Crowley Company Announces the Formal Release of the UScan+ HD, the Next Generation in the UScan+ Line of Universal Microform Scanners
May 16 16
Crowley Company announced the formal release of the UScan+ HD, the next generation in the UScan+ line of universal microform scanners. Utilizing three decades of the Uscan+ HD with industry-high 18MP image sensor. Mekel and Wicks and Wilson technology, the company’s manufacturing arms, Crowley is now offering for this scanner type with an 18 megapixel active pixel sensor array for maximum image clarity. Microform includes: microfilm; microfiche; aperture cards; photo negatives; slides and more. The technology surrounding microfilm scanners has advanced significantly over the past few years. The market now demands features such as scan-to-cloud, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) compatibility and smart editing. These features are important advancements for users, but of little advantage in scanners with slow processing interfaces or poor image quality. The UScan+ HD’s 18 megapixel active pixel sensor array couples with a USB 3.0 interface to offer a scanning solution at an unmatched quality with unbeatable speed for both walk-up patrons and back office use. Institutions having need for the UScan+ HD include libraries, universities, historical societies and other recordkeeping institutions, particularly those that offer walk-up scanning services. End-user examples include students scanning research materials, genealogists pursuing historical references, investors seeking financial records and citizens researching deeds and other property history. The UScan+ HD has already been released in the United Kingdom to a positive reception. The UScan+ has been a hot ticket item in the U.K. for a few weeks now. Clients are enthusiastic about the advancements in the HD generation. Customers are thrilled by the resolution and love how easily the images can be edited. The Uscan+ HD’s image quality and line of customizable features will be showcased at the upcoming ALA Annual Conference in Orlando, FL from June 24 through the 27. Complimentary Expo-only passes are available using promotional code: V620.
