We specialize in scanning, enhancing and preserving the information contained in photostatic records and other documents that require sophisticated image enhancement.
Photostats are the result of the first photocopying process that was introduced in the early 1950s. These documents are characterized by white letters on a black background and are often of poor quality. Because of their low contrast and unusual appearance, making satisfactory microfilm or digital reproductions of these documents is often difficult and, at times, impossible.
To solve this problem, we have developed a scanning system that uses specialized image processing software. This system is specifically designed to improve contrast, suppress bleed through and reverse the negative appearing image to a normal black on white document
