3M AND WESCO SIGN AGREEMENT TO DEVELOP FILM SCANNING STATION

 3M AND WESCO SIGN AGREEMENT TO DEVELOP FILM SCANNING STATION
 ST. PAUL, Minn., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- 3M (NYSE: MMM) Office Document Systems Division, St. Paul, and West Coast Information Systems, Inc. (WESCO), Walnut Creek, Calif., announced that they have signed an agreement to develop a film scanning station for Electronic Image Management (EIM) systems. This is a first-time offering of a product that will give users the ability to inexpensively access existing microfilm archives within an imaging system.
 Under the agreement, WESCO will develop a Microfilm Digitizing Station based on the 3M 7710 Reader-Scanner for use in EIM systems. The digitizing station will capture roll film and microfiche frames as digital images, format the images to the specification of the target EIM system, and then pass them via network to the EIM system.
 Through use of the station, end users will be able to capture information currently stored on microform media for use in their imaging system. Because the digitizing station is directly connected to the imaging system network, users are able to get rapid on-demand access to documents archived on film.
 The product will be offered by WESCO with maintenance support provided by 3M. The first configuration of the product will be for direct-connect to a FileNet imaging system. Following its release, configurations in direct-connect to IBM ImagePlus and other EIM systems will be available.
 3M Office Document Systems Division offers the 7710 Reader-Scanner, and other related micrographics and Dry Processed Imaging Technology products. WESCO is an image technology company specializing in conversion services and scanning solutions for Electronic Image Management Systems.
