Bookeye ® 5 V1A – Cutting-Edge Technology, Fastest A1+ Book Scanner
Bookeye® 5 V1A Professional is the wide format book scanner of choice for digitization projects which require formats more than DINA1+ up to 25×36 inches.
Bookeye 5 V1A is extremely book-friendly, safe, and fast. It has the lowest possible footprint in the industry for a desktop model, A1+ book scanner.
Using the cutting-edge camera technology from Image Access, this scanner meets FADGI *** and ISO 19264 guidelines, capturuing images at unmatched speeds. At 600dpi resolution and with all image enhancements turned on, its scanning time is a mere 4 seconds. The cycle time is less than 8 seconds, including all movements of the glass plate.
The Bookeye 5 V1A is the only scanner with a motorized, height adjustable glass top which also can be opened to any user defined angle. The advantages of this unique design are obvious.
The book cradle needs no motors. Because the book cradle is fixed, it can support any book imaginable with weights up to 30kg or 65lbs. The book cradle plates can be separated to accommodate books with spines up to 20cm / 8″ widths. A flexible fabric bridges the gap between the individual plates, allowing it to provide optimal support for damaged spines.
The Bookeye 5V1A book cradle is the most versatile in the industry supporting fully opened books at 180° with or without the glass plate as well as partially opened books via its V-shaped book cradle, all in one device. Every other vendor has to offer different models to cover all three scenarios.
Before a new book is scanned, the lift motor lowers the glass plate onto the book until the desired pressure is reached. The pressure is measured highly accurately, and it can be up to 10Kg / 22lbs under operator control. Once the book´s thickness is programmed into the lift mechanics, the scanner only needs to open and close the scanning glass to allow for book page flipping. The borderless glass plate opens automatically after each scan to the user defined angle. The speed at which the glass plate opens and closes is also user adjustable.
When the glass plate is completely open, the operator has the option to work manually with almost no force required. The glass plate stays put in every position and the pressure exerted on the book is manually defined by the operator. When the stop button on the right side of the keyboard is activated, all motors stop immediately. The operation can later be resumed after the disruption is removed.
