropBox/Google Drive/OCLC/ILLiad, digitally enhance images, and convert to searchable text.
