Why scan photos and slides?


The Mediafix GmbH in Cologne was founded 2012. The Company specializes in the digitization of analogue image media, which include eg slide photos, old film reels or video cassettes.

Demand for potential customers is high and since its inception, Mediafix has scanned almost 20 millions of images. And that's no wonder: It should be like many of me who wanted to clear out a few slides before the move or find the old photos and slides in the attic, but not quite sure what to do with it. Finally, obsolete devices such as slide projector and screen simply take up unnecessary space.

And sometimes it is simply about pictures. In my case scanning was necessary because some of the slides were already infected with fungus. So you should not be in the wrong security, the old screens in the cellar would be well looked after, but more accurate look.

Affordable scan service with good quality


So I went to the search for a cheap service and was at Mediafix The founder, Hans-Günter Herrmann, came to the idea of ​​scanning through a family meeting.

The digitization devices are self-developed, so the employees have to be specially trained. Mediafix has even created a five-day training course, which ends with an examination to the Mediendigitalisierer. 50 employees now have Mediafix.

How does scanning work?


You can deliver your media yourself in Cologne or send it by mail and pick up the corresponding heavy packages even at home - despite some fears on my part, the slides are indeed well received.

In order to commission the digitization process, you must fill out a corresponding form, which is attached to the consignment.

It is also recommended to attach your own hard drive: Mediafix burns the eiderscanned bider otherwise also on DVDs, calculated however per DVD 5 Euro extra, for a USB stick from 10 Euro and for a hard disk 65 Euro.

Der Preis


However, the prices are quite favorable: From 2.501 Dias costs scanning is from 0,08 Euro per piece in the lowest resolution of 2.900 dpi, on request also various additional services such as compressed air cleaning, image rotation or labeling. The maximum resolution is 4.500 dpi.

This shows the advantage of the fact that quality standards are adhered to: Mediafix trains its employees in material knowledge, quality guidelines, different types of media as well as the operation of the devices, as explained by Mediafix founder Hans-Günther Herrmann.

Favorable price through standardized processes


Twelve new employees are trained each year. The increased cost of further training pays off: Mediafix can also offer good quality at a reasonable price because many workflows have been standardized and special equipment and processes have been created for the needs of the customers.

The well-trained employees can also be used for other tasks - for example, in customer service. And they help to constantly improve the quality of the product.

Quality counts


"The current cleaning process for our devices was developed and tested by the digitizers. And also the compressed air procedure was improved in the course of the noise protection, "explains company founder Herrmann.

The entire process of digitizing itself lasted four weeks in my case, then you get a message that the slides and digital media are sent back. MediFix unfortunately does not offer any disposal of the analog media.

Scanned images in comparison


And my personal opinion about the quality of the scanned media? I'm excited! Because the quality of the digital images corresponds absolutely to their analogue templates. Absolutely recommendable for the price.

It is also very useful to have the pictures reworked, as seen in the examples here in the text: Above the postprocessed image, below the scanned original.
