NORTHBROOK, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ST Imaging, a worldwide leader in the design and manufacturing of digital microfilm viewer/scanners is pleased to announce their second straight Platinum award from LibraryWorks’ second annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs). The ST ViewScan is the only microfilm scanner to have won the Platinum MLA both years.
“We are honored that the ST ViewScan received the Platinum Award from the MLA judges for the second consecutive year. This award recognizes and affirms our commitment to provide libraries with industry-leading solutions for viewing microfilm,” said Bruce Rennecker, Vice President of ST Imaging.
The MLAs were created to recognize top products in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Products were submitted by companies and collected by LibraryWorks, which distributes them to their database of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers who have had experience with these products in their facilities were permitted to judge the products, resulting in a truly unbiased score.
ST Imaging continues to revolutionize the world of microfilm by advancing and redefining the capabilities and expectations of microfilm scanners. In 2015, ST Imaging released new color capture capability for their custom designed 14 megapixel color image sensor, the largest of any microfilm scanner today. The camera allows the ST ViewScan III to create crisp, clear, color images of even the smallest information stored on microfilm, microfiche, and even 35mm slides.
Designed around the patron experience, the ST View Scan III is regarded as the microfilm scanner that is the easiest to learn and use. While older reader/printers and other microfilm scanners can be difficult to use, the ST ViewScan III makes loading film quick and easy. With familiar film controls on the scanner and intuitive graphical user interface, the software creates a recognizable setting for almost everyone. The ST ViewScan III also allows users to share their discoveries like never before. Patrons can quickly save to a USB drive, Google Drive, Dropbox, email, FamilySearch, OCLC, and of course, can print.
