Preserving and browsing documents is easier than ever with the ST ViewScan 4 from STimaging. Our microfilm equipment represents the best technology has to offer for archivists, librarians, genealogy hobbyists, government and more. Some of the biggest benefits of the ST ViewScan series include:

Outstanding Performance

Thanks to upgraded imaging technology, the ST ViewScan series provides the best possible performance you'll find in a microfilm machine. They offer low-power consumption, and they are easily upgradable whenever necessary.

Ease of Use

Simple, intuitive controls on the equipment's screen make ViewScan machines easy to use. Film loading is simple thanks to the single roller design. You can scan any size of film roll, microfiche, opaque micro card, aperture card, and more. Likewise, you can view the text on the film while moving from page to page.

No Pixilation

Other microfilm scanning machines have a problem with causing pixilation when refreshing live images. The ViewScan series avoids this problem, providing you with a crisp image every single time.

Internet Connectivity

Anyone using a ViewScan can share their film online, allowing people anywhere in the world to instantly view it. You can even broadcast live video feed of your images without having to scan pages.

ViewScan 4 Microfilm Scanner

Introducing the ViewScan 4 Microfilm Scanner

The next generation of microfilm equipment has arrived: meet the ViewScan 4. The latest entry in the ViewScan series builds off years of industry research and insight from professional design teams. ViewScan 4 takes the greatest features from earlier, award-winning models and combines them with modern software and usability to deliver an all-new user experience. Its features include:

ST PerfectView for Microfilm Scanning

ST PerfectView is a powerful new tool for microfilm researchers; it streamlines the browsing, scanning, and saving of the information. You can quickly read headlines without waiting for the image to refresh and become clear. Likewise, you can easily crop the article or scan the entire page. Each scan is then saved into the Image Ribbon (formerly known as the Image Bin.)

The Image Ribbon stores the scans during the session and can be recalled at any time. It can also be resized and enlarged to see the details not seen in the thumbnail. After microfilm scanning, the image can be saved in many different formats to multiple locations, including email, Google Drive, Dropbox, USB, and shared over inter-library loans. The file can also be sent to any network printer instantly.

Camera Options

The ViewScan 4 is available in a 9-megapixal an a 18-megapixel image sensor.

ST Perfect Focus

Precision motors on the ViewScan 4 allow for continuous sharp and easy-to-read images. From 35 mm roll film to small images on microfiche, users will see focused and vibrant images time after time.

On-Board PC Option

A first-time innovation for microfilm scanning equipment, the ViewScan 4 can come with an optional PC. Securely connected to the base of the scanner, the PC comes with the ST PerfectView software installed. Connect a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to the PC and you are ready to scan. The mouse is optional since the ST PerfectView is designed with touch screen capabilities.
