A scanner made in the USA specifically for books, periodicals and fragile documents. Scanning or copying pages from a book has always been an unwieldy task that risks damage to the book, with less than satisfactory results. Unlike typical flatbed scanners and copiers, the Book Scanner 9000 doesn't require the book to be turned over. Instead, it scans from overhead, protecting the book binding and at the same time producing high quality color, grayscale and black and white images.
Large Scan Area
Scan a book as large as 18 inches high x 28 inches wide when open, or a flat document of the same size. Books can be as thick as 4 inches and yet the Book Scanner 9000 delivers flat, distortion free images.
The BookScanner 9000 supports the most popular formats: TIFF, JPEG, JPEG2000, and PDF.
Image quality is the most important requirement to the user. The Book Scanner 9000 is designed for sharp, high quality images. Only the center of the lens is used to expose a narrow band of the original document to the 7500 pixel line CCD that travels across. This produces a high quality, distortion free, true optical 400 dpi scan from corner to corner.
The BookScanner 9000 is designed to give fast results. It scans the entire 28 inches wide by 18 inches high book in just 2.7 seconds. No time is wasted because the Book Scanner 9000 scans in both directions of travel.
