Allied Images appointed UK & Ireland distributor for ST Imaging microfilm scanners

ViewScan III is the most advanced microfilm scanning solution available today.

Allied Images has been appointed UK & Ireland distributor for ST Imaging – a leading provider of digital microfilm and book scanning technology solutions.

ST Imaging announced in the summer the release of the third generation of the ST ViewScan Microfilm.

The ST ViewScan III microfilm scanner with an all-new 14 megapixel USB 3.0 camera is the most advanced microfilm scanning solution available today.

“This new high resolution camera will allow users to see more details in the film as well as digitally zoom in closer than ever before,” says Bruce Rennecker, Vice President of ST Imaging.

“Our microfilm viewer/scanner has always been known as the easiest system to use and now our native image quality is unmatched.”

The ST ViewScan III’s camera has a USB 3.0 interface which is now the standard on Windows 7 or 8.1 computers making installations fast and easy.

The 14 megapixel colour camera creates sharp, clear, high-resolution images when viewing black and white or colour film, fiche or opaque cards.

The new camera combined with ST Imaging’s standard 7x to 105x zoom lens allows any film to be brought back to life.

The new ST ViewScan III microfilm scanner ships with standard viewing and image capture software. The optional ST Premium software has been enhanced. New features include:

  • OCLC integration for fast and easy interlibrary loan fulfilments from film#
  • FamilySearch integration allows images to be saved directly to a user’s account
  • Automatic image cropping and de-skewing
  • Jamex charge for use integration

Steve Morin, Allied Images’ managing director said: “ViewScan III is an ideal walk-up, on-demand microfilm viewer/scanner for libraries as it offers ease-of-use combined with high-performance.

“The company has also recently secured the first sale of a ViewScan III scanner/viewer to a university library in north eastern England.”
