Quantum Scan

Mekel Technology’s next generation of roll-film scanning and processing software technology


No matter what the technology is called, when it comes to full-roll ribbon scanning, Mekel Technology’s Quantum software scanning and processing technologies offer superior image capture, quality, processing and savings benefits.

Increase operator production

Scan at full-rated speeds without operator intervention Share quality assurance tasks with multiple operators
Drive multiple MACH V microfilm scanners with a single operator

Reduce microform scanning costs

Never search for lost images Eliminate the need to rescan

100% image capture guaranteed

Optimum image quality

Advantages of Quantum software

Easy To Use

Automatic Frame Detection Regardless of size, Quantum Scan will find any frame automatically on a scanned roll without the need for
complicated set-up wizards – 100% image capture guaranteed


Using varying resolution and reduction scenarios, the Mekel MACH V can operate at speeds up to 500 frames per minute.

Optimum Resolution

Offers the highest optical resolution on the market with an 8192 pixel CCD Array

Template Options

Create job templates for like rolls, ensuring the continuation of quick and easy scanning

Image Quality Settings

Utilize independent grayscale and bi-tonal settings for onetime, easy set-up to ensure optimum image quality capture

Advanced Focus Option

Fine-tune focus within seconds for various film thicknesses to ensure optimum image quality

Pre-Scan Testing

Provides quick confirmation that images are correctly framed and that desired image quality has been achieved before
starting production scanning

Multiple Ribbon Output Options

Various strip output formats are available including: uncompressed TIFF, JPEG and bi-tonal TIFF

Advanced Frame Detection

QuantumScan detects simplex, duplex, comic and cine mode film formats on the fly

Easy Transfer

QuantumScan turns raw roll footage into manageable strips,
allowing for easy transfer to centralized storage and quality assurance

Easy Workflow Integration

QuantumScan enables scripting integration to launch
customized functionality within the software or for third party applications

Easy Workflow Integration

QuantumProcess enables scripting integration to launch customized functionality either within QuantumScan or third party applications

Image Enhancement

A full complement of enhancement features is available for image quality corrections on either an individual image, a selected group of images or an entire digital film roll Dual view. Allows for quick and easy tabular-style view of both the grayscale and bi-tonal version of the image under review Real-time. With a quick slide of the image enhancement toolbar, the operator receives immediate visual feedback of the selected settings within the image Editing tools. Take advantage of a full complement of image processing features to include crop, deskew, invert and rotate to name a few

File-Naming Features

Flexibility. QuantumProcess allows for user-definable file names and directories. Dual file output can be saved to the same or different/multiple file locations. Duplex-naming. Various options are available regarding desired duplex file-naming output Blip-naming. Have the ability to output various file names and/or group files by blip/image marks within the blip channel of the film

Auto-Split and Book Mode

Auto-detect and split oversized frames. Gutter overlap settings are also available to ensure that no data is cut off within the gutter portion of the open book image

“Go To” Command

Quickly and easily go to any frame selected within a roll for additional time savings

Re-Detect Frames

A useful option when different quality film is spliced together on a single roll, typically making it difficult for auto frame detection to find a group of images


Using QuantumScan, the need to reload has been completely eliminated. The MACH V 16/35mm microfilm scanner scans an entire roll of film in minutes, detecting all images and flagging those that need review. Whether reviewing an entire roll or just suspect frames, the operator has an array of manual and automatic features to ensure 100% accurate image detection.


QuantumProcess provides the opportunity to edit the image detection and make changes to both grayscale and bi-tonal image quality without ever having to reload a roll of film. Strips can be stored for the life of a project allowing the user to make as many changes as necessary to deliver the highest quality images in the market.


Quantum software has opened the world to “ugly” or poor quality film, which can now be scanned without missing images. Using QuantumProcess, these images can be scanned, processed and rendered as useable images. As a result of this capability, the new digital images can be used to create silver master films for long term preservation of poor quality or degraded film.
