Converting microfiche to a PDF (Portable Document Format) is an economical way to preserve files, provide easier access and offer advanced search features. PDF files are also more clearly categorised, viewed and require less specialised equipment. Transportation is also simplified as the documents will now be in electronic format. Converting microfiche into PDF files is possible with the use of specialised scanners like NextScan microfiche scanners, Mekel scanners, Sunrise scanners and others.
