A digital to Microfilm conversion creates fiche cards or roll film. Computer Output to Microfilm or COM, converts data type information and creates COM microfiche cards or COM 16mm microfilm rolls. Information of this type can be reduced to make very small frames. Data of this type can be reduce 28 to 48 times. Step and Repeat is another digital to microfilm process . The difference is that COM uses data to make frames and step and repeat can contain other types of documents. Once the digital to microfilm conversion is completed, the information on the microfilm can only be read if viewed through a microfilm viewer because the data is to small to be seen with the naked eye.
