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.

OCR Tools— Discover the Power of Word Searchable Microfilm

With the ScanPro’s newest Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology you can search for words that you select, link words, names, and locations directly to information sources, copy selected areas as text to the clipboard, or convert your entire microfilm image to word searchable PDF's, all with a single click of the live image on your view screen.

We have licensed the ABBYY Fine Reader engine and integrated it into the ScanPro software to insure the highest possible performance. In addition, we work directly with the image on the screen to further reduce the number of steps to complete any feature and to maximize OCR speed. Only the ScanPro Productivity Suite have these features.
