Physical content is first prepared for the scanning process by the removal of all foreign objects, repair of damaged material, and insertion/creation of barcodes (optional) to speed the scanning and indexing process. This process also assures the images will have proper orientation and legibility.
Scanning of paper documents, books, engineering drawings, microfilm / microfiche is performed with high speed production scanners capable of handling duplex processing and multiple page sizes with automatic double feed protection. Content may be processed in black and white, gray scale and color. Output can be in any resolution range from 200 to 600 DPI. This stage of the process also accounts for all content scanned.
Automated / Manual Indexing:
Each digital image produced during scanning will be indexed individually or in group fashion; any classification/indexing scheme desired by the customer is supported. This process is automated as much as possible through the use of bar codes and/or customer provided databases that are used as input to the index files. However, manual indexing is also performed as required. In most situations indexing is a semi-automated process.
Although the process described emphasizes finding and correcting poor image quality and/or index errors early on, this stage insures that the final output is of the highest quality and accuracy.
