into a fully searchable digital archive
Enivation, a branded service of NPC, Inc., uses a non-destructive publication scanning and archiving solution to take your older, sensitive physical publications — whether they are hard cover or soft cover books, magazines, journals, periodicals, manuals or newspapers — and turn them into a fully searchable digital library.
Our publication scanning solution creates a seamless transition from in-your-hand materials to on-your-screen documents. A dedicated staff takes extra-special care to preserve the physical integrity of all of your materials. And if security is a concern, your materials will be handled and scanned in a low-traffic, secure location within our secure production facility.
Our book scanners use a v-shaped holding frame so your publications can be opened and scanned face-up, without putting any unnecessary stress on the binding of your books. This non-destructive process helps maintain the physical appearance of your books while delivering the most accurate, crisp scans possible.
Do you have large format books or magazines? The Enivation solution uses book scanners that can accommodate a maximum scanning area of 16 inches wide and 24 inches high. For document scanning, high-speed flatbed scanners provide the same OCR and image scanning precision as our book scanners.
Our approach to scanning focuses on the quality and accuracy of each page we convert, making sure that the documents you store are usable and functional for years to come.
Enivation uses high-quality OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to generate fully searchable PDF (Portable Document Format) files so you can easily retrieve information with keyword searches. And by using widely-accessible PDF files, the free Adobe® Reader® software is all that is needed to view your archived documents.
If your organization does not require full-text searchable documents, Enivation’s solution can save your books and publications as images in PDF, TIF or JPEG formats. And we can deliver your archived digital files on CD, DVD, USB drive or external hard drive, or we can transfer directly to your servers via FTP or secure FTP.
