Fujifilm Introduces First LE500 Rated Microfilm Optimized For All Led Based Digital Image To 16mm Raster Image Recorders
Ultra sharp Archive Media FM microfilm top choice for long-term preservation of vital documents and records and digital data back up
Valhalla, N.Y., May 15, 2015 — Fujifilm adds to its industry-leading line of microfilm products with an ISO LE500 rated microfilm optimized to be utilized by all 16mm LED exposure systems currently in use today. These systems are commonly known as archive writing systems. This technological breakthrough facilitates the process of creating superior quality, long-term back up of essential information required by government agencies, research libraries and other vital records centers.
“Until now, document imaging service bureaus had to use two different microfilms, one for Fujifilm Archive Recorders and one for other LED based systems such as any Kodak branded system which may still be in place,” said Randy Petree, national account manager, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Industrial and Corporate New Business Development Division. “Our new Archive Media FM microfilm works with both, and is a big improvement for non-Fujifilm archive media users, not only do they now have another film choice, but the new Fujifilm FM film has also been designed to provide higher resolution, lower Dmin, and optimal image quality compared to other archive media currently in use.”
Fujifilm Archive Media FM microfilm is an ideal choice for vital records centers that require long-term preservation of critical documents and data such as land ownership deeds, land titles and birth and death records. Fujifilm Archive Media FM microfilm is an ultra sharp microfilm with a new emulsion and anti-halation layer specially formulated to provide high resolution, optimal contrast, and outstanding image quality with improved base clearness for low minimum density. Archivists and records managers often rely on digital copies of vital information for quick, easy access through document management systems. However, digital files do not provide a secure, long-term solution. Changes in viewing system software or other parts of the technology, the threat of computer viruses and the potential loss of digital files are just some of the possible threats to the permanence of a digital record. To ensure true, long-term information preservation, these digital files should be duplicated onto microfilm using a reliable archive recording system.
The Fujifilm Archive System is one proven solution in the Archive System market in recent years. Until the introduction of Fujifilm Archive Media FM microfilm, LED based archiving systems could not use the same archive media with optimal results. With the new Fujifilm Archive Media FM microfilm, LED based systems can now produce microfilm images of extremely high quality, clarity and resolution.
“The Fujifilm FM Archive Media simplifies things for us because we run both Fujifilm and Kodak archive writers,” said Michael Power, programmer/analyst at the Windward Group, a records duplication service bureau that participated in Fujifilm’s beta testing of the new Archive Media FM film. “Having one high quality microfilm that works for both systems helps us control our inventory better and makes it easier to train our people.”
