Optional Features

At e-ImageData we are constantly looking for new and emerging technology to improve our ScanPro products and provide intuitive, easy-to-use interfaces that have exceptional features and capabilities never before seen when working with microfilm. Patrons have commented that the features and capabilities of the ScanPro equipment are both easy-to-use and even make “working with microfilm fun”. We will continue these efforts as we continue to blur the line between microfilm and electronic information delivery.

Add more functionality and take your research to the next level with our optional add-on features that will revolutionize the way you work with microfilm. Available on the ScanPro 2200 Plus, ScanPro i9300 and ScanPro 3000, these exclusive features perform with exceptional speed and accuracy.

*Since the ScanPro 2200 and the ScanPro 2200 Plus share the same hardware, you can upgrade your ScanPro 2200 to a fully functional top-of-the-line ScanPro 2200 Plus (including access to all of the ScanPro 2200 Plus options) at any time.
