Benefits of High-Resolution Microfilm Records
Microfilming uses high resolution, high contrast film to capture documents. The reduced size makes duplicating and distributing a large volume of documents simple and cost-effective. Combine that with its excellent archival properties, and you begin to understand why microfilm is an excellent way to manage your documents.
Guaranteed File Integrity
Microfilmed documents are preserved just as they were filmed without the possibility of lost or misfiled pages. The nature of the media prevents editing of the documents after the fact. This is why microfilm documents are admissible in court.
Less Storage Space Needed
Typically, microfilm reduces your storage requirements by at least a factor of ten on letter-sized documents. The storage benefits are even greater for engineering drawings, newsprint, and blueprints.
