MICROFICHE SCANNING AND DATA COLLECTION
ALL TYPES OF MICROFICHE DATA ACCESS
Computer Output Microfiche or COM fiche are produced by computers sending information to specialised printers. There are a variety of information stored on COM fiche but they most commonly relate to financial records or archives. Microfiche have customarily reduction ratio’s ranging from 42x or 48X – 208 or 270 pages of data.
This is a microfiche that has images of varying sizes, commonly 16mm and 35mm images. They are customarily located in archives designed to store both drawing and document images, merging into a single record.
This kind of microfiche is made up of 4×6 inch plastic sleeves. They contain strips of either 16 or 35mm film that are perfect for the grouping of related information into a single record.
This system is frequently employed by councils, architects, engineering and corporate human resource departments. This affords them safe, correct filing, along with retrieval of personalised records. The duplicated jacketed fiche commonly displays a bluish tint, highlighting the fact that they are copies of the originals. This accounts for the generally inferior quality images.
