Production Microfiche Scanner with Automatic Feeder
The Titan scanner with NextStar High Performance Workflow Software delivers the highest scan speeds for microfiche
scanning in a production environment, and brings the cost of
microfiche scanning to an affordable price point for many
users. Titan features a large automatic fiche feeder, and
incorporates nextScan’s exclusive, LuminTec™ light line illumination
system, next generation high quality lens, specially designed Ribbon Storage Device (RSD) and revolutionary
Titan with NextStar has a production throughput (load, scan,
process and unload) speed of 270 images per minute for jacketed
fiche, 230 images per minute for COM fiche, and can accommodate
many other types of fiche. Titan’s automatic feeder holds
up to 1000 fiche depending on thickness (can hold up to 5”
of fiche), enabling optimized throughput with minimal operator
intervention. Additionally, the fiche load and unload time
for Titan is half of other products offered today.
Titan features a unique, advanced light line illumination
system developed exclusively by nextScan called LuminTec. LuminTec effectively
increases overall image resolution, even at very high conversion
increasing file size. Environmentally friendly LuminTec uses
1/10 of the power of conventional incandescent illumination systems.
Titan comes with a specially designed Ribbon Storage Device (RSD) to enable simultaneous capture and output, maximizing scanner throughput and allowing for QA/Audit during or after the scan, even from multiple workstations.
Titan, featuring LuminTec, NextStar, a next generation high
quality lens and the largest feeder on the market today, provides
fast processing of sharp images with better edge definition,
contributes to higher OCR accuracy after the scan process,
and promotes cost savings through its automated features.

NextStar Software Functionality
The NextStar High Performance Workflow Software that comes with Titan incorporates an innovative
processing methodology called "Ribbon Scanning".
An entire fiche is digitized from top-to-bottom and end-to-end
in grayscale and stored as a single ribbon file.
Ribbon Scanning solves many of the challenges encountered
today in the conversion process from microfilm to digital
allows the user to verify that all images were properly captured,
and enhance image quality as needed. Ribbon Scanning captures all images in raw, uncompressed form using true optical dpi. NextStar’s Audit module
offers a set of tools at your fingertips to allow the operator
to QC, correct and enhance all images in a post-scan environment.
NextStar eliminates the need for rescans resulting from density
or frame detection problems, maximizing scanner utilization
and productivity - allowing you to output images that actually
match your database.
NextStar enables the user to manage the end-to-end conversion
process. It is modular and expandable. From basic set-ups
where all components run on the Titan scanner, to large distributed
production systems, the software components communicate between
multiple platforms and work is scheduled and shared between
For applications with the very highest image quality for archival requirements such as scanning of degraded historical documents or newspapers, NextStar High Definition (HD) is an option. The HD version of NextStar includes all of the features of the regular NextStar software, plus can provide up to 12 bit uncompressed output images, which enable even higher OCR accuracy for projects where this is a must.
