The ScanPro® Difference

Why are our ScanPro line of microfilm scanners the product of choice for libraries, research facilities, universities and organizations worldwide? Well, there are many things we do that set us apart from our competition and we like to call it the ScanPro difference.

Outstanding Capabilities Why are the ScanPro Microfilm Scanners the best?
The ScanPro Microfilm Scanners are the only microfilm scanners that you will ever need.

ScanPro microfilm scanners cover all your microfilm needs.

A commitment to continuing development.
Mechanically durable for a lifetime of use - ScanPro microfilm scanners are made for the rigors of public use. Heavy gauge steel is utilized throughout and steel bearings are used for smooth operation and long life. Customers report that they have made millions of scans and that their ScanPro microfilm scanners are working just like new. We are confident in the performance and integrity of our design and back our scanners with a comprehensive 3-year factory warranty to confirm that we are always here to support our customers.

Ongoing development for a lifetime of performance - The ScanPro equipment is modular, durable and is designed to meet the broadest range of micrographic applications, including fiche, jackets, 16mm and 35mm roll film, cartridge film, ultra-fiche, micro opaques, and aperture cards.

Here are some of the e-ImageData innovation track record accomplishments.
  • Development of the industry 26 megapixel pixel shifting camera 1 providing the clearest image for microfilm use.
  • "SPOT-Edit"- Select areas on the screen image then adjust brightness & contrast for improved readability without affecting non-selected areas, patrons call this the "must have" feature.
  • 7x-105x wide range optical zoom to cover all film magnifications and to read the smallest text and examine fine details
  • Continual image focus (the microfilm image is always in focus without operator intervention).
  • "Auto-Adjust" - Automatically adjusts the image on the view screen for best brightness & contrast, straightens the image, and places a crop box around the image ready for scanning or printing, patrons call this the "magic button".
  • The ScanPro i9300 that reads all common and custom one, two and three level “image marks” for indexed searching with exceptional accuracy and speed.
  • Integrated OCR using the top rated ABBYY fine reader OCR engine for creating word-searchable documents and providing powerful, easy-to-use research tools.
  • The award- winning ScanPro All-In-One microfilm scanners are an on-demand desktop reader/scanner/printer and a desktop conversion scanner for all film types (16mm open spool & cartridge), 35mm, fiche, jackets, ultra-fiche, micro opaques, aperture cards), and at affordable pricing. Only the ScanPro All-In-One microfilm scanners provide these capabilities.
Fully upgradeable to the next model All ScanPro microfilm scanner models built after 2008 (excludes the ScanPro 1000) can be upgraded to the next model. This means that you don't have to buy another microfilm scanner to get the latest technology, just upgrade the ScanPro that you already own. No other manufacturer provides this capability.
Compatible with the AUTO-Carrier™
Any current ScanPro model can ship from the factory with an AUTO-Carrier for scanning microfiche and microfilm (requires a roll carrier). And, if you add AUTO-Scan® Pro you can scan at over 100 images per minute. The ScanPro is the only desktop microfilm scanner on the market that can provide both on-demand scanning and conversion scanning of roll film and fiche. Also, any ScanPro microfilm scanner models built after 2008 can be upgraded to add an AUTO-Carrier for scanning fiche and roll film (requires a roll film carrier when scanning microfilm).
26 megapixel camera1, highest in the microfilm industry

1The ScanPro i9300 high-performance, 26 Megapixel, pixel-shifting camera produces the clearest image in the microfilm industry. Pixel-shifting is a state-of-the-art technology being used by some of the best known and respected manufactures in the camera industry. Companies like Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, Leica, Zeiss, Pentax, Lumix, and many others are successfully using this technology. Although e-ImageData is not the first manufacturer to use pixel-shifting, we are the first and the only manufacturer in the micrographics industry to use this advanced technology to capture higher megapixel images. E-ImageData starts with the largest image sensor in the industry with the largest pixel size in the industry and using pixel shifting technology, captures and integrate 4 unique optical images into a single 26 megapixel camera image, providing the clearest microfilm images in the industry

Aside from our exclusive features, the ScanPro difference can be broken down into three main differentiators: Reliability, Performance and Ease-of-Use.

ScanPro Reliability

e-ImageData is known throughout the industry for having superior product reliability. This reliability begins with the construction of our ScanPro products. Under the decorative cabinet covers, heavy gauge steel is used throughout the microfilm scanner and all moving parts use steel ball bearings for smooth operation time and time again. The combination carriers for all film types, considered the best in the industry, are easy to use and fast to operate. From the motor we selected to power the ScanPro to the light we use to show your microfilm image on the view screen, the design of the scanner is one that will last and continue working for you for years to come. It is not unusual to find a ScanPro that has made millions of scans and is working just like new.

ScanPro Performance

When our ScanPro microfilm scanners complete an operation, we expect that operation to happen the same way time and time again. With the best-in-the-industry PRECISION-Guide rollers, and the precise micro-positioning capability of the roll film carriers, your microfilm image can be positioned quickly and accurately every time. These precision capabilities are what also makes it possible to provide exceptional features like continual image focus, wide range optical zoom, automatic film scanning and library quiet operation, and all with exceptionally low power usage.
