The ImageMouse is as compact and easy to use as your mouse on your desktop PC. The base, the size of a pad of 8 1/2 x 11 paper, illuminates a 4" x 6" area to view your microfiche. The ImageMouse glides horizontally and vertically over this base to digitize and display the image instantly on your PC, in real time. The ImageMouse replaces your bulky reader or reader printer without compromising the image quality.
Easy Click and Point Operation
The software included with the ImageMouse enables the user to enlarge, mirror, rotate, crop and reverse the image polarity and save the digital image in a TIFF, BMP, or JPEG file format if required. The images can then be printed, forwarded as an e-mail attachment or faxed to the requestor. Employing the Windows® based graphical user interface, the ImageMouse is remarkably easy to operate. Virtually all system functions can be performed with the simple click of the ImageMouse button.
The ImageMouse uses a completely new approach to digital imaging never incorporated into any other Reader, Reader-Printer, or Film Scanner. This state-of-the-art technology yields better digital quality, a more compact size, and uses fewer moving parts. The result is a better product at a dramatically lower price both to purchase and to maintain. The price will vary depending on the features and the configuration needed for your type of film media and size of images. The ImageMouse, including hardware, software, and maintenance, costs thousands of dollars less than conventional Reader-Printer and Scanner systems. The ImageMouse is so affordable, users simply can't afford to be without the time saving and cost saving capabilities it provides.
The image mouse tablet is available for only (2) magnification ranges. 24X /28X magnification and the 42X / 48X magnification. Be sure that your film fits these requirements before placing and order.

* If your PC has USB 1.1 technology and you have other USB devices installed such as, USB mouse, Keyboard, Printer, Hard Drive, USB Flash Memory etc., you will likely have USB connectivity problems as the Image Mouse requires about 80% of the USB 1.1 bandwidth. Order and install a seperate USB 2.0 PCI Card on your PC so that the Image Mouse will not have to share bandwidth with other devices and it will operate much more efficiently with the newer Hi-Speed USB transfer rate. See options list.
