Book Scanning

Flatbed Scanners

  • Facedown scanning places stress on bindings

  • Books must be lifted to change pages

  • Images are distorted near the page binding

Overhead Scanners

  • Books must be fully opened to 180 degrees

  • Center of book creeps as pages are turned creating margin crawl

  • Images suffer from curved text lines

Copystand with Cradle

  • Books are opened on a v-shaped cradle and gently sandwiched under platen

  • Cradle and platen keep pages flat and eliminate margin crawl

  • Two cameras simultaneously capture sharp, curvature-free images
