Northbrook, Illinois, Jan. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – For the eighth consecutive year, ST Imaging’s ViewScan 4 microfilm scanner has been honored with the Platinum Modern Library Awards (MLAs) from LibraryWorks. ST Imaging, a brand of Digital Check, is a global leader in the design and manufacture of digital microfilm monitors/scanners, and is the only microfilm scanner manufacturer to have consistently received Platinum MLA for eight years.
“We are thrilled to once again be recognized as the best microfilm scanner in the library market by librarians,” says Matt Anderson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ST Imaging. “We are committed to continuing to develop and improve the user experience of ViewScan 4 and PerfectView.”
When designing ViewScan 4 and PerfectView, we received direct feedback from the industry on how these features were implemented and how to make them easy to use. The result is a simplified, color-coded, and streamlined user experience that makes working with microfilm fast and fun. While older readers/printers and other microfilm scanners can be difficult to use, ViewScan makes uploading and scanning movies quick, fun, and easy. ViewScan also allows users to share their discoveries like never before.
At ST Imaging, we understand that most customers are not experts in the field of digital image capturing. Our system describes our camera size as we expect most of our customers to understand it, as you would a mobile phone or digital camera. ViewScan 4 is equipped with an original 18-megapixel image sensor. This means that there are 18 million pixels that capture the focused light and instantly provide an image to the screen. Competitive scanners may use a different identification for their camera. Make sure you have accurate information about the on-camera image sensor in your microfilm scanner and if in any doubt, ask for a side-by-side comparison.
“It is great to see ST Imaging and ViewScan 4 being recognized year after year as the leading microfilm scanning device in the library market,” said Jenny Newman, Publisher and Director of the MLA Program.
