Digitization Services

Zissor offers a complete service package for digitizing newspaper and magazine archives.

We can scan from both microfilm and paper and we have done millions of pages for different publishers who wanted to digitize their complete archives.

We have a lot of experience in this particular field, and we know what obstacles that might arise. Our knowledge paired with our unique software assures you as a client to get the best possible result from your digitization project.

Digitizing your archive is something you should do only once. Do it right the first time. In addition to digitizing the scans we also include digitizing your PDF's to the same format so that you get a uniform archive in JPG, PDF and XML. All formats are flexible for your needs so that you can choose your own Portal for search and view in addition to including it in your internal archive for the journalists.
