We are dedicated to investing in cutting edge digitization technologies for our vast and diverse clientele. As our customer demand for high quality digitization has grown, The Axis SoftMedia Inc. continues to deploy solutions within Axis that adapt to a multitude of applications and requirements. We don’t just scan; Axis produces accurate, and if the application warrants, archival quality digital images resulting from a variety of original materials. Our services are all-inclusive, relieving our clients of the burden of seeking out multiple vendors in hopes of attaining a balanced solution. We often are asked to make recommendations on specifications for multiple derivatives based on how the images will be utilized and where they will ultimately reside. Regardless of the item’s characteristics and overall project scope, we have the equipment, personnel, and expertise to do the job right from start to finish.
Whether your project entails digitizing library books, corporate records, historic collections, books slated for POD, one of a kind works, lab notebooks, magazines, or any other type of bound content, Axis has the right solution in place. All of our bound digitization equipment utilizes cradle technology to alleviate stress on the spine of your books. If your books are duplicates, or you are interested in only capturing the information through OCR, we can professionally disbind the books in our bindery prior to scanning and, if needed, rebind the materials for long term storage.
Mortgage documentation, HR records, resumes, personnel files, student/teacher records or transcripts, invoices, accounts payable items, insurance applications, health care forms, bank records, legal documents, proof of delivery, receipts, index cards, or any other loose materials have special inherent requirements, depending on each items condition. Through our ongoing investment in cut sheet and flat bed scanning technologies, we assist our customers in accurate capture that helps them become more cost efficient by providing fast access to their mission critical documents. Some loose materials can be scanned utilizing Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) devices, others require special handling one by one on a flat bed scanner. Many back-file conversions (on or off site) or ongoing projects need preparation of the documents (removing staples, paper clips, “dog ears”, tape, etc.) prior to scanning. Axis can easily handle all scenarios based on our clients’ long-term service goals with whatever frequency makes the most sense for improving your work flow. Axis is a cost effective and valuable conduit for your company’s ongoing retrieval needs and ultimate success.
Do you have boxes of 16mm and 35mm (film) or 105mm (fiche) at risk of getting lost or damaged and relatively inaccessible to a vast audience? If you own the original source document and are confused about whether to scan from the microform or the hard copy materials, we can help with that decision. Our team can make the appropriate recommendations based on the condition of the film, and it isn’t always an all or nothing choice. When the choice is made to digitize microform, we guarantee that every roll and sheet we digitize is captured 100% completely, and that there are no skipped frames, improperly cropped pages, etc. in the images we deliver to our customers. Our clients benefit from high quality captured images, Including OCR and NDNP compliant files expertly captured from microfilmed newspaper images.
Audio and Video
VHS, Beta, 8mm, Hi 8, standard definition, HD video formats as well as reel to reel, 8 track, cassette or CD we can handle the digital conversion of it all. The challenge any organization faces when dealing with the digital conversion of audio and video materials is this vast range of medium that has been used to store this content. Hence, the resulting range of equipment necessary to convert all these different types of content requires a significant infrastructure investment. Our partnership with one the oldest and most renowned providers of audio and video conversion services deliver this unique service to our customers. Not only do we receive a volume discount, our clients benefit from ongoing project management by an Axis team member. By expanding our digital conversion service offering, we are once again providing our customers with a one stop shop for all of your digital conversion needs.
