The Micro-Image Capture 8 is the latest in digital microfilm and microfiche image capture technology from Micro-Image Capture featuring an Ultra high resolution Sony Exmor-R 20MP CMOS Imager  that connects via USB 3.0. Medical grade microscopy optics and HD electronics with fast 15 fps refresh rate allows for full-size, real-time quality viewing on-screen, printing and digital capture of both 16mm and 35mm large format microfilm images.   

Completely portable, the MIC8 gets power & communicates via host PC's USB 3.0 ports for ultra fast information and 15 fps image streaming. Use with a PC workstation or with a laptop for a completely mobile microfiche/ AP card capture solution.

Compatible with Windows XP platforms on up to Windows 7/8 & 10 (32 & 64bit) & MAC O/S.  You get Twain, C/C++, C# and DShow drivers as well so you can use the MIC8 system with compatible 3rd party imaging software.

The new optional MRFC-1 Motorized Roll Film Carrier option provides convenient electronic advance and rewind in slow, medium and high speed at the touch of a button. An excellent feature when working with 16 & 35mm microfilm rolls. Adding either manual or motorized roll film options makes the system a universal carrier, so the fiche/AP card carrier is still active while the motorized roll film carrier is in place and ready to use.
The MIC8 was designed for applications that require an ultra high resolution like Aperture Cards and 35mm Roll Film and Jackets that contain large format images like newspaper, engineering drawings, schematics, blueprints and plot maps. Capture an image with a simple keystroke or with included USB Footswitch and save to your PC as a digital file or send to your network printer for a hard copy. The Micro-Image Capture 8 features a 7-54X optical zoom range perfect for both 16mm & 35mm microfilm images on fiche, jackets, aperture cards and roll film.
Fast and easy adjustment of magnification and focus is achieved via precision high quality optics and mechanical camera stage. Light and solid anodized billet aluminum base unit and fiche handler provides auto mechanical glass lift and is built tough with quality linear bearings for precision movement and long product life.
Capture software provides for many adjustments to image quality like contrast, brightness, and resolution as well as optical flip, image rotate and image polarity invert (from neg microfilm to positive onscreen image). Send images instantly to your printer, e-mail or to a designated pc folder with one keystroke. Output image format types include PDF, TIFF, JPG, PNG, PSD, BMP, CAL, GIF, CAL, WPG and others.
Capture images in one second! Create live capture area on the GUI to quickly capture a single document and send to the network printer, save to a folder or e-mail. Software also allows for real time recording of microfilm viewing (genealogy & research presentations) and comes with PDF OCR Software you can use post capture. Set up a capture "hot zone" on your monitor and capture images by pressing the foot-switch for fast production style scanning.
The unit comes standard with a fiche carrier that holds Fiche, Jackets and aperture cards, USB 3.0 PCI-e Card, Foot-switch, View/Scan Software, PDF OCR Software, cables and installation/instruction guide.
