We’re available to be used as a press resource or for interviews for topics on faxing and document and electronic transmission.
Please use the contact page to get in touch with us.
As well, we have the following pre-prepared sessions that we’ve used with other media outlets:
History of Fax
The year the American Civil War ended (and 11 years before the invention of the Telephone) there was a service in place that could transmit images over a wire between Paris and Lyons, France.
A century and a half later, the technology has evolved, but the principle remained the same – converting an image into an electronic signal that is transmitted and decoded into an image in a different place.
Fax and the World of Today
Fax – it’s so frustrating so why is it still used today?
In some cases, it’s just because “it’s the way it’s always been” and “everyone else is using it, ” but in others, here is still a real world application for using fax to transmit documents.
It happens more often than you’d think – a wrong fax number gets published in an organization’s private directory and someone outside the organization starts receiving fax after fax after fax. People’s personal health records, banking statements, employer agreements – all transmitted outside of the organization.
Then the real nightmare starts – the person receiving the faxes tries to get it to stop – but after trying to get in contact with the organization is dismissed and the faxes keep coming.
