Harness Legacy information for greater value

Gain access to and extract billions of bytes of data from legacy microfilm collections and leverage it for greater informational value while delivering on-line access in support of structured content. Now legacy microfilm content can be "re-purposed" and integrated with current structured data and day-forward image repositories.


High Quality, High Resolution Conversion

DRC processes include the generation of high quality 12 – bit grayscale "digital original" copies of microfilm images resulting in the delivery of binarized output generating for clients the best combination of image quality and file size. When digitzing large microfilm collections, requests for microfilm images are made accessible to authorized users through DRC’s Urgent Request Portal.



Years of Experience

DRC was the first service bureau in Canada to provide high volume digital-microfilm conversion services dating back to 1994. DRC’s conversion experience includes scanning and indexing legacy microfilm content for organizations including a provincial Energy Regulator who required the cnversion of 1 million micofiche and 30 million images.

Today, DRC stores over 100,000 rolls of microfilm in our secure microfilm-to-digital on-line Microfilm Request Service operation delivering on-demand access to legacy microfilm images within minutes.
