Book support

A book support is a simple device to adjust the height for scanning. For this, the bound template lies on two foam sheets. These have to be adjusted and replaced again and again in order to compensate for the height differences that arise between the left and right pages of the book when turning the pages of bound templates.



Good price-performance ratio for institutions such as small archives which only have to digitize bound documents sporadically.

The book support can simply be put aside when it is not needed.
