High Speed Aerial film Scanner

GeoDyn introduces PromptSCAN_2, its innovative image conversion and processing technology. This scanner permits the digitizing of aerial photographs an order of magnitude faster and at costs much lower than was previously possible; providing affordable access to the huge data of archived aerial photography.

Do you have racks of aerial film cans containing valuable information about your country that are not digitally accessible but are taking up valuable storage space? In the past you hoped to have them scanned, but found the cost and time prohibitive!

Now, you can quickly and inexpensively transform your archived aerial films into a valuable asset. PromptSCAN_2 is the next generation of the Prompt Aerial Film Scanners that utilizes solid state camera design and advanced image processing to make achievable what was previously unattainable.

Rapidly and accurately transform all your films into a digital asset
