each financial institution in the
San Antonio Office territory

SUBJECT
Introduction of Check Image Services
DETAILS
The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas is pleased to announce the expansion of
Check Image services to the San Antonio Office beginning August 12, 1996.
Check imaging will be available to financial institutions who subscribe to
Image Enhanced Truncation or Image Enhanced MICR Presentment Plus services.
Image technology will enable the Fed to offer an enhanced level of service by improving
the response time for check retrievals and by providing greater access to check informa­
tion. To maximize flexibility, image service options can be used in the combination that
best suits a financial institution’s operation.
The Fed can also capture MICR data, truncate checks, and provide the
options discussed below to institutions for over-the-counter items. Details concerning
this service will be handled on a case-by-case basis. A description of each service is
listed below.
