Camera slider

The majority of our scanners are designed with a fixed geometry. This minimizes mechanical movements and allows the systems to work without wear for several years. One disadvantage, however, is that formats and resolutions are fixed. If, for example, you scan an A4 sheet with an A1+ scanner, you “give away” a large part of the recording area with the background, which is detected and removed by the software when automatic scanning is activated.

For institutions with different originals and especially changing format sizes in their collections, which always want to get the best possible resolution, we therefore offer flexible reprographic systems. These are equipped with adjustable camera sliders to which our capturing unit is attached. This allows the user to easily adjust the height of the camera, either manually or motorized, depending on the model. For large originals, the camera unit is moved upwards, i.e. away from the original; for small photos or slides, downwards, thus increasing the resolution of the scans.

Our software allows defining individual camera positions and calibration settings, so that the user can conveniently vary between the different options with just one mouse click.

The perfect solution for archives and institutions with changing and heterogeneous holdings.
