We have a file dump from Wausau Financial Systems containing metadata and check image files. The header is IHWFSIMAGE<date>

File has separators "BH" at the top of file.  "BT" and "FT" at the bottom.
Separators for the images look like  "IH" then .dd and the account number.

Any ideas what this could be and how these files can be extracted?
Looking to export them to pdf and ocr them eventually.

Thanks,
Max
