FUJIFILM DISPLAYS LONG TERM MICROFILM STORAGE AND PRESERVATION SOLUTIONS AT AIIM 2009

Introduction of New Archive Media Plus Complete Document Archive System Offers Secure and Efficient Approach to Safeguarding Valuable Information

Valhalla, NY, March 30, 2009 – FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. today announced that it will showcase its microfilm document archive solutions at AIIM 2009 in Philadelphia, PA, namely the AR-1000 Document Archive System and two proprietary silver halide film types, Archive Media AM-66 and the new Archive Media AM-33. The AR-1000 Document Archive System directly records digital data onto the compatible microfilm which has an ISO certified life of 500 years for safe, secure document storage and management.

“Microfilm is difficult to alter without detection, is highly resistant to damage, and is hardware-independent making document recovery possible from generation to generation,” said Randy Petree, national sales manager, Fujifilm Recording Media, U.S.A, Inc. “More and more, microfilm is becoming the archive media of choice for historical and government documents as well as legal documents and genealogical histories, for example, because it can stand up to the test of time. We look forward to demonstrating how Fujifilm can help provide a reliable and trustworthy archive solution again this year at AIIM.”

Document Archive System AR-1000
Fujifilm’s AR-1000 Document Archive System is network enabled and offers high-speed recording of 400 pages per minute. A dual film magazine increases workflow operations and minimizes manual intervention without compromising speed. Its 5.9 target on film is equal to 300dpi output and autorotation automatically rotates and orients all images with typewritten text. The user-friendly Virtual AR™ job setup software allows for the preview of information transferred to film and offers a document management solution from creation through storage and destruction.

Archive Media AM-66 and AM-33
Each of Fujifilm’s PET-based silver halide archive media offers optimal sensitivity for red LED, panchromatic sensitivity for the vivid duplication of images, and a resolving power of 850 lines/mm. Archive Media AM-66 has a 2.5 mil thickness and is 16mmx66m/215ft, while the new AM-33 has a 5 mil thickness and is 16mmx30.5m/100ft, catering to low volume applications. AM-33 will run from a separate magazine than AM-66, further increasing the efficiency of operations.

Fujifilm’s AR-1000 and Archive Media AM-66 are now available through Fujifilm’s distribution partners. Archive Media AM-33 will be available in June 2009. For more information on this and other services available from Fujifilm Recording Media, visit www.fujifilmusa.com/recordingmedia.
