Digitize your precious Memory Gems with our Single Archive Command


Efficient, safe, easy!

The SilverFast Single Archive Command is an outstanding and unmatched solution for scanning large quantities of images with just one click. A special scanner raw data workflow ensures that no data is lost from scanning to processing!

The Single Archive Command is a supplement to our SilverFast scanner software, which makes scanning as easy as never before. With just a few mouse clicks, you can start scanning. SAC comes with presets which make typical scanning scenarios particularly easy. The presets follow the most important basic rules of image processing and thus make an enormous contribution to high-quality scans.

Thanks to this presets, the digitization process requires no knowledge of image processing and no complicated configuration of the software. This means that virtually anyone can digitize without making mistakes.

Image processing is then performed at a later point when the user has grown comfortable with image processing. As a user, you don‘t have to wait for a scan to be completed to working on the digital data which is much more efficient. This process is supported by the JobManager, which is specially designed for batch image processing.

The Single Archive Command is the logical further development of the Archive Suite concept: in order to be able to save even large archives of images from aging, decay and fungal attack quickly, the scanning process was simplified even further.

With the Single Archive Command, the time-consuming configuration before each scan is no longer necessary. Presets allow you to start the scanning process with just one click.

Basically there are two types of scans, which we distinguish. One type can be executed with the Single Archive Command and one has to be done manually. For slides and 35mm film there are film holders which can be used with a fully automatic image detection. For those images, the Single Archive Command is an excellent choice. Everything else requires manual frame adjustment during scanning and thus needs to be done in the manual mode.
