Penny Imaging releases microfiche digitizer
Penny Imaging Exchange (PIE) has acquired new technology from Germany to process the conversion of microfiche records to digital form--the DRS Digitizer.

Unlike current scanners which scan across an image at a slow rate, PIE said its DRS Digitizer uses modern CCD cameras providing a full image snapshot and digitization into grayscale for archival image quality.

"This is a completely new approach to digitize microfiche records offering better validation and indexing," the Bohemia, N.Y.-based company said.
