Microfilm has been a trusted media to store records over the past 100 years.  Organizations have stored documents on both 16 mm and 35 mm microfilm.  These rolls can hold thousands of documents per roll.  This was great for the customer 20 or more years ago but if you have recently been tasked with finding documents on microfilm, you know the challenges you faced trying to find the specific documents.  Finding the roll itself can be time consuming and once you find the roll, you need a microfilm reader to help you read the film.  Once loaded in the machine, you can spend hours looking for the actual page or document you need.

Inception has converted well over 100 million pages from microfilm.  Organizations of all sizes trust Inception to get the job done in a timely and accurate manner.

Why You Should Convert Your Microfilm to Digital Files

Microfilm like any physical media has a shelf life and must be stored in the proper conditions.  Even in the most ideal storage environment, microfilm can deteriorate.  If your microfilm has any of the following conditions, you should strongly consider converting the files soon.

  • Does the film have a vinegar smell?
  • Is the film brittle or cracking?
  • Are there any blemishes or spotting on the film?
  • Is the film sticky?
  • Do you notice any fungus on the film?

These are all signs of serious deterioration and should be addressed before it is impossible to use the film.
