Sunrise Imaging Inc announces new Scanflo version with integrated Virtual Scan mode.
Santa Ana, CA, Jan 4, 2016- SunRise Imaging, Inc., the leader in high-performance microfilm-scanning products used to convert rollfilm, microfiche and aperture cards to digital format, announced today that the latest version of Scanflo Premier has integrated virtual scan (VS) mode. The term "Virtual Scan" comes from the technique of scanning microfilm to strip files with post scan processing of the strips files into individuals pages using software that mimics "Live Scan" of microfilm.
According to Dennis Childs of Sunrise Imaging Inc, "Sunrise has supported virtual scan mode since RowScan was introduced in 1997 on the Sunrise P3 modular scanner. Sunrise has been had strip scanning mode for nearly 20 years. In 2006 we introduced ReelScan for Rollfilm, and now we have integrated VS into Scanflo Premier with greatly simplified processing, and higher performance. We eliminated the need for Queue processing, and dedicated servers. This version of VS mode has take quite a while to perfect, but we wanted to insure Premier's VS mode achieved high performance while dealing with very difficult films."
"Scanflo Premier makes the strip files, and the new VS mode processes the strips post scan on a workstation or a scanner.
VS mode includes the following:
Mr Childs said "Some microfilms types are difficult to work with and the new features introduced in VS mode provide the tools needed. Frankly it would not be feasible to handle these films without VS."
"Eliminate having to re-scan because all of the image data is preserved. Even the portion of the film outside the page frames."
"Keep the strip files as a "Digital Master" for future processing to extract pages. These raw scan files can be used for scan on demand mode."
"VS can execute on a PC workstation eliminating time needed on the scanner. For Duplex scanning the strip scan rate can be over 800 pages per minute. All pages on an entire reel can be automatically found a few minutes. The pages are published from the disk files at over 1000 pages per minute."
"Blip counting allows a document to be indexed with "Book", "Chapter", "Page" or "Folder", "Document", "Page" numbers. After the pages are found the Book.Chapter.Page number can be entered, and VS will instantly position at that point in the scan.
