In addition to a distortion-free and true-color imaging technique, the optimal reproduction of surface structures requires in particular a differentiated lighting technique. Not every original to be digitized has a flat surface or texture that is sufficiently illuminated by a simple, conventional light source to be digitized without shadows or reflections./span>
For example, valuable illuminated old manuscripts with heightened and waved surfaces, special inks and colors and especially gold grounds and gildings require a special and equally gentle, conservational illumination technique.
Therefore, we at book2net have developed special lighting systems for the optimal illumination of a wide variety of objects. Whether you want to digitize stamps or large formats, coins or paintings, sealed letters or glass negatives, loose, bound, flat, raised or corrugated originals, glossy or matte surfaces or a wide variety of material structures (transparent, metallic, wooden, textile, earthen etc.) – the book2net scanning systems meet all requirements.
Gentle illumination from cold-light LEDs and Fresnel lenses ensure uniform, flat illumination with a soft edge and infinitely variable regulation of the light emission angle. Depending on the system, additional lighting or individually controllable and synchronized lighting units provide the greatest possible flexibility in the design of desired lighting scenarios such as incident light, sided light or transmitted light.
